Proposal: Destiny

Self-Killed -Bucky

Add a new sub-rule to rule 2.1 “The Plot” titled “Destiny” with the following text:

As a bi-weekly action, Characters may Private Message the Narrator with a message titled “Destiny Request”.  The Narrator may then reply to the request with a description of a “Foresight” event specifically involving the Character making the request.  Characters may then reply to the Narrator with a Private Message titled “Publish” or “Do Not Publish”.  If the Character replies with a Private Message titled “Publish”, then the “Foresight” event is made public information and is added to the “Plot Summary” wiki document.  If the Character replies with a Private Message titled “Do Not Publish”, then the “Foresight” event is not made public information and is not added to the “Plot Summary” wiki document.  Characters may send another Private Message titled “Publish” after a Private Message titled “Do Not Publish” is sent which will override the previous message.

Still getting used to the verbage of proposals so forgive me if its poorly worded.  Planning on making a second proposal to tie in plot points

“Daily Action” and “Weekly Action” are defined in the Glossary, but it’s not clear exactly what a “Bi-weekly Action” would be, even ignoring that “biweekly” is ambiguous: it can mean either “semi-weekly” or “fortnightly”. against

against What HS said.  The rest seems sound, though.  My only concern is the sheer quantity of pms with the same title.  Also, what happens if Character A makes two destiny requests but only wants the second one published?  According to this rule, the very act of him sending a pm to publish the second one would override the wish to not publish the first.

against Didn’t we have a problem with bi-weekly before Yoda? My thinking is it could only be done once every 2 weeks.

against Per Darknight. Last dynasty I attempted something like this and failed. Maybe we should define bi-weekly in the glossary first?
