Proposal: Different statistics

Reached quorum, 10 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 19 Nov 2007 07:54:27 UTC

Create a new rule “Statistics” (or, if “Detail Addition to Simplicity Version 2” passes, then rewrite that rule as follows):

Each Einherjar has a rating from -10 to 10 (only integer values are valid) in each statistic on the list of Einherjar Statistics below.  If an Einherjar’s description on the [[Einherjar]] wiki page omits a value for a particular Einherjar Statistic then it is assumed to be zero.
The Einherjar Statistics are:
* Wit (represents cleverness/sense of humor and related personality traits)
* Scholasticism (represents intelligence, scholarship and academic achievment)
* Combat (means what you think it means)
* Moxie (represents luck, pluck and charm)
* Artistry (represents exceptional talent in the arts, music, literature or similar achievement)
* Tinkering (represents skill with invention and problem-solving)
* Charisma (represents leadership ability and attractiveness)
* Mysticism (represents aptitude for theology or prophecy).

In addition, each Einherjar has exactly one of the two permissible values for each of the following Binary Einherjar Statistics:
* Gender [male or female]
* Sanity [sane or insane]

for either form of this rule works out for me.

for Thank you for including a default value for unspecified stats.  If this passes, I recommend that most Einherjar have only a few nonzero stats, so that the wiki page is more readable.

I specifically included the default=0 clause so that Hix wouldn’t have to go crazy trying to figure out things like combat values for people like Shirley Temple.

for If you were a Valkyrie, why would you recruit Shirley Temple in the first place?
