Reached quorum 7 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Add to the rule “Habitat”

An organ may change the name of any cell in the habitat map named “Scouted Location” by commenting that they are doing so in the GNDT. The name the cell changed to must be a “Valid Final Name”. The valid final name the cell’s name is being changed to must be unique on the habitat map. The comment must uniquely identify which cell is being renamed by giving either directions from a unique location on the Habitat Map, by counting positions, or by referring to the grid coordinates associated with that cell: (eg. “4B” which would refer to the fourth cell from the top in the second column)

a “Valid Final Name” is one of the following forms

*[feature name] of Solitude
*[feature name] of Activity
*[feature name] of Pendantry
*[feature name] of Laxness
*[feature name] of Bounty
*[feature name] of Desolation
*[feature name] of Hope
*[feature name] of Despair
*[feature name] of Gratitude
*[feature name] of Entiltement
*[feature name] of Calm
*[feature name] of Turbulence
*[feature name] of Plenty
*[feature name] of Hunger
*[organ name]‘s [feature name]
*The [color] [feature name]
*little [featurename]
*The Great [featurename]
*The Tall [featurename]
*The Wide [featurename]
*Devil’s [featurename]

*[featurename] must be the name of a terrain feature in the cell being named.
*[organ name] must be the name of an organ who is playing.
*[color] must be a color that cannot be confused for a game term. Colors named after sea creatures are explitly forbidden.

 

Because “Scouted Location” is a terrible name.

Does “colors named after sea creatures are explicitly forbidden” mean that purple is out?

I guess no location can be named after Viv.

Never will we watch the tides move again over “Viv’s Large Rock Outcropping”.
