Proposal: Either ways it’s just WUB WUB WUB

Timed out 1 vote to 9. Failed by Kevan.

Replace the text of rule 2.2 “A Note of Discord” with:

Musicians have a Style, which can be either Rock, Techno, or Classical, which will be secretly recorded by the Frontman.

At the creation of this rule, every active Musician, and after that, each Musician that joins or unidles for the first time in this dynasty, will be randomly assigned a style, either Rock or Techno.  Each Musician will then be notified of their style via private message by the Frontman, along with the name of another Musician who has the same style as them, if there is one at the time.

People start off with Rock or Techno, but could end up liking Classical better. Whenever an Harmony attempt (or whatever it’ll be named) succeeds, you have a chance to end up liking Classical, reducing your chances to make another one soon.

Wouldn’t “Whenever an Harmony Attempt succeeds, if all Musicians who are Band Members like Classical, however made the Harmony Attempt wins the game.” be a sweet victory condition?

against This makes it harder to form a band once you’ve been on Tour once, which is going to make people reluctant to join the Band at all. (The mechanic also doesn’t quite work, as post-Tour reassignment explicitly uses “the process used for new Musicians”.)

against What Kevan said.

I do like the idea of alternative styles that you can’t get by random seeding.

against I also like the premise but feel like implementation might need fixing.

Err, Kevan’s right. I’ll work a little bit more on this.

Any suggestion is appreciated. =)

(Should I just S/K it right now or leave it open so more people can comment?)

Jazz! The Frontman’s style is definitely Jazz!
I also like what Clucky said.
I also like your idea of a victory condition.

See the problem of making an enthusiast comment with an against vote is sometimes you forgot to cast the against !
