Elysian Fields

Jumble idles out after seven days with no posts or blog comments.

My understanding of the Buildings rule is that their Farm in the Fields still exists, but no longer has a valid owner: it must be “owned by a single Guardian or Foreign Power” and Jumble is no longer considered to be a Guardian - but nothing triggers to replace the Building’s owner with a different, legal value. We should change the Appendix to cover that kind of thing, although I’m not sure what the best approach would be.

Quorum drops to 6.

Wouldn’t it take on the earliest legal value alphabetically?

I was expecting it to, but can’t see that it does: the default value is only invoked as a “starting value”, and as something to reach for when “rules that define a game variable are amended, and some previously valid values become invalid as a consequence”, neither of which is happening here.

Uh, requesting to be unidled 😅

[Jumble] Okay, you’re back, and I’ll say the Farm defaults back to your ownership (it having a floating owner of “entity called Jumble if it exists” in your absence) unless anyone wants to dispute that. You are moved to the end of the Path.

Quorum rises back to 7.
