Proposal: Enough, I said

Fails 1-3. — Quirck

Add a new rule titled “Numeric Limits”, with the following text:

This Rule takes precedence over other Dynastic Rules, unless otherwise specified by another Rule.
Whenever a change to a numeric Gamestate data would cause it to be over the maximum value, set this value to the maximum value instead. Also, whenever a change to a numeric Gamestate data would cause it to be below the minimum value, set this value to the minimum value instead.

Now it should work fine.

Shouldn’t this be going into the glossary? Either way, it contradicts the existing “An Editor who has a choice in whether to take an action defined by a dynastic rule may not take that action if both of the following conditions are true: a) the action’s effects are limited to changing values tracked in the GNDT and/or similar gamestate-tracking entities (such as a wiki page), and b) the action would change one or more of those values to an illegal value.” glossary rule.

It’s similar to (and should thus probably go in about the same place as) the existing “If a rule implies that the result of any calculation should be an integer (for instance, by attempting to store that result in, or add it to, a gamestate variable that can only hold integers), the result of the calculation is instead the result rounded towards 0.”
