Proposal: Eureka! Packed Lunch

Times out and is enacted 3-2. -coppro

Adminned at 15 Sep 2011 04:27:32 UTC

Add a new effect for “A small icebox full of food”:

If a Survivor possesses the Icebox and a second Edible Item, they may remove the second Edible Item from play, and increase the Icebox’s Portions by the number of Portions the second Edible Item had. When the Icebox is reduced to zero Portions it does not cease to exist. A Survivor cannot take a bite from an Icebox which has zero Portions. At any time, any admin may rename the Icebox to “A small icebox” in the GNDT and this list, and remove this sentence from the ruleset.

against The last sentence causes problems, as you can ignore the third sub-clause (after “any admin may”) and remove that sentence. That means you could have an empty icebox which says its full of food.

Not sure that I follow your reasoning there - the clause is “and”, so they have to do both.

It depends on whether you read the sentence as:

“At any time, any admin may (rename the Icebox to “A small icebox” in the GNDT and this list, and remove this sentence from the ruleset.)”

(How you read it - You do both or neither)

or

“At any time, any admin may (rename the Icebox to “A small icebox” in the GNDT and this list), and [at any time, any admin may] remove this sentence from the ruleset.”

(How it could be read - The first part, or indeed the second part, could be ignored.)

[Anduril] I suppose. Well, worst case we have an item with an arguably illogical name, which is already the case for the icebox (it’s still “full of food” despite more than half of its portions having been eaten), and it only happens if an admin decides to be perverse.

I guess I’m just unhappy with the principle of giving admins rule altering powers.

for IMHO the glitch is not game breaking. To get it off the list…

CoV against as this item is incredibly powerful.
