Proposal: Expedition Leader’s expedition leading

Reached quorum 6-1. Enacted by card.

Adminned at 26 May 2017 19:02:23 UTC

Add a section called “Expedition Leading”, within it, add:

There is a wiki page called “Mission Status”. This always contains (tracks) three or zero Missions and their content (except for “Secret Treasure”), and also contains (tracks) “Amount of Missions Completed”, which defaults to 0.

Each Mission has the following:
Title: A flavor-appropriate name for the Mission
Synopsis: A flavor-appropriate description of the Mission
Goal: An unambiguous description of a certain gamestate pattern. This must also state a certain amount of Participants (Explorers). For example, “Three Explorers are at South Camp. These Explorers are the Participants”.
Status: This can have a status of “Pending”, “Completed” and default to “Pending”.
Reward: A certain profit, for example, more Supplies or Dog Sleds.
Secret Treasure: This can be “Double Reward”, “None” or “Eldritch Horror”. When a Mission is created, this value is secretly randomly determined.

When a Mission’s Goal has been met, any Explorer (who is a Participant of that Mission’s Goal) can set that Mission’s Status from “Pending” to “Completed” with a “Mission Hand-in” public blog post, which must state the Mission and Participants involved.

The Expedition Leader may then Stamp a Mission Hand-in post, by making a comment to that post with the image of a stamp and increasing Amount of Missions Completed by one. When this happens, all Participants gain the Reward each, and double that amount if its “Secret Treasure” value is “Double Reward”. After the Expedition is Stamped, the Expedition Leader can replace the Completed Mission with a new one.

why did you use “contains (track)” a bunch of times when “tracks” would have sufficed?

for although “and double that reward” means double treasure actually is triple treasure.

I think the completed mission should be tracked. The completing team and explorers should be listed on mission completion as well. If there’s any repeatable mission, they could be marked with a number denoting that this is the n-th undertaking of that mission.

[duck] if only there were a way to change the rules . . .
