Proposal: Factionalism

popular 9 to 0, with 1 def. Enacted by Derrick.

Create a new rule called “Sides”, with:

Each Captain has one Side, which is either Red, Green, Blue, or None, which is tracked in the GNDT. The default value is None.

Any Captain may randomly assign a Captain with a Side of None to one of the Sides with the least members (excluding None) by assigning them to the side with the least Captains (excluding None) if there is only one, or assigning them to Red if they roll 1, Green if they roll 2, or Blue if they roll 3. If a roll would place a Captain on a Side that is not the smallest (excluding None), the roll shall be rerolled until a valid Side that is the smallest (excluding None) is selected.

I believe this is a valid way of assigning factions? I’m assuming this is a war theme.

I don’t think we’ll be able to end this way, but I do think this makes the sea a little less crowded.

imperial Not sure this can actually get started, though, if we’re trying to roll until we get “the smallest” of three empty sets.

Three empty sets should all be the “smallest”. There will be a number of rerolls when there are two smallest factions, but that will only happen 1 out of every 9 rolls.

[derrick] But there’s a “the” in there, so we’re having to point to the thing which is the smallest. I don’t think you can do that if three things are the same size.
