Proposal: Fast Food

Reaches quorum at 9-0 with 1 Def and is enacted. -SingularByte

In the rule “Wide, Empty World of the Damned”, modify the text “As a daily action, a Demiurge can perform the Journey atomic action” or “As a Beat action, a Demiurge can perform the Journey atomic action” (whichever exists) to “A Demiurge can perform the Journey atomic action”.

Append the following to the rule Supplies:

A Demiurge may Scavenge for Supplies as a Beat action. By default this does nothing, but the rules text of a Location may add benefits to doing so. Where rules text refers to Scavenging for Supplies in a location, that should be interpreted as taking the Scavenging for Supplies action when the scavenging Demiurge has their Current Location set to that location.

Replace the Location Rules Text of Waterlogged Shops with

There are a publicly tracked number of tins of food in Waterlogged Shops, starting at 15 and with a minimum value of 0. Scavenging for Supplies in the Waterlogged Shops has the effect of reducing the number of tins of food by up to 3, and increasing the Provisions of the scavenging Demiurge by the chosen number.

Replace the Location Rules Text of Haunted Woods with

Scavenging for Supplies in the Haunted Woods has the effect of permitting the scavenging Demiurge a single roll of DICE X in the blognomic dice roller where X is the current value of Quorum. If the value rolled is greater than the number of Demiurges that have Haunted Woods as a Current Location, the scavenging Demiurge may increase their Provisions by up to 3.

As discussed in the comments of other proposals, this reduces movement to a free action other than its provisions cost. Getting more provisions for travel does need a beat cost (or some other cost) to stop you from taking countless moves for free, but I figure Scavenging can be useful as a mechanic when more items and locations enter the game.

“...increasing the Provisions of the scavenging Demiurge by the chosen number.”

should read

“...increasing the Provisions of the scavenging Demiurge by the same number.”

I’m seeing them as equivalent, honestly. When you’re reducing the tins, you’re choosing a number to reduce them by.
I also wanted to avoid cases where people reduce the tins by 1 and increase their provisions by 3 under the logic that it didn’t specify which number that it’s the same as.
