Create the following rule, titled “Basic Mechanics”

Each Settler has a publicly tracked list of items called a Stockpile, which defaults to being empty. The following is a list of items that may be in a Settler’s stockpile:
- Wheat
- Sheep
- Stone
- Wood
- Brick

Each Settler also has 5 publicly tracked Domain variables, one for each of Wheat, Sheep, Stone, Wood, and Brick. Each Domain holds up to a single number, defaulting to no number. The number each Domain holds may range from 2 to 12, excluding 7. A Settler may not have two or more Domains which hold the same number.

Create the following rule, known as “The Gift of the Isle”:

If they have not done so in the past 36 hours, the Onlooker may roll 2d6 twice, which is known as the Production of Resources. The sums for the two pairs of d6 rolls are known as the two Results for the Production of Resources action. If both of the results are the same, the Onlooker rerolls the second one until it is not the same. The date, time, and both results of the most recent Production of Resources are publicly tracked.

If a Settler has not done so since the most recent Production of Resources, they may perform the following atomic action, known as Harvesting the Crop:
- For each Domain they have where the number matches either of the results from the Production of Resources, they gain the resource associated with that domain to their Stockpile.
- Optionally, they may also do one of the following:
  *  Swap the numbers for two of their domains with each other.
  *  Replace the number for one of their domains with another up to two higher or lower than it.


What I intend to be the basic mechanics for this dynasty.

“may range from 2 to 12, excluding 7 and defaulting to empty” reads weird - ‘may range from 2 to 12’ implied that those exclusively are the valid values, making the empty default invalid. ‘may be empty, or an integer from the range from 2 to 12 excluding 7, and defaulting to empty’ would probably be better.

Are you intentionally leaving out how the Domain numbers are set? I just want to know if that’s open for another Proposal to determine.

Completely open.
