To “Sides”, add:-

If a Vessel was Sunk during the processing of the most recent Watch’s Orders, any Captain who controls a Vessel which caused damage to the Sunk Vessel during the processing of those Orders may alter their own Side’s Attribute to any valid Attribute (other than “None”).

Sorry, but Vessels don’t cause damage. Shots are created anonymously, and those shots cause damage.

Unless you’re going off of Ramming Speed? That could be a thing. imperial

against Defection creates weird vicious cycles, which don’t really feel that appropriate if we want to define sides.

I think we have a misunderstanding. The Side’s Attribute is like their group talent. This isn’t about changing which side you’re on!

Ah, bland variable names.

I was thinking the path of causality from ship to shot to damage was unambiguous enough. This does get harder to track with Mines, though, I suppose.

oh, its about switching side specialties, not sides. sorry.

As Kevan said, bland variable names. bah!
