Proposal: Fifty Times Your Own Weight

Passes 9-0 with quorum FOR. -Bucky (Correction: 10-0)

Create a new Rule, titled “Carrying”:-

Each Creature may carry a single object at a time from the following list - this carried object is tracked in the GNDT column ‘Carrying’. Carryable objects are:-

  • Leaf. A small section of leaf cut from a larger plant.
  • Sugar. A speck of sugar-rich matter found in the environment.
  • Crumb. A small item of less nutritious matter.
  • Twig. A small stub of a leaf stalk.
  • Mould. A section of fibrous mould grown within the colony.
  • Egg. A single ant’s egg.

As a daily action, an Ant who is not carrying an object may start carrying a Leaf, Twig, Sugar or Crumb by updating their GNDT field to this effect.

If the proposal “Long Live the Queen” failed, replace “Creature” with “Ant” in the rule created above.

Long Live the Queen was worded to allow creatures (aka NPCs) and ants to be seperate. Ants are not creatures, although creatures may be ants. Thus “As a daily action, an Ant who is not carrying an object may start carrying a Leaf, Twig, Sugar or Crumb by updating their GNDT field to this effect.” is broken, because Ants technically arn’t allowed to carry stuff.

Donno if it would be better to assume good intent and properly change it later or just re-propose a proper version.

Good point, I’d mistakenly assumed that Ants were Creatures. “As a daily Action, X may do Y by performing an impossible task” isn’t damagingly broken, though, we can wait for the fix to enact.
