Proposal: Fighting

Self killed. Failed by Angry Grasshopper.

Add a new rule entitled “Fighting” with the following text:

Each Monk has a Temporary Fitness, tracked in parentheses after eir FitnessTemporary Fitness may be negative.

Any Monk may Pick a Fight with another Monk who is within 2 Moves of the first Monk’s Location.  When e does this, e picks a single Severity number(S) from the set [0(Fruit),1(Fists),2(Sticks and Stones),4(Knives),8(Broadswords),16(Wands of Death)].  E then performs a Fight consisting of 3 Rounds.

In each Round, the Monk who Picked the Fight rolls DICEF, where F is eir Temporary Fitness.  If this is less than a quarter of eir opponent’s Temporary Fitness, subtract DICES from eir opponent’s Temporary Fitness.  E then rolls DICEG, where G is eir opponant’s Temporary Fitness.  If this is less than a quarter of eir own Temporary Fitness, subtract DICES from eir Temporary Fitness. 

At the end of the Fight, if either Monk has a Temporary Fitness of 0 or less, e is moved to C-4M in the Infirmary.  Then, if either Monk has an Integrity of 0 or less, e is moved to the Detention Cell at A-12e.  Monks in the Detention Cell may not Fight.


If a rule entitled “Monk’s Code” exists and containes the text

No Monk may be involved in a fight with another Monk. (costs 4 for whoever starts it and 1 for the other one)

Change that text to:

No Monk may be involved in a Fight with another Monk. (costs 3*X for whoever starts it and 1*X for the other one, where X is the Fight’s Severity.  This may make eir Integrity negative.)

Change A-12d to a %.
Set all Monks’ Temporary Fitnesses to their Fitness.

I hope after all that that this submit works…

Oh, and could AG tweak the Map so that A-12e is in fact a detention cell impervious to any abusable encrypted rules?

Simply because it lets us throw fruit at eachother.

Pie Jesu domine… thwack!


Your mechanics give an advantage to whoever start the fight, though. Is that intentional?

Keep in mind the instigator also loses far more integrity.


22-04-2006 00:46:04 UTC

What is the advantage to the instigator?  As far as I can tell, the Monk with less Temporary Fitness has the advantage.

Actually for  despite my pacifist nature.

That’s a COV, by the way.

against S-K due to glaring loophole.
