Proposal: Fix part Three

Vetoed as redundant, to clear the queue (an earlier proposal added a new sentence to the end of the “Bloodline” rule, so this would have no effect).

Adminned at 07 Feb 2010 14:13:05 UTC

In the Rule “Bloodline” remove “or lower” in the last sentence.

Imagine following situation: A Guest “GuestA” has a DoR (degree of relation, I dont want to write this term all the time) of x. Another Guest “GuestB” has a DoR of x+1. If a new Guest arrives, he might get a DoR of x+1, too. If raise/lower is chosen randomally, too, GuestB has a 1/4 chance to get a DoR of x. But then two Guests have the same DoR - so GuestB has then a 1/4 chance (1/16 totally) to get a lower DoR than GuestA. When a new Guest arrives, it is always possible, that another one becomes Heir, the safe contains strange information and so on.

If raise/lower is not chosen randomally at such points (mabye Keavan would see this problem then), it would be unfair, because there are players, who have the chance to get a lower DoR, and only because another one has a DoR, which is one lower, you wont have such a chance unless the other player gets a lower DoR? Thats not ok, I think.

This also fixes the fix mentioned in “Proposal: Small Fix To The Small Fix”. Ill calculate later, how big the possibility of such an action is. I do not expect it is big, but there will be a chance for it though…

Too lazy to look up the ruleset or to read the flavour text. imperial as Kevan’s vote will likely be mine anyway.

imperial  Complex logic in flavor text… my brain hurts.

Darth:
Guest A - Heir
Guest B - Not heir

Guest C arrives and then

Guest A - Not heir
Guest B - Heir

..at least I think that’s the point

veto Vetoed as redundant, to clear the queue; the last sentence of the rule Bloodline is now “A guest may never have a degree of relation lower than 1.” and does not contain the phrase “or lower”.
