Proposal: Fixing my mistakes

Times out and fails 2-2 -Larrytheturtle

No: it timed out 3-2 (GenericPerson, Kevan, Quick in favour, Brendan and IceFromHell against). Enacted by Kevan.

Alter the rule Bring Out Your Dead! to read as follows:

“As a daily action, an Orc may make a request to examine the dead by making an Entry announcing that they wish to examine the dead. A request to examine the dead consists of the following.
Step 1: The health of all creatures is checked. Creatures are checked in the order they appear in the Ruleset. If at least one creature has less than 0 health, proceed to step 2. Otherwise, nothing happens, and the request to examine the dead is complete.
Step 2: For each creature that has less than 0 health, if that Creature has Loot, the last Orc that damaged that creature is allowed to distribute the loot of that creature as if they were the attacker in step 4 of the rule Attacking. If no Orc can be said to have damaged that creature, then that loot is removed from that creature. Either way, that creature is to be labeled Properly Examined. Each creature with less than 0 health is examined from top to bottom order, based on their position in the Ruleset. After all creatures with less than 0 health have been labeled Properly Examined, proceed to step 3.
Step 3: Remove any Properly Examined creatures with less than 0 health from the Creatures rule. The request to examine the dead is now complete.”

In addition, Person gains a Potion of Toughness, Kevan gains a Potion of Strength, and Quirck gains a Potion of Dexterity.

I’ve also updated it to use the damage rule. I’ve also made it a daily action, because that’s probably a better way to go about the timing restriction.

What’s the mistake and why was the previous examining action apparently dialled back?


22-03-2016 13:47:35 UTC

Why aren’t we considering 0 hp creatures dead?
By the way, we already defined dead, I think it would make the text simpler if you useds it.

@kevan it was that the examining the dead rule refers to sub rule 4 of attacking when the rule attacking doesn’t have any subrules. A numbered list is not the same thing when subrule is already defined as being something.

Examining the dead previously referred to “sub rule 4 of Attacking”. Attacking evidently has no sub rules.

Actually, CoV.  against As an orc, I demand to be bribed with potions to vote for this.


22-03-2016 22:34:13 UTC

against I’m with Brendan on this, as I’m quite far behind already.


22-03-2016 23:29:08 UTC

I’m not getting in on this but I just wanna point out that “person gets a potion of toughness” doesn’t do anything as its not the same as genericperson.


23-03-2016 02:12:14 UTC

Yeah I noticed that a while back and just sort of gave up.
