Proposal: Stocktake

Reached quorum 6 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Replace “Strong Gin” with “Bottle of Gin” throughout the dynastic ruleset, replace “Beer Googles” with “Goggles”, replace “The Living Portal” with “The Picture Frame” and “the Portal” with “the Frame”, and replace “Sticky Taffy” with “Taffy”.

Add “The ” to the start of the name of any subrule of Artefacts which does not already start with “The “, and capitalise the first letter of every word in the names of those rules.

Had a different idea and realised it was redundant. Since I can’t delete a proposal but can only reword it, here’s a quick cleanup of the Artefact names and rule titles to make them all into neutrally-reported everyday items.

I mean, this is just frivolous renaming and my against is because I (frivolously) prefer the names we already got.

It’s always good to unify stuff, and the majority of names are “The [Mundane Object]” right now. Either the Institute gives these things descriptive adjectives or they don’t.

(Referring to objects like this is lifted directly from The Lost Room, which I enjoyed a lot for how much dramatic weight characters could throw around with statements about banal objects. “Tell Kreutzfeld I have the Glass Eye.”)
