Create a new rule called “Social Relationships”:

A Person can Socialize by paying 2 Stamina and choosing a Target for that Socializing (which can be any Person other than yourself). The following are the ways to Socialize:
- Bond: Gain the Factor “Storge: X” for a value of 1 (or increase it by 1 if you already have it), where X is the name of the Target.
- Share Hobby: If you and the Target are the two People with the highest and/or second highest value for a certain Factor, gain the Factor “Philia: X” for a value of 1 (or increase it by 1 if you already have it), where X is the name of the Target.

The Factors listed below are Social Bonus Factors. A Person can gain a Social Bonus Factor if they fulfill its condition, which is noted in “[]” brackets. Those Factors also can have effects, also listed below:
- Family Support [You and another Person have at least a value of 2 of the “Storge: X” Factor (where X is the other’s name) for each other.]: Whenever your Happiness is or becomes a value below 5, it then becomes 5.
- Group Fun [You and another Person have at least a value of 2 of the “Philia: X” Factor (where X is the other’s name) for each other.]: Whenever you perform an Activity that causes you to gain 5 or more Happiness, then gain 3 Happiness.
- Social Butterfly [You have the “Philia: X” Factor (where X is the name of a Person) for 3 different People]: Whenever a Social Bonus Factor other than Social Butterfly makes you gain Happiness, you gain 1 Happiness.

TyGuy defined the plural of “Person” as “People” in the Ascension Address, and that is what the Ruleset uses now. Will “Persons” create a problem for us?

Hrmmmm I’m going to invoke the typo-fix rule here to fix that even though its 4 hours in.

Fair enough. My ability to make the plural in the first place is technically only allowed for smoothing things out. ;)

for Should be they “can gain a Social Bonus Factor, at value 1, if they…” As it stands, gaining a Factor appears to be untrackable? If you say you gained it, and it doesn’t appear in the wiki at value 0, it’d be orphaned, as I suppose.

against Alright, CB, let’s do some rewriting. Mixing numeric and boolean variables is enough of an oddity that I expect it done more smoothly. Perhaps with fewer moving parts coming in all at once.

And I like everyone to have more time to work out what they want to do in the dynasty, before the complications grow too much.
