Call for Judgment: Garbage Fire

Reaches quorum, 7-0. Josh

There’ve been a couple of weird interactions arising from the line “If a Nobleman makes no Bid on an Auction by the time it closes, they are considered to have made a single Bid of zero Money and zero Power on it” when it comes to resolving Auctions. The Garbage Pile changes compound those; I don’t know if I can, or should, be distinguishing between a Nobleman who makes no Bid and a Nobleman who makes a Bid that is regarded as zero because they are Dissolute, and what these mean for checking whether an “Item [...] received no Bids”. Or, for example, whether the default “single bid of zero Money” applies to all Items in an Auction, or just to the Auction itself, and therefore not to any specific Item contained within it.

So just to tidy up: in the rule Auctions, change the line “If a Nobleman makes no Bid on an Auction by the time it closes, they are considered to have made a single Bid of zero Money and zero Power on it” to read as follows:

If a Nobleman has made no Bid Message on an Auction by the time it closes, then they are considered to have made no Bid on any Desirable Item and a single Bid of zero Money and zero Power on any Undesirable Item contained within that Auction.

This also has the positive impact of meaning that only Desirable Items can be Repulsive.

I’ll hold off resolving Auction 7 for a bit to see how this does; I’d rather it be clearly enacted before I imperil the gamestate too much.
