Proposal: Gee, oh! Polly ticks.

Create a new rule called Islands, with:

There are an amount of Islands on the Chart, which are on Squares, tracked on the Chart in a format of the Admiral’s choosing. An Island can be Captured by a Captain. The Islands that a Captain has Captured is tracked on a GNDT column named “Captures”. Islands can be Captured (by some Captain) or not Captured, and default to not Captured. The following are the Islands that exist:

- Shrimp Shire
- Cocktail Coasts
- Whiskey Whirlpool
- Tomato Town
- Paella Palace
- Mozzarella Mountains
- Cinnamon City

The Admiral can Spawn the Islands, which is to do the following: create one of each Island on the Chart, make a Blog post that announces this action, then remove this sentence from the ruleset.

I was going to use ports and colors, but this works just as well!

“create one of each Island on the Chart” doesn’t say that the Admiral gets to select their location in any way?

imperial The names seem a bit silly.

Clearly the rule needs further editing:
-No tracking of who has Captured which.
-No limit on who can Capture, or when, and no mention of how.
-As mentioned, Admiral doesn’t seem to choose locations when spawning, or it’s ambiguous.

Essentially, this just defines and names the Islands, (probably all on the top-left square by default).

against per TyGuy’s third point. The tracking for who’s captured what is in the GNDT and presumably we’d define capturing later

against CoV. But very much for the idea of islands
