Proposal: Givng the Disabled something to do

At 1-7, cannot pass. Failed by Brendan.

In the subrule “Sabotage”, replace “An Android may Sabotage a Proposal by sending a Private Message to the Ship’s Computer informing it of this intention.” with “An Android or Disabled Crewmember may Sabotage a Proposal by sending a Private Message to the Ship’s Computer informing it of this intention. This is a Cerebral action.”

Disabled crewmembers are a minority in much the same way that Androids are, and should probably have the same rules-based protection. Otherwise, it’s easy for non-Disabled crewmembers to collectively push through plans that make it even harder for Disabled crewmembers to win.

against I think they’re more a minority in the same way as a subset of players who have a high or low score, or who have committed to a particular strategy. Being an outlier is always risky in Nomic because a majority might prefer to go another way. I don’t see why this group deserves greater protection than any other non-Android subgroup.

Because like Androids, they’re not in it through choice.
