Proposal: Groundshaking Reforms

Timed out 1 vote to 7. Failed by Kevan. -2 to Arthexis.

If Proposal “Not a Word from our Sponsor” fails, this proposal does nothing.

Create a new rule “Rule Shaking [6 Points]”:

As a daily action a Player may attempt to Shake one rule or sub-rule (know as the Targeted Rule) that has no sub-rules itself. In order to start Shaking, that Player rolls DICEX twice in the GNDT, when X is the number of words on the Targeted Rule. Then, that Player finds the words whose appearance in the Targeted Rule match the results of the rolled DICE. The Player may then, exchange 1 letter from the first word with 1 letter on the second word, but only if both of the new words actually exist in the English language. If they do, the Shaking succeeds; otherwise it fails.

Some rules are Unshakable and cannot be Targeted Rules. All non-dynastic rules are Unshakable. A rule is also Unshakable if it contains any “suffusion of yellow”.

against CoV, on second thoughts. It’s a fun mechanic, but it’d be too easy to prevent an imminent win by mangling the victory rule.

@Kevan: That’s why I added the last sentence. We could also add the word “victory” to that list.

You could also stop a victory by mangling some of the dependent rules; throwing a spanner into “Team Politics” would be enough to shut down the “Political Victory” rule.

There are also a few ways in which “King Anthony’s Crown” could go bad, of course…

against This is likely to be either a trivial winscam, or useless.
