Proposal: Half Magic

Times out 4-2. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 05 Aug 2022 19:07:52 UTC

The following Systems are Discounted: Grinder, Plate, Targeting Module, Back-Up Battery. If any Bot or any Spare Parts Bin has any Discounted System, remove it, then increase the Money of its Operator by its Cost multiplied by its Condition. Once all Bots have no Discounted Systems, divide the Cost of each Discounted System in the Ruleset by 5, and divide the Consumption of each Discounted System in the Ruleset by 2.

In the effects of the System called Ram, change “Shoving” to “Shoving or Bumping”.

Reduce the Consumption of Taser to 290.

The following Systems are Recalibrated: Mound-Shaped Body, Spikes, Cow Catcher, Lead Weight. Set the Consumption of each Recalibrated System to 30. If the changes to Consumption for Recalibrated Systems would cause any non-Defunct Bot to become Defunct, set the Readiness of that Bot’s Operator to Workshop.

Reframing Josh’s omnibus systems overhaul.

This is not appealing to me. Why is there a refund for the buffed Systems, but not the nerfed ones?

Because the price of the Recalibrated systems isn’t changing. I could add a clause that buys them all those systems out and gives people cash for them, but that would put at least one person (SupernovaStarbright) over the ₩20k limit.

for The tactical components would get a DEF but there’s some long-overdue balance changes in there that I’d be happy to see on the books

Most of this I’m fine with, but I don’t think Taser needs significant a buff - it’s already a common weapon.
