Proposal: Handy Land

Everyone showed up for this one, and it passes 8-1. Enacted by pokes.

Return all Handyworked numbers to their original values.

Replace the entire Handyman background ability with:-

When a Handyman would spend a number of Supplies to perform an action, they may instead spend half that number of Supplies (rounding up) to perform it. (This ability may not be used more than once per action.)

It’s a fun idea, but per the Silver Key (where “each Explorer has zero or more Artefacts” could be changed to “one or more” to give everyone an Artefact), overpowered unless we’re very careful. And we possibly only have one Handyman, and it’s the player who most enjoys trying weird things.

I’m not actually convinced that this is a weaker power than the old one, it’s just less open and less weird.

It gives more benefits. The Handyman before would’ve had to use an action a lot for it to be worth the 4 supplies to change it in the first place.
