Proposal: Handywork

Times out 5-3. Enacted by pokes.

Adminned at 30 May 2017 00:30:23 UTC

Add to “Backgrounds”:

A Handyman with Tools can perform Handywork on a a Dynastic Rule which they share location with. Handywork consists in choosing a number which explicit as text (eg. one, nine) or figures (eg. 1, 9) and increase it or decrease it by 10% or 1, by paying 3 supplies for this purpose. A Handyworked number (a number affected by Handywork) has the bold font, and cannot be affected by Handywork again. A Handyman can Undo Handywork and return a Handyworked number to its original state (former value and lack of bold font) by paying 2 supplies.

Handywork cannot be done on this Rule (Backgrounds).

Powerful, but has conditions and handymen need to agree on what they’re doing (cheaper to undo than it is to do).

against What’s to stop changing 19 = 00000000019 => 10000000019 ?

pokes: I don’t think that’s allowed since that number is not explicitly written in the rules. It raises the question what exactly a number is though, could you change 500 -> 400 by changing the 5? Is the 5 a number? against

I also don’t think it would be allowed, but I get the feeling that wouldn’t stop some Explorers from trying.
