Proposal: Happiness is Inside-Out

Timed out 2 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Unless “class system” has been enacted, remove “Happiness” from the list of Factors all Persons have.

Change “A Person can perform an Activity by paying 1 Stamina and fulfilling its Cost. A Cost can be fulfilled by:”
To

A Person can perform an Activity by paying 1 Stamina, (Stamina can’t become negative,) adding its MHB (if any) to their own MHB, and fulfilling its Cost. A Cost can be fulfilled by:

Here’s where we integrate the MHB into Activities. Change all text from “Activities are the following” to the end of the rule it was found in, to read:

Activities are the following (with its Cost in “[]” brackets):

*Jog [0]: Gain 1 Health. MHB of 0,0,1.
*Study [1]: Gain 1 Acumen or Wisdom. MHB of 1,0,0.
*Test Subject Work [0]: Gain 5 Money. MHB of -1,-1,-1.
*Entrepreneur Work [0]: Gain Money equal to your Business-Skill. MHB of 1,1,0.
*Theme Park Visit [2]: MHB of -1,1,1

Factors started off kind of crazy, and some real balance issues are still doubtless present. The asymmetry seems interesting at the moment, but could be unworkable to balance in practice. Let’s get on that.

“piecewise” confused me at first. wouldn’t adding be implicit enough when mentioning MHB? Or if that isn’t enough, stating that MHB is a vector?

Ok, took out piecewise. You’re right, adding an MHB to another MHB seems obvious enough, anyway.
