Proposal: Hermaphroditic Apes

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Change the first two steps of the Generation Event action to

- Choose two Apes that have the most food. If there are 3 or more tied, randomly choose 2 Apes from that set. For the rest of this action the Genetics of the chosen Apes in this step are labeled A and B, one for each Ape.
- For each Genetics of each Ape and the Genetics in the sentence starting with “The default Genetics is the one noted as”, change the first through the fifth Gene by setting it to a Gene randomly (but not necessarily in the GNDT) chosen from the corresponding Genes of A and B.

keeping track of gender and choosing one winner from each pool doesn’t seem too useful when its possible for a generation to have 0 of a pool. this is just a simpler way of combining Genetics.

made a script to help out with the random rolling for a filled out example and for a blank one

I’d like to unidle (hopefully I’ll make it thru this dynasty, it seems really fun)

Tiebreaking on “two Apes that have the most food” doesn’t cover the situation where the food distribution is something like 10-9-9-8-7, though.

So difficult to decide on!

On the one hand, mixing genes is really cool. On the other, I really want to play around with gender specific traits.

As a note, a script for random generation should include a random seed. I’m fond of:

Its the source I used on the wizard card deal.

If this passes, We’ll want to work out an official script to use and have one or more of us stick it up on our personal sites, as that’s a lot of rolling.

Actually, imperial since this requires a lot of rolling from the Monolith.

imperial I’d veto because it would be too much work without those scripts though. But with them its fine. Up to you guys if you want this mechanic or not.
