Proposal: Hot bribes

Timed out and enacted without the EVC rider, 5-1. Josh

Adminned at 28 Jan 2012 00:46:15 UTC

Amend rule 2.4 “Heat” by adding the following text as a second paragraph:

Whenever a Criminal performs an Assisted Action defined in rule 2.3 “Swag”, they must pay M times 100 Wealth, where M is the maximum of the Culprit and the Lookout’s Heats.

If half the number of Effective Vote Comments on this Proposal, rounded down, plus one include the text “KOEN MUST PAY AS WELL”, in all caps, then decrease Ltn Koen’s Wealth by 1,600.

If rule 2.8 “The New Don in Town” contains the text “A Criminal’s Leadership is equal to whichever value is highest out of their Wealth, Firepower, and Respect”, replace it with:

A Criminal’s Leadership is equal to whichever value is lowest out of their Wealth, Firepower, and Respect

Heat was supposed to be a bad thing, yet so far it hasn’t really mattered at all.
In case you think that’s dishonest of me to have other people pay when I did all of that for free, I think I should have paid 100+300+300+400+500 or something, hence the quorum of evc stuff.

The New Don in Town’s amendment have people need to raise all three of their ressources in order to win.

Really should’ve been two proposals, don’t really see the point in either.

The point in the first one is that Heat was initially supposed to be a bad thing; however, Southpointingchariot and I repectively have 5 and 6 Heat, which seems to be a lot more than everyone else, and nothing special have happened to us. So why define heat in the first place, if it has no effect?

As for the second, it was Southpointingchariot’s idea. It’s supposed to prevent anyone to win with only one lucky swag: for instance I have 39188 Respect but only 811 Firepower, so with the current rule my Leadership is 39188; this proposal would set it to 811.

Good idea, although I notice given the current GNDT stats, it seems rather calculated to safeguard your lead :)
