Proposal: Imputation of Usurpation

Timed out 3 votes to 1. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 11 Jun 2018 12:11:43 UTC

In “Mutiny”, replace “The Captain becomes a Prisoner, and the chief mate, second mate and third mate become a Prisoner if they did not vote For the mutiny.” with:-

Any Mate who did not vote For the Mutiny loses 1 Health Point. The Captain becomes a Prisoner, the Chief Mate (if there is one) becomes a Deckhand, and the Sailor who attempted the Mutiny becomes Chief Mate.

Replace “Otherwise, every sailor who voted For the mutiny at any point (even if they changed their vote later) becomes a Prisoner.” with:-

Otherwise, every sailor who voted For the mutiny at any point (even if they changed their vote later) loses 1 Health Point.

Mutinies aren’t very compatible with the one-person brig: if the Captain and three Mates have different Prestiges, then imprisoning the four of them means that three can (if they act quickly) immediately unimprison themselves, resume being Mates and reinstall the old Captain.

(This makes the mutineer Chief Mate rather than Captain, as making them Captain could allow the three previous Mates to retake their positions and immediately replace the usurper.)

Having said that, mutinies seem entirely redundant at present, since a straight proposal to set the gamestate to the desired situation is better in every way.
