Proposal: It Dices, It Slices

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

In the Appendix section “Numbers and Variables”, after “If a number or other game variable is selected ‘at random’ or ‘randomly’ from a range of possible values, its value shall always be taken from a uniform probability distribution over the entire range of possible values, unless otherwise specified.”, add:-

This value must be determined by an appropriate DICE roll in the GNDT, unless otherwise specified.

Clarify that when something is chosen “randomly”, it requires a public GNDT dice roll.

RainbowKitten, things in the ruleset sometimes need to be done randomly, and this rule ensures that rather than people just saying they have done something randomly, they use the dice in the GNDT to show that the roll really was random. In other words, it’s common sense that “random” rolls need to be proven as random.
