Proposal: It’s dangerous to go alone

Reached quorum 8 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

If the proposal Protection Money failed, this proposal does nothing.

In the rule Thug, replace the paragraph starting “Bribe Value is a number privately tracked” (including its bullet points that follow immediately after it) with:

Base Bribe Value and Adjusted Bribe Value are numbers privately tracked by the Onlooker per Settler that is calculated using the amounts of each item in that Settler’s Bribe as follows, defaulting to 0. When calculating the Base Bribe Value, the Onlooker must use the following steps:
* Start with a Base Bribe Value of 0
* Add 1 to the Base Bribe Value for each type of item in the Settler’s Bribe that has an amount of at least 1
* Add 2 to the Base Bribe Value for each type of item in the Settler’s Bribe that has an amount of at least 3
* If the Settler has continuously had a Faction of Pirates from before the most recent time that the Visitor value was set to “Thug”, their Base Bribe Value is tripled. (It as advised that the Settler inform the Onlooker of this fact when submitting a Bribe.)

When calculating the Adjusted Bribe Value of a Settler (here referred to as the Target), the Onlooker must start with the Base Bribe Value of the Target and add 50% of the Base Bribe Value of every Settler that has the Target listed as their Alliance.

Replace each instance of “Bribe Value” outside of this newly added text in the rule Thug with “Adjusted Bribe Value”.

The intent of this change is simple enough. If you’ve got friends, the Thugs are less likely to mess with you. If you’ve got pirate friends, the thugs are *much* less likely to mess with you.
