Proposal: Lest We Run Faster than We have Strength

Quorums 9-0. — Quirck

To the rule “Anatomy” add:

An organ may only change its state to amorphous once per day.

 

Right now the rules encourage long chains of actions done quickly, ending by using up all the resources that the statolith has accumulated. This is accomplished by constantly going amorphous in order to gain nutrients. This rule puts a limit on these chains. As a reminder, we use UTC time, so Americans have days starting and ending in the evening.

for Right, it used to be a daily action, then Primordial Smoothie changed it.

Ah, if the statolith had many nutrients, one organ could potentially do a lot of actions.  for

for Taking a no-brainer change to Amorphous once per day is also quite boring, though.

Are you saying that’s a boring fix of the problem, or that you were hoping for a meatier proposal?

Probably there should be another way of disseminating nutrients to the Organs, ideally one that gets Gonium to Limbs and Nonium to Glands and so forth.

[Derrick] Just that if it’s mechanically uninteresting to have turning Amorphous as a free action that you should always take whenever you do anything, it’s still uninteresting if it’s a free action that you should always take once per day.
