Proposal: Lockdown Protocol

Times out and fails, 3 votes to 4. (Josh and Cuddlebeam’s votes erase each other, per Household Unit.) Failed by Kevan.

Add the following rule to the ruleset, titled Security:

Whether or not Earthlink Tower is on Lockdown is publicly tracked. To place Earthlink Tower on Lockdown, perform the following atomic action:
* Activate the special case rule No Collaboration.

To take Earthlink Tower off lockdown, perform the following atomic action:
* Deactivate the special case rule No Collaboration.

Any citizen(s) on the same floor may communicate freely with one another, regardless of restrictions imposed by the special case rule No Collaboration.

No Citizen may achieve victory while Earthlink Tower is on Lockdown.

Add the following Zone Rule to Security:

Comms Desk: This zone has a cache containing:
1-70: Radio
71-90 Keycard
91-100: Flashlight

Add the following to the list of items described in Supply Requisitions:

* Radio: While Earthlink Tower is on Lockdown, any Citizens with a radio may communicate freely with each other through PMs on the BlogNomic website. If they do, they must CC the drone on any/all communications.

If the proposal “Some Zone Rules” wasn’t enacted, the rest of this proposal does nothing.

Add the following step to the atomic action described in The Clock:

* If the number of players with a Heat Signature is greater than or equal to quorum, place Earthlink Tower on Lockdown.

Rephrase Floors’ Zone Rule as follows:

Emergency Exit: A Citizen who is occupying this Zone may freely set their Floor to any Floor, as long as Earthlink Tower is not on lockdown.

“To place Earthlink Tower on Lockdown, perform the following atomic action:” reads a bit like anyone can do this at any time.

I agree, Kevan.

I like the general thrust, but I’m not sure whether there will be any appetite for another semi-no-collabs dynasty after the last one.

[Josh] Ah, I wasn’t around for the last dynasty, so I didn’t know that was a thing. Anyways, the idea is that it would be a temporary thing, but the players who are most prepared can use it to their advantage. Also, during a lockdown it encourages collaborating players to be on the same floor despite Household Unit.

[Kevan] It doesn’t specify who is allowed to and when they are allowed to, so I think it’s safe to say that no one should perform the action unless a rule directs them to.

against Just gonna throw my opinion in here, I am not a fan of no collab to start with, and especially just coming from a dynasty that used it I’m not really up for doing another one, even if it is just no-collabs part-time.

having to check if no-collabs is enabled sounds really annoying. Especially because people could be chatting and not even realize a third person put things on lockdown.
