Proposal: Lonely planet just got lonelier…

Quorum against, 1-5. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 01 Aug 2017 20:38:46 UTC

If the Lonely planet proposal is enacted then this proposal changes the rule Latitudes
Enact a new rule, “Latitudes”:-

Each CIC occupies a Latitude between 1 and 26 inclusive, equal to the position of the first letter of the CIC’s Name in the alphabet minus the last letter of the CIC’s name. (If the first letter of a CIC’s Name does not appear in the Latin alphabet, its Latitude is instead equal to 1DICE26.) (If the result is Negative then the positive Integer of that result is used)

The Distance between two CICs is the absolute difference between their Latitudes.


Modifcation of Kevan’s proposal making it more interesting… Might need to revamp it a little later on…

Card: 1
Cuddlebeam: 10
Derrick: 7
Dewaldo: 11
Kevan: 3
Maldor: 5
Pokes: 3
PSS: 3
Thunder: 2

That’s an interesting spread. I might like my position. Maybe.

As a note, if the letters were random we’d get a curve highest at 0 and smoothly sloping down to 25. As they are not, we still see a a strong leaning towards 10 or less.

against It gives us a slightly different spread, but makes it much harder to skim the GNDT to see who’s next to each other. We might as well have a new game variable “Latitude” for every player at this point.

I think we’re not going to be happy with our positions until its totally random (dicerolls at enactment. Im not too excited about more RNG like this though) or actually earned (Auction?)

Sorry but against

against Lonely planet wasn’t passed so this does nothing anyway.
