Proposal: Making the Ruleset Neat

Passes 9-1. I’ll get to work enacting it. - Qwazukee.

Adminned at 25 Jun 2009 02:11:56 UTC

Take the following actions in order. When a reference is made to a “Rule”, that reference includes all subrules of that Rule, as well as subrules of subrules of that Rule, et cetera :

Make the subrule “2.1.3 Voting Events” into a Dynastic Rule, retaining all of its current subrules. Place the Rule “Voting Events” in the Ruleset directly after the Rule “Social Structure.”

Move the Rule “Confrontation” to directly after the Rule “Voting Events.”

Move the Rule “Challenges” to directly after the Rule “Confrontation.”

Move the Rule “The Coup” to directly after the Rule “Challenges.”

Give the subrule of the Rule “Final Showdown” the title “Casualties.”

Make the Rule “The Final Showdown” into a subrule of the Rule “Challenges.” Make “Casualties” into a subrule of “The Final Showdown,” if it is not already.

Make a new Dynastic Rule titled “Statistics” with the following text:

These are the statistics for this Dynasty.

Move the Rule “Statistics” to directly after the Rule “Social Structure.”

Make the Rule “Fame” into a subrule of the Rule “Statistics”

Create a subrule to the Rule “Statistics” titled “Looks.”

Move the first 2 sentences of the Rule “Exercise Regime” so that they are the text of the subrule “Looks.” (these sentences will no longer be a part of the Rule “Exercise Regime”)

Create a subrule to the “Looks” titled “Outshined.”

Move the sentence “Whenever two or more Contestants have their Fame increased at the same time, if exactly one of those Contestants has more Looks than each other of those Contestants, that Contestant receives 1 extra Fame.” so that it is the text of “Outshined.”

Move “My face is up here” and “Come here for a second” so that they are subrules of “Looks.”

Make the Rule “Hands off” into a subrule of “In or Out?”

Move the Rule “Luck” so that it is a subrule of “Statistics.”

Move the Rule “Putting Luck to Good Use” so that it is a subrule of “Luck.”

Move the Rule “Hats” so that it is a subrule of “Statistics.” Move “Hat List” and “Bare Head” so that they are subrules of “Hats,” if they are not already.

Move the Rule “Coloured Hats” so that it is a subrule of “Hats.”

Make “Taking Over the Controls” into a Dynastic Rule and move it to directly after the Rule “Bathing.”

Move the Rule “Looks Like Fame Is Good For Something” so that it is a subrule of “Fame.”

Move the Rule “Running the Late Night Circuit” to directly after “Taking Over the Controls.”

Move the Rule “Rewards” so that it is a subrule of “Challenges.”

Move the Rule “Prize Fund” so that it is a subrule of “The Coup.”

Change the title of “The Coup” to “Victory Conditions.” (for clarity’s sake)

Move the Rule “Go Fish” to directly after the Rule “The Bunker.”

Move the Rule “Hell’s Kitchen” to directly after the Rule “Go Fish.”

Move the Rule “Bathing” to directly after the Rule “Hell’s Kitchen.”

Move the Rule “Exercise Regime” to directly after the Rule “Bathing.”

Move the Rule “Deep Sleep” to directly after the Rule “Dear Diary.”

Move the Rule “Blognomican Hat Dance” to directly after the Rule “Picking Fruit.”

Repeal the subrule of Voting Events titled “Final Showdown,” as it has no effect (and we already have another rule

with that name).

You can see what the revised Ruleset would look like here: http://blognomic.com/wiki/index.php?title=User_talk:Qwazukee

Note that this Proposal has no effect on the Gamestate: it is simply a reorganization of the Ruleset. It makes the Ruleset a whole lot prettier, which is why I spent the time to do this. Also, it doesn’t change any of the rules, besides creating a new one called Statistics which is a catch-all for stats. It also changes some titles for clarity, and removes one subrule (read the last line of the Proposal) because it does nothing.

Note that the Rules at the end are ordered by what room they take place in (paralleling the list of rooms), with the Rule for Outsiders at the end. It’s neat, crisp, clean, and looks highly professional: just what Blognomic deserves.

Thank you, yuri.

I spent hours on this baby, so please check out the new Ruleset organization and see if you like it. There is no scam, I promise. It is a very careful grooming of our current Ruleset to be more accesible; I think that, for example, comex will have a much easier time understanding it than the current Ruleset format.

against the game is almost over. I dont see the point. Sorry

I’ve seen it, and very much prefer it to the previous version. I was having such a hard time finding certain rules in the current ruleset, so this will help tremendously.

It will look real nice for people reading the Dynastic Histories that are interested in the Ruleset. A lot of the old Rulesets out there are practically nonsense to casual readers; the goal is to make this one easily accesible.

@Clucky. There’s no point not doing it.

I personally think it gives a better picture of how the dynasty evolved over time, but that’s just my opinion

for I don’t mind neat but if the game does end soon the winner gets to pick if this goes to time out or insta vetos.

Needs to wait an extra 28 hours, 22 minutes, and 42 seconds past the normal 48 hours.

Make it an additional 41 hours or one more FOR and we’ll be good.
