Proposal: May Day

Reached quorum 5 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 16 Jan 2017 09:19:13 UTC

If any Villager has more than three Remedies, remove all but three of those Remedies.

Replace “Each Villager may carry up to three Remedies, listed in the GNDT, and may carry more than one of the same Remedy.” with:-

Each Villager carries between zero and three Remedies, listed in the GNDT, and a Villager may carry more than one of the same Remedy.

Replace “Each Villager may exhibit one or more Symptoms” with:-

Each Villager exhibits zero or more Symptoms

Each Villager’s Symptoms shall then be set to include every Symptom they have gained at any point during the dynasty so far.

Replace “Each Remedy may Cure one Disease and/or Cause one Disease” with:-

Each Remedy has the potential to Cure one Disease and the potential to Cause one Disease

Replace “When a Villager starts or ceases to exhibit a non-Visible Symptom, the Doctor must privately inform them of this fact.” with:-

When the Doctor tracks that a Villager has started or ceased to exhibit a non-Visible Symptom, the Doctor must privately inform that Villager of this fact.

Reproposal of the clearing up of the “mays” that aren’t intended as statements of permission. Also making the Doctor’s “must” apply only to the data that he is actually tracking, in case this comes up again.

against No.

I don’t have a good reason why, I just like having all of this Well Water.

Even though I am still excited to see what can be done with a bunch of water.

Oof, alright, giving it a better read there is a big one here:

“Each Villager’s Symptoms shall then be set to include every Symptom they have gained at any point during the dynasty so far.”

If anyone has gained Symptoms a disease, healed that disease, then lost the Symptoms, this means that they will gain them again, which might be against people’s interests, especially if it involves Symptoms related to the Black Death (because you’ll die sooner).

Unless that has never happened and the only person who could know this is you, the Doctor, in which case, thanks for revealing that info. You might’ve ruined/severely messed with the information-play experience that this whole game depends on for some people, because Remedies have already been used.

Maybe we can cure this plague homeopathically.

Hmm, I guess I should avoid explaining my thinking any more deeply here. If you want the symptom histories to play out differently, and if it looks like this proposal will enact, feel free to submit a followup with whatever instructions.
