Proposal: Mix it Up Redux

Self-killed -Darth

Amend section 2.5.1 to include the following text at the bottom:

The spell Melting Pot has “SOUP” as its Activation Sequence. Its Effect is “Choose two Target Apprentices. Targets shall have the values of their partner columns swapped. Targets’ former partners shall also have the values in THEIR partner columns swapped, so as to reflect the new partner pairs. This value change has the effect of changing Partners. This spell shall not affect the partner status of the Artisan or the Caster of this spell. This spell shall not make any Apprentice their own partner. This spell may leave one or more Apprentices without a partner.” This is a Daily Action.

OK, let’s try this again. Provides for a method for changing partners. The unstable rune as well as Daily Action status means that this shouldn’t be over-used. The fact that the Caster cannot affect their own partner status makes this, in my opinion, slightly more strategic.

As an example:

Currently Hix and Darknight are partners, as are Wakukee and OddRon.

If he had the proper runes, Josh could cast Melting Pot with Hix and Wakukee as Targets. The result would be Hix partnered with OddRon and Wakukee partnered with Darknight.

Josh could not select himself, Qwazukee, Bucky, or NoOneImportant as Targets, as that would either change his OWN partner status or the status of the Artisan.

against It’s hard to get thanks to the U rune, so it should be able to change one’s own partner.

Also, this proposal does nothing, as rules have to be referred to, to quote Rule 1.1, “by their type, entire number and name or type and name.”

Gah! Missed that. OK…

Wow. There’s a lot of self-kills today.
