Replace the text of the rule “Sailing” with

As a daily action, a Hunter may set sail on the Golden Archipelago, changing their location to an island whose distance from the island that Hunter is currently on is less than or equal to their ship’s Speed. The distance between two islands is defined as X + Y - min(X,Y)/2, rounded towards zero, where X and Y are the absolute differences between their first and second coordinate, respectively, and min(X,Y) the minimum of X and Y.

If the majority of EVCs on this Proposal contain the word “slowdown”, change all occurences of “min” to “max” and “minimum” to “maximum” in the new text of this rule.

Defining “two diagonal moves count as three moves” more precisely.

Note: So a 1x1 diagonal is distance 1+1 - 1/2, rounded to 1?

Note: Yes, that’s what I interpreted the current text as—moving diagonally costs 1, 3, 4, 6, ...

Note: assuming they meant to copy D&D distances, that is correct.

Note: Added an EVC clause for voting on this interpretation (max leads to a cost sequence 2, 3, 5, 6, ...).

I was thinking about it and I think the max option would work better maybe

for intentionally leaving out the EVC word

I have no idea what I was thinking when updating with the “slowdown” option—the correct way to do it is to replace “round down” with “round up”, this just does something else that doesn’t really make a lot of sense (and would be better named “speedup”). If that option turna out to be more popular, we’ll need a patch proposal.

Note to self: double-check maths when tired.
