Proposal: new entry to the glossary

Add a new entry to the glossary for “Spend” reading as follows

To spend a resource tracked by a number is to lower one’s own value of that number by the cost. Unless otherwise specified, a Gladiator may not spend such that they would have a negative number of that resource afterwards.

Not strictly necessary but we’ve had this issue before; good to clear up the “spending into the negative” once and for all.

against This is already covered by “Unless otherwise specified, game variables defined to hold numeric values can hold only non-negative integers, and any action that would set those values below zero is an illegal action unless explicitly otherwise stated in the ruleset” and “Unless otherwise specified, when “X” is a number, to spend X of a numeric value “V” means to subtract X from V (i.e. replace V with V-X)”.

against Indeed. Although it does make more sense to have it as a glossary definition for “spend”.

Kevan: I thought I remember at one point it was in the spending definition.
