Proposal: Oh, I’m a Lumbarjack, and I’m okay

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 06 Apr 2010 03:27:40 UTC

Add to the rule Tasks if it exists:

* Gather. This can only be performed by a Colonist adjacent to a Bush or small Tree. The Colonist may spend 4 Energy to add either 1 Food or 1 wood to the Colony Stockpile as indicated by a DICE2, where 1 is food and 2 is wood.

Add to the rule Locations if the Proposal Terraforming passes:

* Indoors: If a Colonist is located anywhere that is considered Indoors per the Rule 2.2 The Settlement, reduce all energy costs by 25%, rounding to the nearest integer with .5 rounding up..

If the Proposal Terraforming passes, reword the addition to the rule The Settlement from that proposal to:

A group of connected Locations enclosed by Walls, Doors and/or Rock is known as a Room. If any single Location would be in more than one Room, only the largest counts as a Room. The Location of the door of the room is not considered as in the Room.  If a Location is in a Room, that Location is Indoors. Otherwise, it is Outside.

Add to the rule Jobs if it exists:

* Gatherer. A Colonist who has performed the Gather task three times in one week may become a Gatherer. A Gatherer can gain 2 Food or 2 Wood each time they Gather instead of the usual 1 or forfeit this bonus in order to choose whether to receive Food or Wood from the Gather task rather than roll a DICE2.

Add to the rule Tasks if it exists and the Proposal Terraforming passes:

* Build Bridge Section. The Colonist may spend 8 Energy and remove 2 Rock from the stockpile to turn a Location occupied by water adjacent to his location into a Bridge.

Add to the rule Jobs if it exists and the Proposal Terraforming passes:

* Builder.  A Colonist who has built at least one Room in one week may become a Builder.  A Builder can build any Wall, Door, Channel, or Bridge Section for 20% less energy, rounding to the nearest integer with .5 rounding up..

Add a subrule to the rule The Mountain called Tree Regrowth if the proposal Terraforming passes:

Each Sunday at 00:00:00 UTC (Or the first time thereafter that the Expedition Leader is on), the Expedition Leader rolls 5DICE40 and 5DICE52 with the DICE40 indicating the row on the Map and the DICE52 indicating the Column (A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, ... , Z = 26, a = 27 ... , z = 52) and if any these coordinate pairs indicate a Location that is not occupied by any Colonist and is either a Bush or small Tree or Empty Space that Location changes to a Large Tree.

Re: Indoor energy cost reduction.  The cost should only be lowered for the Commoner in question (the one who is indoors).  Currently sounds like my being indoors reduces the cost for everyone.  It’s also vague as to where and when to reduce the cost.  I’m sure you don’t mean for it to actually modify the ruleset and reduce the cost?

Building a room is undefined.

The tree regrowth part might make more sense if it happens at 00:00:00 on Monday, so that it coincides with the start of the week.  More importantly, 5DICE40 gives the sum of 5 40-sided dice.  You want just DICE40 and DICE52 5 times each.

against Per Hix.

1. Ugh, that needs clarification, your right, which means this probably dies for that small detail.

2. It is defined in the Proposal “Terraforming”

3. True, I forgot that the start of the week was considered Monday on this site, rather than Sunday.  And I guess the difference in DICE is just me being unfamiliar with the particular command on the GNDT, as 5DICE40, to me, says 5 40-sided dice (Not added together).

for Nice :)

But I agree to most of the problems mentioned by Hix, but should be ok…

“Each Sunday at 00:00:00 UTC (Or the first time thereafter that the Expedition Leader is on), the Expedition Leader” should be something like “As a Weekly Action (if possible on Monday) the Expedition Leader should…”...

@ Dices: Ruleset: “References to “YDICEX” refer to Y X-sided dice, rolled within the GNDT.” What’s about a sum?

imperial  Gigantic proposal of doom.


05-04-2010 01:53:51 UTC

Just a heads-up, I will be out of town for 3 days, so probably little to no posting here.


05-04-2010 04:09:06 UTC

Per Hix. Will vote for a fixed version.

Keba: Putting 5DICE40 in the GNDT will get you something like 5DICE40:98, rather than 5DICE40:31/2/11/28/26. That’s just the way it’s programed.


05-04-2010 04:32:52 UTC

Just noticed: the Row roll actually needs to be one less than DICE41 since there’s a 0 Row.

A fixed version should note that the number of rows will be changing.  Perhaps a DICEX where X is 1+number_of_rows treating a result of X as a 0.
