Proposal: One Pair of Hands

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 11 Sep 2011 05:08:45 UTC

In the rule “Personal Belongings”, replace “Various Items may be possessed by Survivors.” with:-

A Survivor may possess between zero and three Items.

Add to the end of that paragraph:-

If a Survivor is carrying three Items and would gain another Item, then that Item is instead lost as if it had been Thrown Off Board.

Also replace “Survivors may transfer one not Uncertain Item from their own Possession to the Possession of any other Survivor, but as the result of this action no Survivor’s number of Items may exceed (3 + the number of Items owned by the Survivor(s) with least Items).” with:-

At any time, a Survivor may transfer one non-Uncertain Item from their own Possession to the Possession of any other Survivor.

Upon enactment of this Proposal, and before the above rules are changed, if any Survivor has more than three Items, then their Items beyond the first three (in the order they are listed in the GNDT field) shall be removed.

Having a flat three-item inventory limit (it looks like we’ll always have someone with an empty inventory), to reduce the advantage of being an alert stealer or a stockpiling fisherman.

for Although I don’t like the reference to the order of the GNDT field, which could be abused by anyone feeling sufficiently scoundrelly!

It just means that people get to choose what they throw. Not so unreasonable.

No, anyone can change the order of another Survivor’s Items at any time, since the order isn’t gamestate (its alteration isn’t regulated). It’s only relevant for the one-off “items beyond the first three” effect of this proposal, and maybe a little chaos wouldn’t hurt. (Worst thing I can see is people giving lots of non-food items to whoever has the Icebox, so that the Icebox is lost. Or, at least, is lost or not lost depending on the whim of the enacting admin.)
