Proposal: Or maybe you all like it here?

Reaches quorum, 5-0. Enacted by pokes.

Change “Story Points” to read:

Each Castaway has a number of Story Points, tracked in the GNDT as SP, and defaulting to zero. They represent your potential for book-selling fame and fortune upon your unlikely return to civilization.

When the Castaways are rescued, each Castaway with 1 or more Story Points gains a randomly selected number of Story Points, between 1 and their total, inclusive. (Some can tell it, some can’t.) Once this has happened for each Castaway, the Castaway(s) with the most Story Points has(have) achieved victory.

Create a subrule to “Story Points” named “A Ship has Arrived!”, as follows:

If all of the following conditions are concurrently met, a ship has spotted signs of the Castaways and arrived to safely rescue them:
*The Message in the Sand is completed.
*The Giant Bonfire is completed.
*The rule “The Island” has seven or more subrules.
*Today is 40 or higher.
*At least a quorum of Castaways are at The Beach.

The Weatherman may remove one of these conditions, selected at random, as a weekly action (once each week).

This subrule cannot be repealed by a Hallucinations Proposal. But just in case, when this subrule is Epiphanized, a copy of it is created under it’s parent rule, with an extra ‘!’ added to the name.

I like a nondeterministic win condition, but I am still willing to vote for alternatives later.

I figure you shouldn’t be able to hallucinate away what is merely a future possibility in the first place.
