Proposal: Pea Pole

Failed, 9-1. Josh

Create a new rule called “People”:

Islands can have People, tracked on the Great Sea wikipage and default to having none. An Island can, if they have no People, make an Arrival as an Optional Action. Doing so lets them gain a Person with a random Occupation and Race.

A Person has an Occupation, a Race and a Name. A Person’s Occupation can be Infant, Clockmaster or Sailor. A Person’s Race can be Merfolk, Scyphozoan or Dwarf. A Person’s name defaults to “Unnamed” and can be a string up to 20 alphabetical characters in length. Gaia can change the name of a Person at any time.

An Island with a Clockmaster can Timengineer, as an Optional Action and once per turn per Clockmaster they have. Doing so lets them increase or decrease the Turn Timer of another Island with a positive Turn Timer value by up to 25.

Scyphozoa = Jellyfish. I like the idea of jellyfish people.

Something about this has a scam aroma. Are you going to try to register your human as a player?

Human removed as a race. We’ve all evolved into other things.
