Proposal: Rise and Fall

Fewer than a quorum not voting AGAINST. Failed 1-7 (with 4 DEF) by Kevan.

In the rule entitled “Lists”:


At present, each Island may have one list.


A list takes the format of ‘Name: {1,2,3…}’ where the name is a single word of flavour text, and each item is an effect or outcome on the gamestate.


A list may optionally have one or more requirements associated with it, formatted as ‘Req:[1,2,3…]’, where each item is a gamestate condition, such as “Rising” or “Land>10”. A list without a ‘Req’ section or ‘Req:[None]’ is considered to have no requirements.


As a Mandatory Action, an Island must select one of their Lists


As a Mandatory Action, an Island must select one of their Lists that they meet all requirements for


If an Island does not meet the requirements for any of their Lists (or has no Lists), they randomly select an effect from the following list instead: “Endure:{Land+0,Land+1}|Req:[None]”.

If the proposal entitled “Upheaval and Downheaval” passed:

Give each Island the following List: ‘“Sink: {Land+0,Land+0,Land+0,Land-1,Land-1,Land-2}|Req:[Falling]”

Replace all Lists named “Brown” with the following List:
“Grow: {Land+0,Land+1,Land+1,Land+1,Land+2}|Req:[Not Falling]”

First proposal, yay! Differentiating Rising and Falling states by introducing state-specific lists. Also laying the groundwork for future lists to have their own requirements based on resources or other gamestate. Since this may lead to a situation where someone can’t use any of the lists they have, I’m adding a default list as a fallback case.

imperial This makes good sense, but may be making the List markup a bit impenetrable.

against well formatted first proposal, but a bit much for me

against only because it makes it a lot harder for me to have written “Terrain Time”.

I like a lot of this but think it will be finicky to play with.  against
