Protosal: Fanboying

Create a subrule to rule 2.5.1 “Tour”, named “Attending a Tour”, which contains the following text:

Any musician may Attend a Tour by posting a comment to it that contains the arrow icon and the name of the musician they respect at the moment. If a musician X, that was part of the Tour, gains or loses Fame as a result of the Tour, then any musician who Attended the Tour and was respecting X gains or loses as much Fame as X.
A musician may not attend the same Tour twice.
A musician may not attend a Tour that is not pending.
A band member may not attend a Tour.

Create a subrule to rule 2.5.2 “Jam Session”, named “Attending a Jam Session”, which contains the following text:

Any musician may Attend a Jam Session by posting a comment to it that contains the arrow icon and the name of the musician they respect at the moment. When a musician Y, who is a member of a Jam Session, is informed of the Style of musician Z as a result of the Jam Session, then any musician who attended the Jam Session and was respecting Y is informed of the style of musician Z as well.
A musician can not attend the same Jam Session twice.
A musician can not attend a Jam Session that has ended.
A musician can not attend a Jam Session if they could join the Jam Session.

Create a subrule to 2.5.3 “Cover Show”, named “Attending a Cover Show”, which contains the following text:

Any musician may Attend a Cover Show by posting a comment to it that contains the arrow icon and the name of the musician they respect at the moment. If a musician X, who is a member of the Cover Show, gains or loses Fame as a result of the Cover Show, then any musician who Attended the Cover Show and was respecting X gains or loses as much Fame as X.
A musician may not attend the same Cover Show twice.
A musician may not attend a Cover Show that is not pending.
A musician may not attend a Cover Show if they could join the Cover Show.

Reasons why this is a protosal:
1- Is it even possible, on the engine we are using, to create rule 2.5.1.1 ? How deep can we go?
2- The rewards seems huge, but I didn’t have any other ideas at the moment.
3- It’s a lot of information, so input from other players is appreciated, and will likely help this pass when it’s officially posted.

It would be more simple to give a general name to cover shows, jam sessions and tours, and then writing this rule only once.

I tried, but I didn’t know how to word it. The rewards are different depending on the kind of show (Fame or Style), and band members don’t explicitly “join” Tours, so I can’t state “A musician may not attend a Tour if they could join the Tour”. Any suggestion is welcome, though. =)

Any Musician may Attend a Show by posting a comment to it that contains the arrow icon and the name of the Musician they respect at the moment.
When a Musician X, that was part of the Show, gets information from the Frontman, or has its personal gamestate modified, as a result of the Show, then any Musician who Attended the Show and was Respecting X gets the same information and has its personal gamestate modified in the same way.

A Musician may not Attend the same Show twice.
A Musician may not Attend a Show that is not pending.
A Musician may not Attend a Show if they are part of it or can join it.

Urrh… That’s still not good, because “A Musician may not Attend the same Show twice” could be read as “A Musician may not Attend the same category of Show twice.”

” then any Musician who Attended the Show and was Respecting X gets the same information and has its personal gamestate modified in the same way.”

If X has its style changed to Techno, then any Musician who attended and was Respecting X has its style changed to Techno too.

Is that a bug or a Feature? Both Musicians now know that they have the same style, and they can work with that.

A bug.

Well, X is gonna know X’s style anyway, right? Or does he only gets “the name of a Musician who has the same style as X” without knowing what style that is?
