Proposal: Punk-Neo-Mutually Assured Destruction

Reached quorum 9 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 10 Oct 2021 10:43:42 UTC

Add a new rule as a subrule to the rule Floors, called Security:

The notorious Punk-Neo-mutualist insurrectionist Katelyn Dubose has entered the building with the rest of her revolutionary cell, with a view towards securing it for herself.

Katelyn Dubose is an entity who has a location and an inventory, both of which are tracked as if she was a Citizen, and may have a Doppelganger. Whenever a proposal causes Time to Advance, Katelyn Dubose moves into the bottommost floor of the Zone directly above the Zone she was inhabiting immediately before that Proposal was enacted. She leaves members of her Cell in every Floor that she has previously occupied; the presence of Punk-Neo-mutualists is tracked in the same way as Copbot Swarms.

Katelyn Dubose and her Punk-Neo-mutualists cannot exist in the same location as a Copbot Swarm. If Katelyn Dubose would move into a Zone that contains a Copbot Swarm without an EMP Grenade in her inventory, she instead does not, and gains an EMP Grenade. If Katelyn Dubose would move into a Zone that contains a Copbot Swarm with an EMP Grenade in her inventory then she moves into that Zone and the Copbot Swarm in that Zone is destroyed. If a Copbot Swarm would be added to a Zone that contains Punk-Neo-mutualists then both the Copbot and the Punk-Neo-mutualists in that location are destroyed.

Any Citizen that occupies or moves into any Zone (other than those represented by the rules Infirmary or Earthlink) containing Katelyn Dubose or Punk-Neo-mutualists is immediately moved to the Infirmary.

If ever Katelyn Dubose’s location is the Zone represented by the rule Earthlink then she and her Punk-Neo-mutualists attempt to invade Earth; any Citizen whose location is the same Zone and who possesses at least one Toolbox or EMP Grenade has achieved Victory.

Set Katelyn Dubose’s Location to be Floor 1. Change the Gun Rack cache to have the following outcomes:

1-50: Blaster
51-75: Taser
76-95: Smoke Grenade
96-100: EMP Grenade

Seems neat. I’d kind of like an alternative win con based on defeating Dubose. Also, this kind of means that a significant number of people can ‘win’ at the same time. At the point would it just come down to the first DoV? I’m not necessarily a fan of that.

This is just a first spaghetti strand against the wall - happy to see alternative VCs and equally happy to fine-tune this VC to make it more exclusive.

What does it mean for the Punk-Neo-mutualists to be destroyed, given that Dubose will always be an entity with a location?

(Are Katelyn and Kateryn aliases for one another?)

No! Kateryn is a typo. Thanks, will fix.

@Kevan - the Punks are essentially her residue but it’s true that it’s worded unclearly, will fix, thanks.
