Proposal: Putting the “Art” in Artifice

Timed out, 4-1. Josh

Create a sub-rule of “Items” called “Royal Patents,” which reads:

There exists a List of Patents, tracked on the Noblemen page of the wiki, which is a list of Items. As a Daily Action, a Nobleman may generate an Item, as per the rule “Items,” and add that Item to the List of Patents. When making an Auction Post, Louis XIV can opt to include one or more Items in the List of Patents as part of the Items to consist of the Auction; Louis XIV may change the name of the Items thus included. Those Items are then deleted from the List of Patents.

Noblemen can make Items, but this time it’s voluntary. Edit: Louis XIV reserves the right to rename any item so made.

The free-text item name problem is still an issue here - I’d rather keep the exclusive right to name things.

Aren’t names always flavour text anyway?

They are, but I think Josh wants to keep the flavor text in line with the theme of the Dynasty, for congruence’s sake. Don’t want a laser pistol for sale in the 17th century, after all.

Actually, change of vote to against for now - if Simplify the Item System enacts, the process of generating an Item includes the step of “Put the item up for auction via a story post”

This is a good solution to noblemen creating items if “Simplify the Item System” does not enact.
