Proposal: Random Creation Paradox

Reached quorum 8 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

In the rule “A Moment of Clarity” replace “(and Subtype, if appropriate)” with “and Subtype, if one is associated with their Location (note that this bypasses the random requirement for selecting a subtype),”

Currently there is a bit of a paradox here. In order to “Create an Item, as per the rule Items”, if you are creating a Physical item, you must randomly choose the subtype. But you also must have the subtype be whatever is associated with the location. So it would appear that a quarter of the time your creation attempt is just illegal… there are a bunch of ways we can fix this, but this felt most in the spirit of the existing rules

I would’ve preferred this as a CfJ due to the mentioned paradox, but this’ll work, I guess.  for
