Call for Judgment: Recuperation between battles

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 08 Nov 2019 12:00:21 UTC

In the rule “Transformation”, the Monstrosity “Voidwalker” reads as follows:

Voidwalker: New Action: Teleporting Strike: All Adventurers whose last Battle Action was Retreat lose 50 HP.

After “Battle Action” add “in this Battle”.

Unless we are saying that Adventurers who were knocked out in the previous battle only have half the strength now. Not entirely unreasonable, but still.

Is this a good case for using a CfJ? It’s not exactly urgent, given that no Battles are taking place just yet, but I’m trying to plug a loophole rather than change the mechanics.

This isn’t a good case for a CfJ, as it’s not urgent. Unless something amazing happens, this edge case can’t occur for at least 48 hours, so a proposal could have handled it.

CfJs are a slightly chaotic influence on the proposal queue, as we don’t know when they’ll enact: if I wanted to propose a change to the Voidwalker ability right now, I’d have to bear in mind when drafting it that this CfJ could enact before or after my proposal, and write accordingly. It’s best to save CfJs for genuine emergencies.

May as well get this out of the way, though.  for
