Call for Judgment: Regina Phalanxe

Prior enactment of the cfj overturned. Now has timed out at 6-1 and is enacted. -SingularByte

If there is a rule entitled “Living Beings” then set the Health of each Demiurge to 100 and delete all Non-Player Characters except The Guardian.

If there is a rule entitled “The Heartbeat Of Creation” then decrease by 3 the count of Beat Actions taken by the player Josh, and consider the player Josh to have taken three fewer Beat Actions in this Dynasty.

If there is a rule entitled “Fleshmancy” then reword the list item in that rule that reads “Reduce their own Health by x” to read “Spend x Health, where x is at least 2”

would josh still be in the survivor camp as a result of this or would he be moved back? as far as I can tell, it’s the former

maybe we should also move josh back to his previous location?

Doesn’t matter as moving is a free action.

I’d argue that most of this is unnecessary - if not actively counterproductive - of the DoV fails then ipso facto the creation of the phalanx and the two conquests didn’t happen (as the DoV failing appears to be contingent on them being illegal moves), so potentially this compounds the reversion, setting my Beat Actions to -3.

“Regina Phalanxe” is a pretty good joke though

@Josh You have to spend a Provision to move

I don’t think Beat Actions can be negative, because of the usual Appendix clauses. “The total number of Beat Actions undertaken by each Demiurge in the dynasty so far is publicly tracked” means that Beat Actions taken is a numeric variable, which unless otherwise stated cannot hold negative etc etc etc.

(I am glad you got the reference though)

Maybe, but it’s still unnecessary at best, and even creates a window where I can spam beat actions before having them refunded

I think I’ll vote for
It’s not entirely necessary, but it prevents someone from insisting that Josh’s rolled back actions didn’t need to be (and therefore couldn’t be) rolled back.
The heartbeats shouldn’t be scammable because the only beat actions that exist involve phalanxes (which will get wiped), and gathering food (of which there’s more than enough to go around at the moment).

CoV, now for  it. Note that this was illegally enacted at 5-1 and has been overturned due to quorum being 6 at the time of its enactment.
