Proposal: return 4; [Appendix]

Passes 6-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 26 Jul 2021 16:11:07 UTC

In “Random Generators” after “This value must be determined by an appropriate roll in the Dice Roller, unless otherwise specified” add ” and which value the roll result corresponds to must be reasonably inferable from the nature of the roll and any comments supplied by the Vampire Lord making the roll before or while making the roll”

Right now there is a bit of a loophole where to say, pick a room to blood frenzy, someone can roll a DICE40 get a 16 and then once they’ve seen the result go “I was going alphabetically, so that is the Crypt Entrance” or “I was going by the order on the wiki, so that is the Cliff Edge”. I think rolling the DICE40 is fine, but we should make it so that its clear prior to the roll how you’re going to interpret the roll. (to be clear, I don’t think you legally can do that under the current rules, its just something that is impossible to enforce. and this helps ensure people are being honest about their rolls)

I’m planning to vote for this, unless someone spots issues.

Because I’m interested in how the queue is flowing, and thus doing a bit of research on the issue: this has been enactable since 26 Jul 2021 07:41:54 UTC (when the previous proposal was enacted), but wasn’t enacted at the time. It’s been over 8 hours now.

It might be interesting to do an analysis of “when a proposal becomes resolvable, why?” versus “how long did the proposal take to get resolved after it became resolvable?”. Normally, I’d assume “became resolvable due to the previous proposal being resolved” to be the fastest category (because you know there’s an admin looking at proposals at the time), but it seems to be one of the slower categories in practice.
