Proposal: Rock on

Cannot be enacted without CoV (1-6)
Failed by Hix.

Adminned at 09 Jul 2007 07:49:19 UTC

Add a new subrule to the rule entitled “Production”.  Give it the title “Rocks” and the following text:

A corporation may, at any time, spend 2*X Rocks to target another corporation with an attack strength of X.  X must be positive.  If the number of Rocks held by the attacked corporation is less than strength of the attack, the attacked corporation loses all of eir Rocks and (A-R) cash where A is the strength of attack and R is the number of Rocks originally owned by the attacking corporation. Otherwise, the Rocks of the second corporation are reduced by attack strength of the attack. A corporation may not attack any of eir Subsidiary’s nor can a Subsidiary attack eir parent company. 

The production rights for Rocks are in the public domain.  New Corporations start with 3 Rocks.

If at least half of all comments containing counted votes also contain the text “We want violence”, replace all instances of “Rocks” in the above rule with “Guns”.  Either way, give every Corporation 3 Rocks or 3 Guns.

against Still think it’s a bad idea.

Also:
Of two typos in the original version, one remains (why would “Subsidary” gain an apostrophe when being pluralized?), and one was miscorrected (you changed “attack corporation” to “attacking corporation” rather than to “attacked corporation”).
