Timed out 2 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Add a new rule, “The Doctor’s Rounds”:-

As a daily and atomic action which may only be taken on Mondays and Thursdays, the Doctor may make his Rounds by taking the following actions in sequence (with all random decisions and chances being secretly random):-

  • Making any Villager who has not yet been Inspected during this dynasty Inspected: when a Villager becomes Inspected, they have a 10% chance of catching a random Disease.
  • For each Disease a Villager has which they do not already exhibit all the Symptoms of, tossing a coin: on heads, that Villager gains the earliest Symptom of that Disease which they do not already exhibit.
  • For each Villager with a Contagious disease, giving that Disease to every Villager who is Near to that Villager.
  • For each Symptom exhibited by a Villager which does not belong to any Disease that Villager has, removing that Symptom from that Villager.
  • For each Remedy which has never been Tested, Testing it.
  • Making a blog post announcing that the Doctor has made his Rounds.

Delete the final paragraph of “Diseases” and the final paragraph of “Symptoms”.

In “Remedies”, replace “If a Remedy has never been Tested, the Doctor may Test it and announce in a blog post that he has done so: upon doing this,” with:-

When a Remedy is Tested

Putting all of the Doctor’s duties into a single atomic action.

(Commenting here since legally I’m not allowed to “respond” to after 48 hours: I wasn’t able to respond to this at all, as Matt and Zarathustra had different Locations throughout the 24-to-48-hour window, so nothing happened.)
