Proposal: Scams Inbound

Timed out. Passes 3-1—Clucky

Create a rule called “Scam Rating” with a Persistence value of 1. This rule has the text:

A Maestro Team Member may choose to perform an action as a Scammed Action. To do so, they must do the following:
-They choose an action in a rule which is Intangible for them.
-They increase their Paradox by the difference between the Variance of their Focus and the Persistence of the rule that the action belongs to.
-They perform the action, and the rule is not considered to be Intangible for the duration of this action.

If an action would not be eligible to be performed even if the Maestro Team Member had a high enough Variance on their Focus (whether due to unpaid costs or otherwise), then they are not able to perform the action as a Scammed Action.
A Maestro Team Member is only able to perform Scammed Actions a number of times per week less than or equal to their Inclination for Scams as defined in their SCP rating. This limit is considered collectively between all actions that they perform as a Scammed Action, rather than being a per-action limit.


It’s about time we give a use to the scam rating too.
