Proposal: Season’s Greetings

Reached quorum 8 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan. The Season defaults to Autumn.

Adminned at 23 Feb 2015 11:27:50 UTC

Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled The Almanac, as follows:

At any time, a Season will be in effect. There are four possible Seasons, as listed below:

  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Autumn / Fall
  • Winter

At 11.59pm UTC on each Sunday, the Season progresses, changing to the Season listed immediately below the current Season in the list above (or returning to Spring if the current Season is Winter).

Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Horoscopes, with text as follows:

Each Townsperson has a Birth Sign, which is tracked in the GNDT. A Birth Sign is made up three elements, which are drawn from the following list:

  1. The Eel
  2. The Bee
  3. The Toad
  4. The Crossed Swords
  5. The Greater Triangle
  6. The Parapet

At any time, any Townsperson who does not have a Birth Sign may allocate themselves one by rolling 3 DICE6 in the GNDT, and applying the results in the order that they are rolled in the GNDT to the numbered list in this rule.

Follow on to this will be: each season will have a horoscope, and the placement of each Sign within the Birth Sign will determine how they interact. Horoscopes will spell out the requirements of each Townsperson to flourish during the Season, and yes, I will probably make use of Kevan’s suggestion and make it real-world in some way.

I tweaked undefined starting values a little while ago; if it’s not a number of a text string, it now defaults to “the alphabetically earliest legal text string it may take” - so “Autumn / Fall”.

Was about to propose winter as our start too lol. Thanks for the point out. Now if only I could edit the wiki I’d finish the AA clean up.

[Darknight] I’ve tried setting up another wiki account for you as Darknight2 (it won’t let me reuse the name from my first attempt to set it up), using the AOL email address currently listed in your profile. If that’s definitely your current address and the signup email isn’t being spam-filtered by AOL, let me know and I’ll just create it with no email address and email you the password.

Still no go kev.  I scan my spam folder with focus just in case any emails I need get sent there, (and I have caught it sending emails to it that it had let through only mins earlier) so that might be the best bet.

Aaaand totally forget how to edit the wiki in such a major way. So not gonna risk breaking things to migrate the last ruleset around.

If this passes, someone better make a rule about Moon phases.
