Proposal: Setting up shop

Times out 5-0 and is enacted -SingularByte

In the rule Locations, reword the Description of Waterlogged Shops to:

In the ruins of once a prosperous city, drowned shops sit broken and littered with debris. Even after an initial onrush of survivors stripped the shelves bare, there are still scant morsels here to be found. A survivor searches dutifully day and night to find more.

Append the following to the Waterlogged Shop’s Location Rules text:

There are three publicly tracked values called the “Drop-off dates”, which are each of specific hours of specific dates. No Drop-off date occurs between the same two adjacent Heartbeats of Creation as any other Drop-off date (where adjacency refers to one heartbeat being the very next one to occur after a previous one). When one of the drop-off dates currently refers to a time which is now in the past, as an atomic action any Demiurge in the Waterlogged Shops may:
* Remove that drop-off date from the list and randomly generate a new replacement date and hour. This date and hour must occur between the first two adjacent Heartbeats of Creation that will occur in the future that have no drop-off dates between them.
* Generate a random number between 1 and the total number of Demiurges. Add that number to the tins of food value.

When this is enacted, set the 3 drop-off date values to be Saturday 25th June 07:00 UTC, Wednesday 29th June 05:00 UTC, Sunday 3rd July 10:00 UTC.

This is closer to how I imagined the shop - a guaranteed source of food which has too little supply for everyone. Somewhat thematically, the only way to be sure it’s worth travelling to is to have someone camping out in the shops. The first 3 dates have been randomly generated already in the dice roller according to the criteria I laid out; it’s just bad luck that they’re all basically the same time of day.
