Proposal: Some People Have All the Luck

Passes 10-1, 8 in favor of the secondary rule. - Qwazukee

Adminned at 12 Jun 2009 18:06:00 UTC

Add a new rule entitled “Some People Have All the Luck”:

As a weekly action, any contestant who is in the Reward Room may make a comment to the GNDT stating that they are “Getting Lucky”. They may then roll DICE3 and add the resulting number to their Luck once.

If a Quorum of Votes on this Proposal contain the phrase “Lucky Break”, then all Contestants may make one roll of DICE3 within the next 72 hours and add the result to their Luck once.

Also, change the text in the Glossary which reads “All integers, unless stated otherwise by a rule, are in base ten.” to “All numbers, unless stated otherwise by a rule, are in base ten. “

Why the overwhelming against? Is that necessary without an explanation?

1)Exploit where anyone who succeeds at a challenge stays in the reward room past failing the next challenge
2)massive Luck inflation
3)General antagonism

1) If someone really wants to stay in the Reward Room for that long, then they will miss out on being able to take other important room-specific actions (such as Exercising).

2) Despite Luck Rules having been around for, what, 2 weeks, there are only 5 total Luck between all Contestants. Does this not suggest that there should be more ways to gain Luck?

3) I do not understand why you want to be generally antagonistic.

Given that opportunities to use luck seem to come up at most once per week, DICE3 per week is way too much, as is handing out such a huge amount of Luck right off the bat

Remember that Luck is an important number in Voting Events. If Looks is the high end of where statistics should be, and Fame is the low end, then this method will put Luck right in the middle, exactly where it should be.
