Proposal: Some Stories Are Better Than None

Popular, 3-1. Enacted by JonathanDark.

Copy the section “Low-Player Mode” from the Building Blocks wiki page to the Building Blocks rule in the ruleset..

We’re close to going into Dormancy mode, but I think we can still have a viable dynasty if we wind up dropping down to 3 Storytellers and the Publisher, so let’s make sure we don’t go into Dormancy mode before it happens.

For what it’s worth as an idle player, I’d consider joining a genuinely Dormant dynasty to help it out, but would leave a Low-Player Mode one alone. Dormancy is very clearly signalling that a dynasty needs and wants more players to work, while Low-Player Mode is saying that it doesn’t.

I worry the dynastic isn’t going to work very well in low player mode.

With only three active players, the voting process on fragments would start to break down.

I see all of those points. I’ll remove myself from the quorum after the edit window and leave it up to the Storytellers to decide if they want to pause the dynasty or not if someone else drops out. I just wanted to raise the issue since we’re that close to it.

After thinking about it, I agree that voting on only 2 other Fragments seems odd, and I would like to encourage more people to join this dynasty if we need to.

To get the game out of hiatus

Proposals can’t be resolved during hiatus as far as I know.

That’s correct

Yeah but like, it would allow someone to join and then pass this and then go office again if they really want

JonathanDark: Publisher he/him

Sure, but didn’t you have the worry that this dynasty won’t work well in low-player mode?

Bad luck that hiatus came before this proposal’s resolution.  for
