Proposal: Splash!

Timed out 5 votes to 3. Enacted by Kevan.

Change the second and third paragraphs of rule “Salvaging!” to:

As a weekly action, any Survivor may Attempt to Salvage an Item from the sea. To do so, they shall roll DICE4.
On 1, they find nothing and their Attempt has no other effect.
On 2 or 3, they find something. If so, they shall then roll DICE19 (page), DICE2 (column), DICE25 (row) to get the coordinates in the Floating Rubbish of the name of the Item they found. They shall then add to their possessions that Item with an Uncertain and a Damp Flag. (they may make minor changes to the form of the name if they write the original name in the GNDT comment field). If for any reason related to the status or existence of the Floating Rubbish web page the identification of exactly one found Item was not possible, they would get nothing instead.
On 4, they Rescue (i.e. add to their possessions) the Item that most recently has been Thrown Off Board of the Items that have been Thrown Off Board and have not been Rescued since they were Thrown. They shall reduce the Sanity of the last Survivor that Threw the Item they found by 1, if that Survivor exists. The Item retains all the Flags it had when it was Thrown, as well as the Number of Portions it’s worth (if pertinent), and gets a Damp Flag (If it hasn’t already one).

Add a new paragraph to rule “Personal Belongings”:

As a daily action, any Survivor may Throw an Item they own Off Board. They shall remove this Item from their Possession.

Consider these Items to have been Thrown Off Board, and when (year is always 2011):
On 5/9, a Raw Fish^2;
On 4/9, a Banana ^1;
On 3/9, a Black Candle! (the “!” shall be considered a Flag)
On 2/9, a pair of Binoculars;
On 1/9, a Green Tentacle!^2

for I cannot bring myself to vote against any proposal involving an edible green tentacle!

(As an aside, I think it shouldn’t need stating that the exclamation mark after Black Candle is a flag.)

against Not only is it a bit opaque to have untracked gamestate, it seems problematic that it’s not actually gamestate, it’s just some stuff we’re “considering”.
