Proposal: Stability Now Half Off!

Passes 8-0. Enacted by Brendan.

In the rule “The Building”, replace this text:

Building Stability, which is an integer that defaults to 1,000

with this text:

Building Stability, which is an integer that defaults to 500

and replace this text:

Set Building Stability to (1,000+Building Number*100)

with this text:

Set Building Stability to its default value

If this text exists, remove it:

If the result is less than half of N, roll another DICEN and use the larger of the two dice rolls as the result, otherwise use the single roll as the result.

In the subrule “Building Contents”, if two columns exist with the heading “Properties” in the table, remove the rightmost of these columns from the table. If two rows exist that contain “Rebar” in the first column of the table, remove one instance of these rows from the table.

A simplier way to make a Build a more risky venture sooner. If you are alarmed at reducing the Stability default to 500, consider that there is Focus to offset the dice roll and the Decorator to replace Empty blocks with non-Empty ones. These become a lot more valuable when the Build is risky.

Consider as well the math. Without using any rules to patch up Empty blocks and without using Focus, a default of 1000 makes the first 8 Builds completely safe, even if you had a maximum Wobble on each one. A default of 500 reduces this to the first 5 Builds in the very worst case, but I think that’s good enough to move the game along.
