Proposal: Standard Procurement Procedure

Passes 7-0 (Quorum 5) after more than 12 hours -Bucky

Add a new Dynastic Rule called Material Requisition to the ruleset, and give it the following text.

As a weekly action, a Scribe may make a request for materials. A request for materials allows the requesting Scribe to gain 1 unit of any object that is tracked in the GNDT.  This is done by making a post in the GNDT with a comment of RFM while increasing the chosen statistic by 1.

Some items are undoubtably more valuable than others, but I find a reliable revenue stream for even those that haven’t made proposals a good idea. Which item a player chooses could also add more strategy in the future, though obviously it is limited to paper for now. I had originally wanted to make such a request require some sort of approval, but that probably adds more issues than flavor. I also considered making this cost paper but that would probably defeat the purpose. There might be some silliness with requesting non material things like looks and fame, but oh well.

for Most dynasties are over in a month, though, so a weekly action is just “do this four times”.

I had forgotten about typical game length when I made this. Still better than nothing, and a daily action probably would have been too much in terms of grind anyway.

I don’t think this dynasty will be typical length; it’s self-pacing. 

Also, note that ‘undefined’ resources aren’t tracked in the GNDT and therefore can’t be requested.

I was hoping we’d randomly acquire all our Paper sources, so imperial .
