Proposal: Survey Says

Times out 4-0. Enacted by Brendan.

If the rule “Surveys” exists, reword it to the following (otherwise enact the following as a new rule, “Surveys”):-

A Constituency may have one or more of the following Aspects, tracked in the Key on the Auld Anchorage wiki page. (By default, a Constituency has no Aspects.) Each Aspect has a Bonus, listed in brackets, and some requirements:

  • Diverse (+1 Staff) Requires at least two blocks supporting each of the four Parties.
  • Unified (+2 Staff) Requires at least eight blocks supporting a single Party, and at most two blocks not supporting that Party.
  • Content (+1 Staff) Requires the Councillor who represents the Constituency to be part of a Party, and the Constituency to Support that same Party.

As a daily action which is also an Atomic Action, a Councillor may perform a Survey. That action consists of checking each Constituency in alphabetical order: if the checked Constituency lacks any Aspects which it meets the requirements for, it gains those Aspects (and the Councillor representing it gains those Aspects’ Bonuses); then, if it has any Aspects it does not meet the requirements of, it loses those Aspects (and the Councillor representing it loses those Aspects’ Bonuses).

If Staff lost through this rule would cause a Councillor to have more Ready Staff than their maximum Staff, their number of Ready Staff is set to the same number as their maximum Staff. Otherwise, their number of Ready Staff is unaffected by these losses. Staff loss by means of this rule cannot cause a Councillor to have fewer than three Staff.

If the phrase “If a Councillor becomes Popular, their Staff increases by 1” does not exist in the ruleset, then remove the “Content” bullet point from the list in the rule created above. If the phrase does exist, remove the last two paragraphs of “Party Lines” instead.

Reframing Surveys as an Atomic Action, making them a bit easier to read and add to, and rolling in the “Popular” stat as “Content” (if its proposal passes).

Ah, whoops, “An Atomic Action is a series of steps, defined in the Ruleset as a numbered list.” I can tweak that though.
