Proposal: TGI Friday

Times out / reaches quorum, 4-1. Enacted by pokes.

In “Mac’s Cave”, replace “If they have not done so in the last 72 hours, a Castaway in Mac’s Cave may take a Date Action without increasing their Date.” with:-

A Castaway in Mac’s Cave may take Date Actions as if their own Location was any Location on the Island. When performing a Date Action in this way they may choose to ignore any increase in Hunger or HSR from it.

Replacing the arbitrary 72 hour countdown with an inversion of Mac’s Epiphany effect: if you befriend Mac, you can send him to perform tasks in any other part of the Island.

So, effectively doubling your actions, because you can exert while ignoring the HSR bump? And you get to take actions anywhere? Is this Mac man actually a djinn? against

Had forgotten about Exertion, but I’m not sure it shakes out like that: if you’re “increasing [your] HSR by 1 instead of increasing [your] Date” and then “choose to ignore” the increase in HSR, doesn’t that put you back at increasing the Date, since the “instead” doesn’t happen?

Well, it isn’t very clear, but ok, I agree. Still, the ignore effect is a bit odd. Seems to be about eating fruit and changing motivation without the HSR effects? Nothing increases Hunger besides the weekly communal action, to which this doesn’t apply.

I was just going for a general “avoid bad things” bonus which later rules could use, and those were the two obvious stats. Seemed like it’d always make some sense that if you were sending Mac to do something, anything about it that would make “you” hungry or delusional would happen to him instead.

Well, if he’s eating the fruit, why would you get full?

He’s bringing some back for you. If it’s the “-1 Hunger, +1 HSR” plant, maybe he knows how to cook it to remove the hallucinogenic effect.
