Proposal: The Circle of Liiife

Passes 8-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 15 Sep 2020 21:08:47 UTC

Add a new rule titled Life:

DELAY: Each Island has a score called Life, which is an that is tracked on the Great Sea page of the wiki and defaults to 0. An island with a negative life score is Dying.

As a mandatory action, once per turn, each Island must Nourish Life, increasing their Life by an amount equal to their Foliage score.


Adding a currency resource that is produced by life inhabiting the island, such as foliage and any future fauna.This can eventually be used for the purchasing of new dice/dice faces.

unfortunately I believe this is currently busted with how the delay rule works. Only the first paragraph will be delayed. You probably want to title the whole rule “DELAY: Life”

Granted card also seemed to think “DELAY: at the start of the rule invalidates the whole rule” might want to rework how delay rule works so its more in line with people’s expectations

From the Delayed Rules rule:

“Any rule that begins with the text “DELAY:” is considered to be a Delayed Rule. The contents of a Delayed Rule are all flavour text. Additionally, if the line of a dynastic rule begins with the text “DELAY:” that line is also considered to be flavour text.”

The way I’m reading this, is that my rule begins with the text “DELAY:”, therefore the entire thing is a delayed rule. The above quote doesn’t say anything about the title at all.

That’s how I’m reading it as well.

imperial Now that we’re testing it out, I’m not sure about the idea that whole data-tracking rules could switch on like this: that the player taking the action has to update the Great Sea page to include a Life column feels like we’re overloading the Turns.

@Kevan: aren’t we overloading generating time, not a Turn?

You’re right, I thought Generating Time sometimes became a Mandatory Action, but that’s Starting the Second Age. It’s still a simple-looking action that we’re all expected to be able to jump in and take, though.

Hrm, when I wrote the rule I was assuming the rule name had to begin with “DELAY:” but I might’ve wrote it wrong
