Proposal: The Cling and the Boom

At 1-9, cannot be enacted without CoV. -coppro

Adminned at 08 Jul 2011 23:44:23 UTC

Add a new rule to the ruleset.  Call it “Altar of Mayhem” and give it the following text:

There is an Entity, the StickyBomb Dispenser, located at E5 and represented by the Icon “IconDispnsr.png”.

A StickyBomb is a small object that a single Gladiator is attached to.  At any time, if there are no StickyBombs in existence, any Gladiator adjacent to the StickyBomb Dispenser may Pull a Bomb by making a StickyBomb Post; this is a Story Post with a title containing “(Bomb)”.  A StickyBomb post should be sticky.  That Gladiator is initially attached to the StickyBomb.

The Gladiator attached to a StickyBomb may fob it off on another Gladiator in an adjacent Square who has not previously been attached to that StickyBomb; to do so, he posts a comment to the StickyBomb Post saying so.  He ceases to be attached to the StickyBomb and the other Gladiator becomes attached to it.  At each Turn Boundary, if a single Gladiator has been continuously attached to the StickyBomb since the last Turn Boundary, the StickyBomb explodes, causing him to Die.  When a Gladiator attached to a StickyBomb Dies, the Gladiator who fobbed it off on him and the Gladiator who made the StickyBomb’s StickyBomb Post are each awarded a Frag and the StickyBomb ceases to exist; this should be noted in a comment to the StickyBomb Post.

Any Gladiator located at E5 when this proposal passes is crushed under the falling Dispenser and Dies.  Any Gladiator who Shoved him since the last time he Stepped is awarded a Frag.  Likewise, if any Gladiator has IconDispnsr.png as their Icon, the enacting admin shall assign them another Icon that is not otherwise in use.

against It’s not clear that Pulling a Bomb actually creates a StickyBomb.

Also because there can only be one at once.

against Also, the StickyBomb posts must remain stickied even after the bomb explodes.

against Per Yoda. I think that would add some unnecessary clutter.

against Love the mechanic, needs tidying.

against per Yoda and Josh, additionally: It may be that there is no unassigned Icon available the enacting admin can give to the one crushed under the falling dispenser, so that should be changed, too. (Why not just unassing his Icon, he can choose a new one himself?)

AGAINST Very nice idea though.

Ely: I do not believe that that was the correct way to vote. (Hint: Click the Icon.) ;-)
