Proposal: The Dead Abides

Fails 2 votes to 5. Failed by Kevan.

In the sub-rule Death change:

A Dead Villager who is not the Doctor may not take actions defined by dynastic rules, except those in the rule “Spectral Actions”

to

A Dead Villager who is not the Doctor may not take actions defined by dynastic rules, except those in the rule “Spectral Actions” or those actions that explicitly allow the dead to perform.

New rules in Locations > Church allow the Dead to do things but Diseases > Death forbid it if not included in the Spectral Actions rule. I am hoping this prevents needing an asterisk for each Dead rule elsewhere in the Ruleset.

Not an exciting rule but a very very convenient one. I like it.  for

against There’s room for a future scam here in arguing that a rule that said “any Villager” or “all Villagers” was also referring “explicitly” to the dead ones.

Given that there’s only one action affected by this and it has everything to do with being Dead and nothing to do with being in the Church, it’d be safer to move that action from the Church rule to the Spectral Actions rule.

Do we really need to clarify the death rule?  imperial
