Proposal: The land of suddenly a lot more plenty

Withdrawn. Failed by Brendan.

Reword the rule “The Dice Deck” to the following:

The Dice Deck is a publicly-tracked list of numbers, and is empty by default.

The Production of Resources is an atomic action with the following steps:

* If the Dice Deck contains fewer than 4 different numbers, or if it contains less than 6 numbers in total, set the list to the following list of numbers: 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11, 11 and 12.
* Remove an element at random from the Dice Deck: its number is the first result of this action
* Remove another element at random from the Dice Deck (skipping those where the number is the same as the first result): its number is the second result of this action
* Remove another element at random from the Dice Deck (skipping those where the number is the same as the first result): its number is the third result of this action
* Clear all names from the Injured list. Then, if the current Visitor is the Corsair, carry out the Corsair Landing atomic action.
* If either of the first two results of this action are a 7, set the Visitor to be the Visitor (if any) who has the third result of this action as their Fanfare, or “None” if no Visitor has the other result of this action as their Fanfare. If no results are a 7, set the Visitor to “None”. If this step results in the Visitor value changing, the Ledger is emptied.
* If the first result of this action is not a 6, 7, or 8, set the Weather to be the Weather (if any) which has the second result of this action as its Forecast, or “None” if no Weather has the second result of this action as its Forecast number. If the first result of this action is a 6, 7, or 8, set the current Weather to “None”.

If https://blognomic.com/archive/the_means_of_production was enacted, also append the following bullet point to the Production of Resources atomic action added above:

* Set all Settlers’ Ready variables to empty

Reword the second sentence of the the rule “The Gift of the Isle” to the following:

The date, time, and all results of the most recent Production of Resources are publicly tracked.

Reword the the first bullet point in the Harvesting the Crop atomic action to the following, in the rule “The Gift of the Isle”:

* For all Domains they have where the number matches any of the results from the Production of Resources, they gain an amount of the resource associated with that domain to their Stockpile equal to the Payoff for the number for that domain, defaulting to a single resource if it’s not otherwise defined.

Adding a third production die to up the speed of the game a bit. The majority of changes here are just keeping grammar consistent.

I was traveling and didn’t get a chance to comment on this during the edit period. Was it on purpose to have the third result not duplicate the first, but allowed to duplicate the second?

e.g. 4, 6, 6 would be a legal PoR under this Proposal.

Oh, woops. Not that it really matters anyways.
