Proposal: The real way to flee

timed out, final vote 5-1—Yoda

In the Rule entitled “Random Encounters”, change the text:

Should a proposal by an Adventurer fail, the other Adventurers leave its author to get mugged and he loses 2DICEX gold, where X is the number of valid, counted AGAINST votes on that proposal, unless more than half the the adventures (including the dungeon master) who had their vote count as AGAINST the proposal included the phrase “Nice try though” in the comments of the proposal. In that case, the Adventurer manages to run away and escape and does not lose any gold.

to:

Should a proposal by an Adventurer fail, the other Adventurers leave its author to get mugged and he loses 2DICEX gold, where X is the number of AGAINST votes on that proposal.  If the proposal was Self-Killed, he managed to escape some of the mugging.  In this case, X is the number of AGAINST votes cast before the author’s AGAINST vote.  However, if more than half the the adventures who had their vote count as AGAINST on a failed proposal included the phrase “Nice try though” in the comments of that proposal, the other Adventurers rescue him and no gold is lost or gained from that proposal.

I could be wrong here, but its my understanding that you cannot flee without a self-kill. I dislike needing to self-kill your own proposal just to avoid punishment.

You don’t avoid punishment entirely, only what you had coming before you s/ked.  By s/king, you are avoiding the possibility of any more punishment.  Basically, what this is trying to stop is players voting against a s/ked proposal just so the author loses more money.

Right, I like that part. I dislike the “you must SK to flee” part.

How else would you flee?
