Proposal: The same thing we do every vacation

Fails 1-10 yuri_dragon_17

Create a new sub-rule “Of Course” under rule “Fed-ex Delivers”:

As a weekly action, Wilson may attempt to take over the world. To so so, Wilson must make a Proposal that, if enacted, would cause Wilson to achieve victory. Each Tourist that votes on that Proposal increases their Stress by DICE5 minus 2 at the time of their voting. If a Tourist attempts to drown Wilson before the Proposal gets failed or enacted, Wilson automatically votes AGAINST that proposal.

Only the Tourist with the highest amount of Stress (or tied for the highest amount) can perform this action (attempting to take over the world) on behalf of Wilson.

against I don’t understand the reason for this rule.  Anyway, it’s arguable whether a non-Tourist can create a Proposal.

imperial I think the last sentence allows it, Shem, as per the line “that rule must determine which Tourist shall be the one that must make the appropriate gamestate changes” in “Fed-ex delivers.”

@Shem Actually, It has a very simple reason: it’s fun.

Do you know how to make the Proposal show up as created by Wilson?

against I like the idea and look forward to it being ifxed and put in, but as it stands there are some issues.  First, there is no way to make a proposal by wilson (unless we create an avvount and share his password with everyone), second is the stress of each tourist reduced by a seperate dice5 -2 or the same dice5?  Can a tourist’s street be increased by -1 by voting against wilson?

Finally, can wilson take this action if he has been previously drowned?

@amnistar: All valid concerns. Let me try to answer them.

1. Anybody (who meets the requirements) can create the proposal under their own account as long as it is clearly labeled as created by Wilson, per the 1st paragraph of rule 2.9

2. The tourist rolls DICE5, then substracts 2 from the result. Indeed, this can cause the tourists Stress to be increased by 3, 2, 1, 0 or -1

3. When Wilson is succesfully drowned, the whole rule gets replaced per the last paragraph of rule 2.9, so he stops existing altogether and this sub-rule dissapears as well.
