Proposal: This dynasty is just stressing me out

Passes 9-0, with 2 in favor of the rider. - Qwazukee

Adminned at 02 Jul 2009 21:31:18 UTC

Create a new rule called, “Breath Deeply”:

Whenever a Proposal fails, the Admin who fails that Proposal shall increase the Stress of the author of that Proposal by 1 exactly once, due to the author being annoyed at failing. As a weekly action, a Tourist may “Count to Ten” by rolling DICE10 in the GNDT followed by a comment of “Counting…”. Then, if the result of the roll is equal to or higher than the Stress of that Tourist, the Tourist relaxes and decreases their Stress by that amount. Otherwise, the Tourist grits their teeth and fumbles but is still stressed out afterward. As long as a Tourist’s Stress is exactly zero, that Tourist is considered to be Stress Free.

If at least half the votes on this proposal contain the word “Piggybacked”, then create a new rule called “Coconuts”:

Proposals regarding coconuts cannot be voted VETO by the Tour Guide.

for I’m not going to vote for the second part, purely because the “Coconut” proposal could affect other parts of the rules or gamestate as well.

I do like the rule, and appreciate your effort of creating a themed rule. Thanks. Honestly.

against Removing Yuri’s veto power is too dangerous.

@clucky I would believe that argument if I was somehow disabling CfJs too.

I still like my way of dealing with stress…

@clucky your proposal has a serious loophole, but I’ll leave finding it as an exercise to the reader

for because you’d have to be stupid to use my method of stress reduction.

for The real loophole in Clucky’s proposal is that Cast Away was on a Pacific island.

for I’ve seen a loophole too, probably the same one arthexis saw. But I’m in a mood to exploit loopholes rather than fixing them atm.
