Proposal: To Serve Man

Timed out 4 votes to 2. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 22 Sep 2011 10:16:35 UTC

If the proposal “Hey! What’s eating you?” enacted, this proposal has no effect.

Create a new subrule of “Hunger and Tiredness”, called “Cannibalism”:-

As a daily action, a Survivor who is not Dead may Cannibalise a Dead Survivor who has fewer than three names listed in their Clues. This is done by setting the day on which they last Ate to the current date, losing 4 Sanity and adding their own name to the Clues of the Dead Survivor.

In the rule “Death”, replace ““Personal Belongings” (but not its subrules) and “Death”” with:-

“Personal Belongings” (but not its subrules), “Cannibalism” and “Death”.

And add:-

A Dead Survivor’s “Clues” field in the GNDT is used to track the names of any Survivors who have the Dead Survivor’s current condition on their conscience. It defaults to blank.

Trying a variant of Anduril’s cannibalism; anyone feeling brave enough can take a bite, if they think they can take the Sanity hit. Each corpse serves three.

against Same flavour perhaps (no pun intended) but this version completely fails to fill the useful gameplay role that Anduril’s did.

I’d like to see a resubmission of Anduril’s rule fixing only the ambiguities and rules issues.

against Yep - Sorry, but this does something very different from what I intended with the original proposal. I was careful not to penalise eating a dead Survivor with a Sanity loss, as this defies the point of eating them.

for However, losing 4 is a little bit to high.

[Blacky] It’s intended to be one less than the 5 Sanity you save by staying fed over the next five days. I considered making the cost 3, but that seemed a bit too much of a bargain.
