Proposal: Trade and Barter

Self-killed. — Quirck

Enact a new rule entitled “Trading”:

At any time that a Captain is not being attacked or engaged in battle, they may trade with any other Captain in the same Sector.  When trading, Captains may exchange any series of Resources with one another. 
Negotiations and actual exchange of Resources may be done in any manner (PMing, or out of game), but must be reflected in the GNDT.  Captains should comment these deductions or addition of Resources with the word “trade” and the Captain with whom the resources were traded.
At no time may a Captain give up any amount of Resources for free, nor may Resources be traded for anything other than Resources.

if we have resources, we should be able to trade them.  With a firepower trait, I anticipate some sort of battle system - it seems out of style to permit trading while engaged in such.  For the moment, this requires Captains to be in the same sector, but I’m open to ideas about extending this across Sectors.  Ultimately, I’m leaving the managing of resources up to people’s Honor and vigilance in watching the GNDT.

against Leaving the details up to honour and vigilance is fine to a point, but this seems to be proposing “I take all Player X’s stuff, without asking, and give them an Orange in return” as a legal trade.

against as Kevan. There needs to be a clause that says that all parties to a trade must agree to the trade before it is carried out, and that disputed trades may be reversed by a CfJ (or something along those lines).

Kevan: I see what you’re saying.  I had considered that, but I was more caught up in ‘proving’ this.  For me ‘trade’ and “negotiations” imply that both parties agree.  What you’re suggesting isn’t really a trade.

I want Deliberations back, so that way my Proposal isn’t wasted.  ...

against self-killing with dignity.  Unless someone else takes this - next time will be a bit different
