Proposal: Trying to bugfix before the cheese melt thru the reality hole 2.0

wd, chiiika.

Adds the following phrase after “Each Mindjacker has a Level, which is a publicly-tracked non-negative integer defaulting to 1.” at Levels of Reality;

Each Mindjacker has a Suspicion, which is a publicly tracked non-negative integer that defaults to 0.

Remove the phrase “Each Mindjacker has a Suspicion, which is a publicly tracked non-negative integer that defaults to 0.” from Reality Enforcers.

Just to check: if “Each Mindjacker has a Suspicion” is only on Tier 2, does that mean that Mindjackers on Tier 1 do not have a Suspicion? So in the gamestate there will be these variables fluctuating in and out of existence for Mindjackers, where some Mindjackers have them and others don’t.

Maybe that is what’s desired, but I wanted to see if that’s how others are reading this.

Yes, that’s my interpretation; Level 1 Mindjackers have no defined Suspicion value, but their Suspicion becomes 1 when they leave level 1.

against Ok, so it’s not a bug, it’s a feature. Seems appropriate for alternate realities.

for Better to have the variable for everyone I believe. Otherwise what will “When a Mindjacker’s Level is decreased, their Suspicion is set to 0.” will do to a Mindjacker whose Level decreases to 1?

[summai] The variable would be removed from that Mindjacker, so “their Suspicion is set to 0” would have no effect since it doesn’t exist for them.

[JonathanDark] That’s a good point. However I don’t see the harm in having it defined for everyone
