Rolling a DICE(X+Y), once for each round. The commissioner does not need to roll this in the GNDT.

with:

As an action (without limitation of time), any manager may spend $100,000 to train a player.

Beware dice scammers bearing vague wordings.

Edited to add the training part. I don’t see any gameplay or thematic reason it was random in the first place, except to enable the scam.

Vague wording is weak as fuck when it comes to scamming, I’ve found, unless you’ve got enough allies or social status that people will just default to your interpretation.

You can easily just pick the lesser evils among the multiple convincing interpretations the rules their scam depends on and destroy it like wet tissue paper. Nobody can tell the difference if you’re just acting dumb or legitimately making a case you believe in.

Vague wording favors those with social power, not scammers.

That said the proposal looks good, potential green tick.

I like it, but I think that the randomness in the training section makes some sense.
