Call for Judgment: “Unless someone CFJs”

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Matt performed a Survey and gained the aspect of Unified for Brucetown, going from 1/3 Staff to 1/5. Matt then immediately performed an adjustment to have 3/5 Staff, adding “newly Staff are Ready unless someone CFJs.”

But the rules don’t support this interpretation; the rule offers a bonus to Staff, but nothing says that Staff are Ready by default. Indeed, Kevan and I had already gained Aspects in the previous week which increased our number of Staff without increasing our Ready Staff.

I believe that Aspect bonuses do not affect the number of Ready Staff except via the specific clause about not allowing a Councillor to have more Ready Staff than their maximum capacity. To that end:

Subtract two from Matt’s Ready Staff, to a minimum of zero, and revert any actions Matt takes that would cost more than one Staff before this CfJ passes.

Rewrite the sentence that reads “Otherwise, their number of Ready Staff is unaffected by these losses.” in the rule “Surveys” to read

Otherwise, their number of Ready Staff is unaffected by these losses or the addition of Aspect bonuses.

And possibly we should separate that stat into two columns anyway.

for This is how I was reading it. “The Ruleset and Gamestate can only be altered in manners specified by the Ruleset.” and no rule specifies that the number of Staff who are Ready is affected by the number of Staff being increased.
