Proposal: Unruliness

Fails 1-4. — Quirck

Add the following as a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Spud Gun:

As a weekly action, a Student may fire their Spud Gun.

When a Student fires their Spud Gun, they get a number of shots equal to the number of full days it has been since the Professor last made or voted on a votable matter or official post.

For each shot a Student has, they may chose a single other Student to be their target. For each target thus selected, they roll DICE6 in the GNDT. On a result of 1 or 2, the target Student gains a Bruise. Each Student’s number of Bruises is tracked in the GNDT and defaults to zero.

Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Distractions and Swots:

For each Bruise a Student has, their number of projects is considered to be one less.

At any time, provided they have more than 5 Bruises, a Student may make a comment to the GNDT saying “It’s not my fault I’m a nerd”, reduce their Bruises by 5 and increase their Projects by 1. This does not count as Scoring.

against A great trigger, but maybe a bit too much luck here, both in rolling the right dice and happening to be online just before the Professor each day. An obvious punish-the-leader mechanic also encourages final all-at-once gameplay, which can make a dynasty look unhelpfully quiet.

“Should”. If you want it to be tighter than that you should change it to “must”.
