Amend The Island, changing

  A sweeping expanse of flat, pale sand, broken up by jagged black rocks on the southern side. A small campfire has been built from a few shattered planks and spars of The Windfall.

  If a Castaway is at the Beach and has an HSR above 5, they may rest at the campfire and set their HSR to 5, at any time.

  If a Castaway has no location such that are at that location, any Castaway or the Weatherman may add them to the list of Castaways who are at the beach.

  If a Castaway is at the Beach and has an HSR above 5, they may rest at the campfire and set their HSR to 5, at any time.

A more permanent solution to the problem of unidling or new players.

Even now, bodies wash ashore.

“If a Castaway has no location such that are at that location…” This sentence is a little confusing?

[Farsight] Agreed. Kevan on slack said “I thought separate lists might be fun for becoming contradictory through hallucinations, and requiring resolution: if the rules say that we believe Pokes to be at the Beach and also that Pokes is in the Cave, we can have a mechanic to collapse that in some way.” and I wanted to make sure this was robust-ish against people being in multiple lists. I think ideally a future proposal could make the language for talking about people being “at” locations more precise and amend this to use whatever terminology makes sense?

Like for instance, I thought about writing “if a Castaway is not at any location”, but one could read that as “Ah, well I’m not at the Beach, the Beach is a location, so I’ll add myself to the list of Castaways at the beach”.

for The above sentence is confusing, but a “they” can be added later.

How about, “is at no location” for a simple fix later?
