Proposal: Werewolf orthodoxy

Timed out and passed, 4-3. Josh

Flush the Marks.

In the rule entitled Command Roles, change the text “The valid Command Roles are Pilot, Doctor, Mediator, and Stim Dealer” so that it reads “The valid Command Roles are Pilot, Doctor, Mediator, Diplomat and Stim Dealer”.

Add the following as the second-to-last paragraph of the same rule:

If the Diplomat’s Condition is due to Worsen then their condition instead does not Worsen.

Add the following to the list of subroutines in the rule entitled “Subroutines”:

ASUM - Threshold: 8 OI. The subject of this subroutine is immediately given the Command Role of Diplomat. Any other Crewmembers with a Command Role of Diplomat loose their Command Role.

Note that this does not affect any mechanic that would set a specific condition, like a Trial or the effect of a phaser.

If you don’t know what a game term means, just open up the ruleset and search for that word: “The total number of Dynastic Rules (excluding Subrules) is referred to as the Ship Computer’s Organisation Index (or OI).” and Subroutines are only accepted by the Computer if “the Threshold of that Subroutine is less than or equal to the OI”.

Sometimes rules can be written in a backward, piecemeal way and a term ends up being defined after it’s first mentioned, but it’s all in there.

Easily and anonymously remove people from command roles?  against  against  against

meh, the rules confuse me. Thanks Kevan.

Bucky, are players not allowed to have multiple Command Roles per “Some Crewmembers have a Command Role”? In that case, the ASUM subroutine would have no effect, right? How does this remove anyone from any Command Role other than Diplomat, which nobody has yet anyway?

That is an interpretation I missed, but per ayesdeeef, I suspect that the rules wouldn’t resolve that way in practice. Could probably use a patch for explicitness’ sake, though.

for Brendan, I had asked this question earlier, but I don’t remember where or to whom, so I don’t know if it got answered. For some reason when I tried command f (which Kevan just recommended to me) earlier I didn’t find it but now with the whole sentence Kevan gave me I see and understand. I think I’m really lazy when it comes to reading rulestext compared to the other players lol
