Call for Judgment: Wild=free food??

Reached quorum 7 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

As Farsight was first to use the bug to spend -1 food on breeding a wild creature, he may keep his 1 food. Sustain his atomic action attempt to breed a Wild Numbat as legal, which occurred at (or nearly at) 02/07 14:57 (UTC) as recorded in the GNDT.

Dismiss and undo all other attempted actions (or atomic actions) which result in spending negative food values between that time and the time of the passing of this CfJ.

In the rule, “Creature”, change “3. spends food equal to the stock’s upkeep (unless the Whelp has the Spectral quality)” to

3. spends food equal to the stock’s upkeep (unless the Whelp has the Spectral quality or the stock’s upkeep is a negative value)

 

Hunters hunt wild game for food. Wizards, um, wiz with the food they are given.

“which result in spending negative food values between that time and the time of the passing of this CfJ.”

Nothing can result in spending negative food, because you can’t spend negative food. But it’s a bit whatever, this saves Farsight anyways.

Sure, but the argument was offered that Wild being listed as -1 could be considered as “otherwise specified” for purposes of allowing spending negatives.

Appendix: “Unless otherwise specified, only positive amounts can be spent, lost, gained, or transferred,...”

This CfJ is intended to cover all the bases, and set Farsight free (but not to legitimize any certain interpretation of those rules’ interaction).

More work on the Wild dynamics may be required.

This could be a pain to enact, but I don’t think there is another way. I’ve been avoiding making this CfJ in order to avoid triggering a free for all on food. This might prevent it.
