Proposal: Winter Isn’t Coming

Self-killed and failed by Brendan.

Let Spring be the Season in effect at the time this Proposal is enacted.

Add the following sentence to the rule called “The Almanac:”

The Season currently in effect is Spring. If the previous sentence does not accurately reflect the gamestate, any Admin may replace its final word with the name of the current Season.

Create a new rule called “Summer” with the following text:

The text of this rule has no effect unless the Season in effect is Summer.

Each Villager has a Numerisma, which is a nonnegative integer defaulting to 0, tracked in the GNDT. If a Villager has not set their Numerisma during the current Summer, they may do so at any time, to any positive integer that is not the Numerisma of any other Villager.

If the Season would change from Summer to Autumn, first, each Villager is considered to have their Numerisma set to 0.

If the proposal “Ratify the Postscript” failed, replace the word “Villager” with “Crewmember” in the rule “Summer.”

Next mechanic would be doing numerology/sum-of-digits stuff with these.

Although note that the word is “Townsperson,” not “Villager.”

The rule “the season is spring” would revert the gamestate after the season progress, so instead of us being able to change it to reflect the gamestate, instead it would already reflect the gamestate, which would be stuck in spring.

Additionally, the language “each Villager is considered to have their Numerisma set to 0.” frustrates me. I want it to say “Set each Villager’s Numerisma to 0” because otherwise someone could argue that the general consensus being that the Numerisma has changed is distinct from any actual Gamestate change to the Numerisma.

So fails on multiple levels, from what I can tell.
