Proposal: Workplace Safety

Reached quorum 7 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 02 Apr 2023 10:39:24 UTC

Add a new rule named “Accidents” and give it the following text:

Each Engineer has a publicly-tracked number named Accidents that defaults to 0.

In the rule “The Building”, add the following bullet as the last step of the atomic action Build:

* If Building Stability is 0 or lower, add 1 to their Accidents

It will probably be useful to track who caused a Collapse and how many times they did so.

I like this but I’m not sure about the phrasing of the first sentence—it seems like one could say “oh yes, I do have a number which I call Accidents, and specifically it is my number of Stone.” I think the more traditional “Each Engineer has a number of Accidents which is publicly tracked and which defaults to 0” would be fine.

There does seem to be a little friction lately with players writing gamestate definitions in different ways, but that seems like a good thing, really, it means that more people are actually writing proposals.

The proposed phrasing here seems fine to me.

@Brendan: In past dynasties, what I noticed was that if there wasn’t a rule that provided a way a Player or the Emperor to set a variable to specific values, it couldn’t be set. The absence of any such rules means that the variable has to take the default, since that’s the only other way the variable is set with any value at all.
