Proposal: X Marks the Spot

Passed 9-0, reaches quorum. Enacted by Angry Grasshopper.

Adminned at 21 Jan 2006 12:41:52 UTC

[ Tidying up locations a bit, and using them in Adventures to track who’s where. ]

Reword Rule 2.2 (“The Ship”) to:-

The Captain and his crew ply the seas on the Inquisitor, a schooner of ninety feet, two masts, and a deck of cannon. There are several locations on or around the ship:-

  • the Captain’s Quarters - only the Captain may be in the Captain’s quarters, unless he details circumstances under which a Swashbuckler may move there
  • the Forecastle
  • the Holds
  • the Crow’s Nest
  • the Crew’s Quarters
  • the Main Deck
  • the Forecastle Deck
  • the Quarter Deck

There are also off-ship locations which may only be moved to if an Adventure is in progress that involves that specific location.

  • Ashore
  • Boarding
  • Overboard

Any Swashbuckler may change their location by updating the GNDT and posting notice on the front page. New crew start on the Main Deck.

In Rule 2.8 (“Adventures”), replace “with a level of Danger and doubloon-measured Reward of his choosing” with:-

with a level of Danger, a Location and a doubloon-measured Reward of his choosing

Replace “join this Adventure by rolling an X sided die” with:-

join this Adventure by moving to its Location and rolling an X sided die

And to the end of the third paragraph, add:-

Any Swashbucklers who had moved off-ship for the Adventure are moved back to the Main Deck.

If any crew don’t have a location set, they are moved to the Main Deck.
