Proposal: Yarr, the Spanish Main

Vetoed by Elias IX. Failed by Angry Grasshopper.

Adminned at 21 Jan 2006 12:37:48 UTC

add a new rule “Lookout” stating:

Upon entering the Crow’s Nest, a Swashbuckler or the Captain may make one DICE5 check. If the check is a four or a five, e has sighted a spanish treasure galleon and shall increase eir booty by a number of doubloons equal to double eir GPS, and all other swashbucklers (and the Captain, if e is not making the dice check) aboard shall add a number of doubloons equal to eir GPS to eir booty.

If the check is less than four, then e who made the check shall be keelhauled and lhave their GPS reduced by one.

No swashbuckler or captain may enter the Crow’s Nest with a GPS less than one, and no swashbuckler or captain shall enter the Crow’s Nest more often than once per day, blognomic time.

against Sighting a galleon doesn’t immediately cause a gain in riches. It’s only the first step in a ship raid.

Also, with an expected daily increase of 88.4 Booty to the Inquisitor, this could potentially cause inflation.

‘S a mighty good idea with the function of a lookout, but the mechanics are slightly screwy.

against Keelhauling the crew if there aren’t any ships on the horizon? That be harsh.

imperial Arr!

Good idea, needs refinement.  Nice first prop, though.

veto

Wanna know why me Roger is so Jolly? *wink wink*

Heh, this is like my first proposal, which got vetoed by the Ego Excalabur.

I’m still wary about using my veto powers.
