implicit aye: Psmith (proponent), Roger (passive)
explicit aye: jwalrus, Jota, baf
Soup and Sandwiches II [Psmith]
I. A prize token shall be created with the name "The Bus Driver's
Lunchbox". Its initial location will be Zrblm. Its initial
destination will be the current location of the Magic Omnibus at the
time the token is created. Its initial value will be 0.
II. To voluntarily drop The Bus Driver's Lunchbox at its destination,
the active player must a) roll a die: the value of the token for
the purpose of awarding brownie points will be the result of this
roll; and b) choose a room by random selection from the list of
all rooms not including the one it is being dropped in. Immediately
after it has been dropped and points awarded, its value will revert
to 0, and its location will be changed to the chosen room.
III. The size (in sides) of the die to be used to determine the value of
The Bus Driver's Lunchbox will be associated with that token. This
size will initially be 18. After each time it's rolled, its size will
be set to the size of the next smaller available die. If no such
smaller die is available, the token will cease to exist.
IV. If at any time the destination of The Bus Driver's Lunchbox and the
location of the Magic Omnibus are not the same room, the
destination of The Bus Driver's Lunchbox will immediately be set
equal to the location of the Magic Omnibus.
There shall exist a room on the map named Brigadoon.
Brigadoon shall be connected to other rooms as normal for the duration
of every Tuesday, between midnight GMT and the next midnight GMT. At
any other time, it shall be considered not to be connected to any other
