The following three proposals have been ratified by all players. In each 
case Psmith and Jota explicitly voted aye, I implicitly voted aye by acting 
as proponent, RogerCarbol implicitly voted aye by being on the Passive 
Voters list and baf implictly voted aye by failing to cast an explicit vote 
within 72 hours. These proposals will come into effect one hour from now.

Simple Simon Met Another Pieman [jwalrus]
"The game shall contain a pieman who has a location on the map. The initial 
location of the pieman shall be Central Park."

Pieman, May I Taste Your Wares Yet Again? [jwalrus]
"If the active player's servant's location is the same as the location of 
the pieman, the player may, as an action, elect to have his servant 'buy a 
pie'. When this occurs, the player's brownie points tally shall decrease by 
twenty points and a new token shall be created with the name "a pie" and 
location equal to the active player's servant. The pieman's location shall 
then change to a room chosen by random selection by the active player from

"As an action, the active player may have their servant throw a pie at any 
player, servant or the monkey. The servant may only throw a pie if their 
location has not been voluntarily changed this turn and their location may 
not be voluntarily changed after throwing a pie. The servant must be 
carrying at least one pie in order to throw it, and the pie may only be 
thrown at a target whose location is connected to but not equal to the 
throwing servant's location. To throw the pie, the active player shall roll 
one die; if the result is an even number the pie is deemed to have hit. 
Should the pie hit, the pie is removed from the game and the target of the 
pie-throw shall immediately drop all tokens they are carrying. If the pie 
does not hit, the pie's new location becomes equal to the location of the 

As a result of the enaction of these proposals the three rules described 
will come into effect as rules 114-116 and the pieman will come into 
existence in Central Park.
