Proposal - Seasonal Equinoxes

Post by Lady Ether » 2013-05-08

Seasons
Current Rule:
As stated above, a country’s funds are known as its ‘Coffers.’ In general, hexes of land and mines produce income on a seasonal basis; acquiring land, construction of assets, and upkeep of assets expend income. It is the duty of the Land Marshal to record and maintain the balance sheets of each country; upon request, a country Liaison may receive a current copy of his country’s balance sheet at any time from the Land Marshal.

New Rule:
As stated above, a country’s funds are known as its ‘Coffers.’ In general, hexes of land and mines produce income on a seasonal basis; acquiring land, construction of assets, and upkeep of assets expend income. It is the duty of the Land Marshal to record and maintain the balance sheets of each country; upon request, a country Liaison may receive a current copy of his country’s balance sheet at any time from the Land Marshal. Revenue is generated twice a year, it is credited or debited from the country coffers on the Vernal (March 21) and Autumnal (September 21) seasonal equinoxes.

Rationale:
The way this is worded – the seasonal money should be occurring 4x a year (each season). This is not the way the coffers have been calculated. Instead it’s been done on the vernal/autumnal equinoxes. The original rule with the equinox language is in the 1994 rule book on page 19. This will just make it clearer in the future about when this will happen.

Cosign.... But I think it's just a missing line, dropped by a rewrite mistake and doesn't have to go to senate. Magistrate just has to say it was overlooked or dropped in rule book reorganizing.

Possibly - but it's not in any of the rule books on the website back through 2008. Since it's been gone for 5 years - might just be better to make Senate vote on it:)

A couple of quick points -

1st - this proposal only edits the first paragraph, each individual asset still has the word 'season' in it's description.

2nd - Wouldn't it be easier to insert a definition of the term 'season' (the equinox is what we currently use 3/21 and 9/21 - this is the same as was in the yellow 2004 version I have in my campout box missing, and the text is missing from the online 2008 version)?
