- (Weed - Rule 90)
A player can smoke weed. Weed is illegal and smoking it earns the
player 3B points except in Adelia and Cambar where there is no penalty.
The effects of smoking weed are determined by a d6 roll: 1-3 the player is
affected by "the munchies", 4-5 the player is "stoned", 6 the player
achieves angarook for 10 proposals.
A player affected by the munchies can make no other proposals until they
have had a proposal accepted where they have bought and consumed food. A
player who is stoned may not make any proposals until 5 proposals have
been accepted, they then gain one H point.
- (Having a Party - Rule 94)
Players can decide to hold Parties in order to increase the
general level of happiness and merriment in Your Wonderful Empire! In
order to hold a Party, the player holding the party(hereafter referred to
as "The Host") must be in a City Location. It costs 5 A to Host a party,
and invitations will be sent out to everyone in the Empire(this will be
published in the proposal list). The Party will last for one Night and
begin at the next Sunset after the Invitation is published. The Host may
not move from the Party Location until the Party is over. A player who
wishes to attend the Party, hereafter referred to as a Guest, may do so
simply by moving to the location and paying 1A. Guests may join the Party
at any time, if they join before the official starting time they will
simply wait for the Party to start, performing no other movements until
it does. For every Guest who joins the party in excess of 2, the Host
gains 1P. Guests at a party receive Food and Drink. They will also
receive 1 J Point (for Jollity). They may leave at any time, but anyone
left at the end of a Party will gain 1P and be Drunk, including the Host.
- (Alien Object Guidelines - Rule 96)
Any objects from another world which have an immediate and obvious use
in this may be used freely. Any objects which have a use but do not seem
to apply in this Empire may be declared useless by the Emperor during the
stay, or may be assigned appropriate powers.
Any objects deemed unbalancing to the game by the Emperor shall be
confiscated from the visitor on entering the Empire and returned to them
as they leave.
- (Banquet Time - Rule 137)
The Lord of a City, while in the City which he rules, may
declare that he is holding a Banquet. This is treated the same as
holding a Party, with the following differences: first, instead of
paying 5A, the Lord Host furnishes 10 points (which may be of any
type) which are distributed randomly to Guests at the Banquet as
door prizes, one point to each attendee (excess points at the end
of the Banquet are lost; if more attendees arrive than points are
available, the later attendees receive no door prize). During the
Banquet, the Lord Host may nominate one Guest to be the Guest of Honour.
If the Guest of Honour then makes a Speech, he becomes Well Known
in that City and receives 3P.
- (Strength - Rule 146)
In order to carry large numbers of objects around, one must be
very Strong. G and K points count as material objects for the purposes of
this rule. A player may only carry as many objects as three times his S
points. Should a player at any time hold more objects than he can legally
carry, they will be dropped one at a time until he is no longer
overweight, starting with the last object listed in his score. Anything
not listed in the score, such as a Cactarian Imperial, is considered to
be weightless and therefore exempt from this rule. Dropped objects are
promptly recovered by scavengers and thieves and disappear from the game
permanently. Currently overweight players have 20 Proposals to do
something about either their Strength or their load before this rule
takes effect(just to be fair).
