-No, what you're saying is "The points in my possession have increased, therefore I recieve those points," which is not the same and is not allowed.

It should be noted that Rule 154 /also/ says "A Dimension can in general have any real number as its value." Now, by your logic we can set the values of our dimensions, yes? Okay, then. I change the value of my Score, Charm, BAC, Activity, Entropy, and Style to "any real number," noting that those undefined values are within the limits set by the subsections of 154 that define those dimensions. Now, this doesn't mean that I win, but it does mean that either you didn't win either or we've got to do the SOE dance again.

I declare a State of Emergency.-
