[s-b] Proposal: The Plague

There exists a Ministry known as the Ministry of Health. The Minister of
Public Health, also known as the Physician, or as Bones, is responsible for
maintaining a Public Display of all Plagued Game Objects, making all random
selections called for in this Rule using nomic.net's dice server, and
announcing the results to the Public Forum.

Plagued is a Property with a Scope of all Game Objects and a default value
of False. Game Objects with the Plagued Property may be said to be Plagued.

Virulence is an Attribute with a Scope of all Plagued Game Objects, a Range
of all positive integers, and a default value of 2.

At the start of nday 1, each Plagued Game Object has a percent probability
of being destroyed (ie ceasing to exist) equal to the square of (its
Virulence + 2).

Then, for every Game Object that was Plagued at the start of the nweek (even
those which have just been destroyed by this Rule), a number of randomly
selected non-Plagued Game Objects, equal to the square of each Plagued Game
Object's Virulence, become Plagued. In addition, 10 more randomly selected
Game Objects become Plagued.

At any time, any Player may remove any specified Game Object's Plagued
Property by destroying 50 macks.
