Re: [s-b] Proposal: The Plague

Oh, and it makes more sense if I actually include this extra part about
virulence increasing by one every nweek!

I revise the Proposal entitled "The Plague" to read:

> There exists a Ministry known as the Ministry of Health. The Minister of

> 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
