Okay, I submit the follwoing three proposals:


First of all, a faster means of movement:
__Run, Run, As Fast As You Can!__

I don't think grid movement has to happen more often... This isn't meant to be a fast-paced game... Moving farther is okay though. I'm cool with that. I'll prolly circumvent vehicles if you're playing football though. (Because running to the endzone is easy if you can move seven units at a time :)

You should also specify *how* your movement should be allowed to occur. Refer to Rob's reply to my original Football proposal.


Secondly, something to do with the masses of Gremlins on the Grid:
__Let's Get Ready To GREMBALL!!!!__

The more I read it, the less I like GremBall and this proposal. My football proposal was created as a *reasonable* diversion... I don't want it to take up more emails than the main part of the game. The Grid is cool and all, but we're here to play Nomic. We shouldn't be *trying* to make the volume of emails and the work for the admin greater...

Append to rule 301 the sentence 'The distance between two squares is the
square root of (the difference in x-values of the squares squared plus the
difference in y-values of the squares squared)'

You should put this in a proposal on it's own. It's a good part of this proposal, and I'd like to see it in the rules.

__Hungry Hungry Hippos__
__The Game__

If a player who is holding a Gremlin is Eaten by a Hippo, e and all players
on eir team gain 2 points, and e loses possession of that Gremlin before
being teleported by the Hippo.

So the point of the game is to get eaten by hippos?

You should do something to make sure that players on the roster don't have to play the game. Currently everyone is playing GremBall. What if I don't want to?


Don't we have enough of these sorts of things???? Really now....


And finally, back from the Grave, Administrative Abilities!
__Broadening Horizons__

This sounds good to me.
