Items from Citizens
RP ENHANCEMENT PROJECT FOR ROMANUM
proposed by Ix Parthicus ἸΞΊΩΝ ΠΑΡΘΙΚΟΣ:
"I want to propose that the Tribunate adopts the motion to have the zCS [RP hud] made generally available to Romanum citizens, and puts it to the Senate for implementation and oversight."
Tribune Ruggeris moved that the proposal be adopted and Tribune Popov seconded the motion.
In support of the proposal, Ix included explanations that the zCS would allow those in Romanum to "express a more specific role visible to others which is not available in general Romanum group membership tags. It has fighting, defence, healing, health capabilities like other formats of RP huds have that are already in use by gladiators and legionnaires at the moment, but zCS has civilian applications too. It would make life in the city a little more unpredictable regards who you meet and what their intentions are." He added that another hud feature is the generation of RP money (not to be confused with linden) that has RP possibilities.
An amendment was proposed by Tribune Ruggeris and agreed to by the seconder Tribune Popov and became the substantive motion "that the Senate or Consulate (whichever appropriate) consider making available the zCS meter to citizens for the enhancement of RP, in particular its use of notional RP money, and if approved, the Meter be adopted optionally for a trial period."
After lengthy discussion of potential benefits and whether the hud should be compulsory, the amended proposal was passed by a vote of 2-1 (Tribune Lead Ras and Tribune Ruggeris AYE, Tribune Popov NAY).
Tribune Lead said that he would forward the original proposal with the amended motion of the Plebeian Assembly and an extract of the meeting's debate for the Senate's information.
