Section 2 - Score

[Score is pretty old-school here: it marks progress towards the end game and provides the player with a review of significant achievements so far, as well as encouraging the player that he did the right thing at certain junctures.

Optional accomplishments are not included -- those are reserved for the achievement system -- so there are no Last Lousy Points. A player who gets to the end of the game should have the full hundred.]

The new notify score changes rule is listed instead of the notify score changes rule in the turn sequence rulebook.

This is the new notify score changes rule:

if the score is not the last notified score:

say "[first custom style]";

let diff be the score minus the last notified score;

if diff is less than 0:

let diff be 0 minus diff;

say "[bracket]Your score has gone down by [diff in words] point[s][if score is greater than diff] and is now [score in words][end if].[close bracket]";


say "[bracket]Your score has gone up by [diff in words] point[s][if score is greater than diff] and is now [score in words][end if].[close bracket]";

say "[roman type][paragraph break]";

now the last notified score is the score;
