Proposal: Fusion of Reagents

Add to the rule “Fusion”

As a daily action, an Atom may make any two Reagents Fuse with each other, as long as both Reagents have a Heat grater than their Mass, and the Atom making the Reagents Fuse has a Heat greater than half of the Mass of the more Massive Reagent, rounded up. When an Atom makes two Reagents Fuse, half of the Mass of the more Massive Reagent, rounded up, is subtracted from the Atom’s Heat. The older Reagent involved then gains the Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons of the other Reagent, and the Heat of the older Reagent involved becomes the difference of the sum of the Heats of both Reagents and the sum of the Masses of both Reagents, divided by 2, rounded down. The newer Reagent involved then ceases to exist.

Proposal: Heat, now with 16.6% less usage of the word ‘Mass’

Times out and passes 3-0-1. -RaichuKFM

Adminned at 16 Apr 2014 00:23:37 UTC

Add to the rule “Atomic Structure”

All Atoms have Heat, tracked in the GNDT. Heat defaults to 100. Heat cannot be negative.

Add to the rule “Ionic Bonding”

When a Bond occurs, the Heat of both of the Atoms Bonding becomes the average of their Heats, rounded down.

Add to the rule “Fusion”

When an Atom Fuses with a Reagent, the Atom’s Mass is subtracted from its Heat, and the Reagent’s Mass is subtracted from the Reagent’s Heat. The final Heat of the Fused Atom then becomes the average of its Heat and the Reagent’s Heat.

In the rule “Fusion” replace

Fusion is only possible if the Atom has a Mass greater than or equal to the Protons of the Reagent.

with

Fusion is only possible if the Atom has a Mass greater than or equal to the Protons of the Reagent, and the Heat of the Atom is greater than or equal to the Mass of the Atom.

Add to the rule “Fission”

When an Atom Decays, its Heat becomes its current Heat, divided by 2, rounded up, plus its Mass. The Heat of the Reagent created by the Decay is the Heat of the Atom from before the Decay, divided by 2, rounded down.

In the rule “Reagents” replace

The Atom Adding the Reagent shall roll 4DICE3 and subtract 8 to determine the Charge of the new Reagent.

with

The Atom Adding the Reagent shall roll 10DICE5 and add 70 to determine the Heat of the new Reagent. The Atom Adding the Reagent shall roll 4DICE3 and subtract 8 to determine the Charge of the new Reagent.

To summarize, Atoms have Heat. When Atoms interact in any way, their Heat is averaged. When an Atom Fuses, it loses Heat relative to its Mass, and when it Decays, it gets that Heat back. Atoms cannot Fuse if they don’t have enough Heat. If an Atom doesn’t have enough Heat to Fuse, they’ll have to bond with an Atom to steal some heat, or wait to Decay to get back some Heat.

Proposal: Compromise

In the rule “Idle Atoms”, replace “Admins may render themselves Idle at any time, but should make a post announcing it when they do so.” with the following phrase:

Admins may render themselves Idle at any time, but should announce it in a post or comment when they do so.

If the Proposal “Part of the Precipitate” passed, instead replace the phrase “but should make a comment announcing it when they do so.” in the Rule “Idle Atoms” with the phrase “but should announce it in a post or comment when they do so.”

This work for everyone?

A quorum of players once wanted admins to post an entire blog entry whenever they idled themselves. I think ringing a big bell for “player got bored or became too busy to play” is probably psychologically unhelpful, but here you go, consider this an announcement. I shall idle myself after posting this.

Proposal: Pun Involving Ironic and Ionic

Reaches quorum and passes 4-0. -RaichuKFM

Adminned at 11 Apr 2014 23:52:13 UTC

Add to the rule “Fission”

An Atom with 1 Proton always has a Nuclear Instability of zero.

Add a new rule “Ionic Bonding”

If two Ions are incapable of undergoing Ionization with each other and have opposite Charges, either one may Form an Ionic Bond between them. An Atom’s Ionic Bonds will be kept track of in a column of the GNDT. When a new Ionic Bond is Formed, both Atoms involved will have the name of the other Atom added to their Ionic Bonds GNDT column. An Ionic Bond always exists between two different Atoms and is two directional; if one Atom is Ionically Bonded to another, the other is Ionically Bonded to it as well. If for any reason, the Charge on either Atom changes such that the Charges of the two Ionically Bonded Atoms either are not opposite or are zero, the Ionic Bond immediately Breaks and the names of both Atoms are removed from each of their Ionic Bond GNDT columns. This is the only way an Ionic Bond can Break.

So I realized that if you have 1 proton, 0 neutrons, and 2 (or more) electrons, if you Decay, you dont lose any protons or neutrons, but you lose electrons. 1. this doesnt make sense thematically, and 2. it would create an illegal Reagent with only electrons.

Add a new rule entitled “Ionic Bonding”

If an atoms’ electronegativity is not zero, and it has been at least 12 hours since the atom last attempted to bond, the atom may bond with one or more atoms if the atom’s electronegativity is the opposite of the sum of all other atoms’ electronegativity. When atoms bond, each atom involved in the atomic bond is considered to be bonded to every other atom involved in the atomic bond. A list of atoms that an atom is bonded with is stored in the atom’s GNDT row (for non-reagent atoms), and on the atom’s entry on the wiki page “Reagents” (for reagent atoms). To bond, an atom shall declare which atoms they are attempting to bond with, and roll a diceX where X is the amount of atoms that the atom is attempting to bond with multiplied by five. If the result is one, the atoms will become bonded.

Adminned at 11 Apr 2014 02:09:33 UTC

Add to the rule “Atomic Structure”

All Atoms have a Mass equal to the sum of their Protons and Neutrons.

Add a new rule “Fusion”

As a daily action, an Atom may Fuse with a Reagent. Fusion is only possible if the Atom has a Mass greater than or equal to the Protons of the Reagent. When an Atom and Reagent Fuse, the Atom gains all of the Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons of the Reagent and the Reagent ceases to exist.

Add a new rule “Fission”

An Atom has a Nuclear Instability equal to their Protons minus their Neutrons, or 0 if the result is negative. If an Atom’s Nuclear Instability is greater than 0, the Atom is Fissionable. If it has been at least one day since any Atom has checked to see if the Fissionable Atom Decays, any Atom may check to see if the Fissionable Atom Decays. To do so, the Atom rolls DICEX where X is equal to the Fissionable Atom’s Mass. If the Result is less than or equal to the Fissionable Atom’s Nuclear Instability, they Decay. When an Atom Decays, they lose half their Protons rounded down, half their Neutrons rounded down, and half their Electrons rounded down. A new Reagent is then immediately Added with the number of Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons lost by the Decaying Atom.

In the rule “Reagents” replace

If it has been at least one day since any Atom has Added a Reagent, an Atom may Add a Reagent.

Enact a new rule, “Branching”:-

Each Atom may Branch from at most one other Atom; the name of this other Atom is tracked in the GNDT column of the Branching Atom (for non-Reagent Atoms) or the Branching Atom’s entry on the wiki page “Reagents” (for Reagent Atoms). By default, an Atom does not Branch from anything.

An Atom may be Stable, Unstable or Free. If the number of Electrons on all Atoms which Branch from an Atom (the “Core”) equal the number of Electrons that the Core has, then the Core is Stable. If the number of Electrons on all Atoms that Branch from an Atom (the “Core”) exceed the number of Electrons that the Core has, then the Core is Unstable. Otherwise it is Free.

At any time, an Atom which does not Branch from another Atom may Branch from any Free Atom.

Proposal: Overt Reagent Woman

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 09 Apr 2014 19:33:15 UTC

Add to the rule “Atomic Structure”

Electronegativity can be negative.

Create a new rule entitled “Reagents”

If it has been at least one day since any Atom has Added a Reagent, an Atom may Add a Reagent. A Reagent is an Atom that is not controlled by a human, and is an Atom for the purposes of Dynastic Rules only. Reagents do not get votes nor do they count towards quorum. A Reagent’s Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons are determined when it is Added. The Atom Adding the Reagent shall roll 8DICE5, subtract 24, and take the absolute value of the result to determine the number of Protons in the newly Added Reagent. If the result is 0 Protons, the Reagent is given 1 Proton instead. The Reagent has a number of Neutrons equal to its Protons. The Atom Adding the Reagent shall roll 4DICE3 and subtract 8 to determine the Charge of the new Reagent. The Reagent’s Electrons will be determined by subtracting its Charge from its Protons. If the result would make the Reagent’s Electrons a negative number, the Electrons are set to equal the number of Protons, and the Charge is 0 instead. Each new Reagent is listed on the Wiki page entitled “Reagents” and will not be tracked in the GNDT like other Atoms. Reagents will be named Reagent X, with X starting at 1 and increasing by 1 for each new Reagent Added. When an Atom is Adding a Reagent, they shall make a comment on the GNDT including the name of the Reagent and both of the necessary dice rolls, with no other information.

The format of each Reagent will be as follows:

Reagent X
Protons:
Neutrons:
Electrons:
