Set the Brick Master’s Funds to 0.
Add the following to the ruleset as a new rule, entitled Citizen Brick:
The Brick Master is not considered to be a Mini Figure for any dynastic rule.
If there is a rule entitled Templates, repeal it. Add the following to the ruleset as a new rule, entitled Requests:
Provided there are fewer than three active requests, the Brick Master may make a request by creating a story post with the title “x Request: y” where “x” is the type of request (detailed below) and “y” is the name of the request (as chosen by the brick master). The post must also contain text which describes a construction, and must describe either a standard reward, a bonus reward, or both, both of which must be positive amount of funds.
For the next 48 hours, the request post remains active. Each Mini Figure may once remove a construction from their workbench which fits the requirements of the request and make a comment about it on the story post. The comment must, as with the workbench, detail a name, a value and the composition in bricks for each construction. It is strongly encouraged to also include a link to a pictorial illustration, or at least a textual description of how the bricks fit together. A mini figure who does this is said to have completed the request. If the request carries a standard reward, the mini figure may then increase their funds by the standard reward for the request.
After 48 hours, the request ceases to be active. If the request carried a bonus reward, the Brick Master may then once within the next 48 hours make a comment on the story post mentioning one mini figure who completed the request, whom the brick master believes best fulfilled the request. That mini figure’s funds are then to be increased by the bonus reward for the request.
The number of completed requests is tracked in the GNDT, under the Brick Master’s Funds column.
Add the following as a new subrule to the rule entitled Requests, called Open Requests:
An open request must detail at least three criteria for the composition of the requested construction, but not its shape or structure. Examples of criteria may be, but are not limited to, the following: number of blocks used, colour mix of bricks in the construction, value of the construction, proportion of non-standard bricks used. An open construction may carry either or both kinds of reward, but bonus rewards should generally be given for the construction that meets the criteria while also most closely resembling the real-world object it is named after.
Add the following as a new subrule to the rule entitled Requests, called Closed Requests:
A closed request must detail at least one structural or shape-related characteristic for the requested construction. This may be as narrow as requesting a specific shape (“build me a house”) or as wide as describing vague physical characteristics (“the construction must have four sides”). A closed request may not make requirements based on composition of bricks, although these issues can be factored in when adjudicating bonus rewards. An open construction may carry either or both kinds of reward.
Add the following as a new subrule to the rule entitled Requests, called Project Requests:
A project request must detail the nature of a wide-ranging project that the Brick Master is trying to achieve. Mini Figures may respond to this request with any construction of their choice, provided that it in some way adds or contributes to the project. This kind of request may only carry a bonus reward. Projects and the constructions that have been incorporated into them may be tracked on the Brick Master’s Projects page in the wiki.
Recasting the Template Requests mechanic slightly to allow for a more defined range of requests.
