Story Post: [Tessered 3] Tada!

The Tesser named Diabecko creates a shard and gives it to the Tesser named card.

Proposal: Cleanup time

Repeal “Face Actions”

Remove

The following comes from fragments (believed to be Folio 2) from The Fourth Orthocodex of G. Ray, Master Emeritus in Aeternum:

  Each pair of different affinities has its own Face Action; each with a shorthand Symbol:

  - Nature/Fire: Radiance (☀)
  - Nature/Water: Abundance (♾)
  - Water/Fire: Transition (♻)
  - Water/Void: Carving (❖) [*, +]
  - Fire/Void: Destruction (✖) [*]
  - Nature/Void: Opposition (◑) [*]

  [+] see Folio 7 for discussion on naming of this Face Action.
  [*] see Folio 9 for derivation of the symbology for these Face Actions.

The Fourth Orthocodex may be cited in brief as ‘R4’. Text from R4 is not considered to be rules that Tesserers obey, unless otherwise specified.

Remove

This footnote is considered by scholars to come from the Octocodex written by O. Sedecim, Second Corner. This is one of the few remaining fragments after O. Sedecim accidentally traveled through Interim. The following footnote is considered ruletext.

  A Tesser can perform Face Action by having the affinities that correspond to that Face Action participating and spending power equal to the number of affinities of the Face Action which don’t match the Tessers’ affinity. Participating affinities are the affinities of any Tessers that help in that action as well as the affinities of shards that participating Tessers possess; in case two or more Tessers perform a Face Action, they both pay this cost calculated with their own affinity.

The Octocodex may be cited in brief as ‘O8’. Text from O8 is not considered to be rules that Tesserers obey, unless otherwise specified.

These seem to be sort of useless when we have the spells being a lot more popular.

Story Post: [Tessered 3] Drum roll…

The Tesser named Diabecko creates a shard and gives it to the Tesser named card.

Story Post: Abracadabra! [Tessered 3]

The Tesser named card creates a shard and gives it to the Tesser named Diabecko

Story Post: Kazam! [Tessered 3]

The Tesser named card creates a shard and gives it to the Tesser named Diabecko.

Proposal: I volunteer

Make the Tesserer named Cuddlebeam the Master.

Add a rule named “Master’s Duties” with:

The Master cannot achieve victory

So, Axe idled

Monday, November 20, 2017

Proposal: Wincon

Add a new rule called “The Archmaster of Archmasters”

A Tesser achieves victory if they fulfill all of the following:
-They have the most Power.
-The Tesseract’s current Orientation is that which is associated to their Affinity.
-They have two of each kind of shard.
-They are being watched by the Archmaster.

 

About two weeks (and some change) in, good time for a wincon

1 2 3 Check

after 11 days Axemabaro idles
after 8 days Darknight idles
quorum becomes 3

Format of Tessered acts on wiki

I changed the format of Tessered acts on the wiki to indicate who owns the act (important since they can change owners) and to show the exact text that was posted (as the rule states). Also I suggest we do not change the number indicating the length of the Tessered act (this was done previously as a countdown), as I feel this makes things more confusing.

Proposal: Allow aligned proposals take 2

Add to the rule “Affinity”
Tesserers can legally make proposals with their alignment with them, however, they have stricter requirements.
They may pass only if the number of votes against equals zero.

I would rather have no “against” votes than 100% “for” votes in case some people don’t vote.

Proposal: Lore

Under Synonyms add the text

An X Tesser, where X is a valid affinity, means a Tesserer of that affinity.

Make a new rule “Trade” with the text

A Teaser may make a Trade Story post by putting the [Trade] tag in it’s title. In that post the author details a specific Tesser and they state what they want to trade, naming the amount and what it is. If within 2 days the named Tesser has accepted, indicated by commenting “SOLD” in the relevant post, the Tessers swap ownership of the detailed items.

In “Void” add the text

Nothing truly tethers a Void Tesser to the world, they are beyond such trivial things: Void Tesserers are required to spend or trade at least 1 shard or 3 power every 2 days.

In “Nature” add the text

A Nature Tesserer helps the natural balance of the world, aiding wherever they can: Nature Tessers are required to boost or trade 1 Nature Shard to the Tesser with the least number of shards for 0 power that has an affinity.

In “Water” add the text

A Water Tesser is tune with the flow of life, adjusting themselves to reflect that: whenever the Tesseract has been in the same orientation for 2 consecutive days, Water Tessers are required to participate in a Face Action that shares an affinity with the Tesseract’s orientation.

Change the rule “Affinity”
Tesserers can legally make proposals with their alignment with them, however, they have stricter requirements.
They may only pass if they get a unanimous ‘for’ vote.

I think this seems fair.

Any way to warn about proposal limit

I there any way the site can warn you that you already have two proposals open and that a new one is illegal?
Also, can a Dynasty rule change the number of allowed open proposals?

Story Post: Changing things

I change my affinity to Void and spend 3 power to create a void shard.

it’s because i’m edgy ;p

Add a rule called “Suplex”

If a Tesserer has become such from being a non-Tesserer in the last 72 hours, they may, once ever in the dynasty and if their Power is zero, Suplex a Griffin, to thus gain the necessary magical power to start out here at the Tesseract and thereby gain Power equal to the average amount of Power that the rest of Tesserers have, minus 5.

Knowledge is power (but the mind is closed)

Anyone know why I can’t comment on the below Proposal? Is it just me?

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Proposal: Knowledge is power

attempt #1 to allow comments, submitting it again with just the admin box as the only change - card
attempt #2 closing and then reopening comments - card
attempt #3 toggling the status from something else back to Open - card
attempt #4 changing the comment expiration date to tomorrow - card

With each accepted proposal, the submitting Tesserers power goes up by one half.

Knowledge is power, and as you spread your knowledge, your influence grows.

Proposal: philanthropic shards

sorry but a tesser can only have up to 2 pending proposals at any one time
you’ll have to wait until your other ones are no longer pending

Add to the wiki under spells:
A shard aligned to the player casting may be referred to with an “O”
[OO] Extraction: Once a day the caster may give each other Tesserer (not including the caster) one shard of the casters aligned type.

By interacting aligned crystals, a philanthropic action can be taken.
I hope that unexploits this rule.

“Nope”

Add to the list of spells:

[NNN] Seed: Create a Seed, which are noted in the GNDT as “S” alongside your shards (Seeds occupy the same space as shards in a Tesserer’s Shard inventory). At-will, a Seed can be destroyed to make two Nature Shards for yourself.
[FF] Flame Lance: Destroy a thing which occupies a space that Shards can occupy.

The instability of the tesseract is then set to 0. The orientation of the tesseract is set as determined by a DICE8 roll in the GNDT, where 1 is North, 2 is South, 3 is East, 4 is West, 5 is Up, 6 is Down, 7 is Ana, and 8 is Kata.

 

An instable tesseract is a subtle thing. One never knows which way it may turn.
