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

Add to Affinities

North-South and East-West are opposites. Up-Down and Ana-Kata are opposites. Affinities of cells that are opposites are also opposites to those affinities.

Add to Spells

Y stands for a shard that is the same affinity as the performer. P stands for a shard that is the opposite affinity of the performer. O stands for a shard that is the same affinity as the Tesseract’s current position.

Add to the list of Spells

[A] Ashes to Ashes: Gain 2 power.
[Y] Future Me: Gain power equal to the sum of the X values of your Tessered acts, to a maximum of 20.
[P] Negate: Choose a Tesser other than yourself. If they have a shard of your affinity they lose it and gain a shard of their affinity and you gain a shard of your affinity.
[O] Gamble: You must wait until the Tesseract’s orientation changes before casting this spell again. Roll a DICE2, on a 1 gain a shard of the Tesseract’s orientation after it changes.

Story Post: ditto

Proposal: organize

Make a rule called Shards.

Move the text of Mass to Shards and then repeal Mass.
Move

Each Tesser has an amount of Shards, which are a magically created resource. Shards have an affinity, which is a Tesser Affinity. Each Tesser’s Shards are tracked in the GNDT by a capital letter of their affinity (FFWN for 2 Fire shards, 1 Water shards and 1 Nature Shard, for example). A Tesser can hold as many shards as they have Power. A Tesser can pay 3 Power to make a Shard of their Affinity. Tessers can freely give their Shards to other Tessers if that Tesser would be able to hold them. Tessers can freely discard their own Shards.

to Shards

Make Boosting a subrule of Tessering.

Make the rule whose name starts with N and the rules Void, Fire, Water subrules of Affinity.

Proposal: Crafts

Add a new subrule called “Crafts” within “Spells” with:

If the Tesseract’s Orientation is that of your Affinity, you make a Craft by paying the appropriate shard cost in brackets as listed here according to the usual Spell shard cost nomenclature. A Tesserer can hold 1 Craft per 10 Power they have. The Crafts a Tesserer has is noted in the GNDT in its own column titled “Crafts”. Crafts, the ability you gain for having them and their shard cost are the following:

[VW] Paints: A Tesserer who has this item can change their Affinity to any other, at-will.
[FW] Alcohol: The Tesserer who has this item can GET WASTED and optionally brag about how they don’t remember what happened last night. They lose all of their Shards and their Power becomes 5.
[VN] Pesticide: A Tesserer with this item cannot have Nature Shards but each time they make a Void shard, they may roll a 1d3. If they roll a 1 with that, they gain another Void shard.
[NF] Chili Pepper: The Tesserer who has this item can make a Story post about how they eat the Chili Pepper. Upon doing so, they lose their Chili Pepper and gain 15 Power. The next time this Tesserer would gain Power, their Power becomes 0 instead.

More “things” than just shards.

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.

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.

Replace the first Paragraph in Tessering with:

Anytime a Tesserer publishes a Story Post which is not a Combo, they may, in the title, put the following tag: [Tessered X], where X is a number less than or equal to their power. This Post is called a Tessered Act. Any actions described in a Tessered Act are not performed at the time of the Tessered Act’s posting: instead, the text of the post will be added to a section named “Tessers” of a Wiki page named “The Tesseract”. All actions described in the Tessered Act that the Tesserer who writes the Tessered Act could have make at the time of the Tessered Act’s creation are Actionable. After X days have passed, all Actionable action(s) described in the Future may or may not be performed by the Tesserer who created the Tessered Act, following the rules of an Atomic Action. If all Actionable actions are not performed within 48 hours after X days have passed, the Instability of the Tesseract increases by X. After 48 hours after X days have passed, or after the Actionable actions are performed, the Tessered Act’s text may be removed from “The Tesseract”. A Tesserer may only have two Tessered Acts at a time.

Remove the line “The sum of the contents of a story post with the [Tessered X] tag is called a “Tessered Act”.”

Lets put some limits on what Tessered Acts can do. The bulk of this is shamelessly stolen from another proposal (which shamelessly included a rider clause giving pokes stuff!)

Shard shifting allows Tessers to change shards of their own affinity to shards of a different affinity. To shift N shards, a Tesser must remove those shards from their list of shards and write a story post with a [Tessered X] tag (X being greater than or equal to N) that specifies they are shifting N shards. When the shifting action is finally performed, the Tesser gains N shards of the same affinity as the orientation of the Tesseract at that time, except if the orientation has the same affinity as the Tesser in which case the Tesser can choose which affinity their shards are being shifted to (all shards must be shifted to the same affinity). If for some reason the action is not performed, the shards are lost. At any given time a Tesser may only have one post containing a shifting action.

We need an initial way to obtain shards of a different affinity than ours.

By spending the cost in shards in brackets (noted here in Affinity initials, just like how they’re recorded in the GNDT), you can perform the following spells:

- [FWNV] Albedo: Gain 3 shards of affinities of your choice.
- [FWNV] Nigredo: Destroy 3 shards of your choice.

Amemdment XXI

Repeal The second part of the proposal “The Properties of the Tesseract” by removing the following text from the rule Tessering:

Anytime a Tesserer publishes a Story Post which is not a Combo, they may, in the title, put the following tag: [Tessered X], where X is a number less than or equal to their power. Any actions described in such a post will not be performed: instead, the text of the post will be added to a named “Tessers” of a Wiki page named “The Tesseract”. After X days have passed the action(s) must be performed, and the text removed form the wiki page. If the actions are not performed within 48 hours after X days have passed, the Instability of the Tesseract increases by X. A Tesserer may only have two such posts at a time.

I thought that this was gonna be a good rule, but I don’t think it’ll lead to anything.

Add to “Codices”

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.

Proposal: Boosting

Adminned at 09 Nov 2017 22:54:26 UTC

Add to the Rule “Tessering”

The sum of the contents of a story post with the [Tessered X] tag is called a “Tessered Act”.

Create a new rule called “Boosting”

A Tesserer may “Boost” the Tesseract by paying 2 power. This reduces the amount of power than must be paid in each unfullfilled Tessered Act by 1. The amount of power a Tessered Act’s cost is reduced by is tracked on The Tesseract wiki page.

 

Lets incentivize making these future promises.

I intentionally made it impossible to have a net power by boosting your own Tessered Acts, but simple for two Tesserers to scratch each other’s backs in this way, and easy for a third party to piggy-back on their efforts.

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.

Any person trained, even a first day Tesser, can perform Face Action by either cooperating with a Tesser that has a different Affinity than they (shards can replace both Tessers, allowing a Tesser to activate Face Actions which they don’t share an Affinity with) and spending power equal to the number of Affinities they don’t have; in case two Tessers perform a Face Action they both pay this cost.

Proposal: The Fourth Orthocodex

reached quorum 6-0 enacted by card

Adminned at 09 Nov 2017 05:32:39 UTC

Add a new rule, “Codices”:

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.

Add a rule called “Inventory” with this text:

Each Tesser has an Inventory, tracked in the GDNT, which is a list of words, which are Items.

If the rule “Orientation” is enacted, add a new rule called “Alchemy” with the following text:

If a Tesserer makes a Story post with the tag [Tessered X], they may in that post state that they wish to perform an Alchemy, by choosing an alchemical formula with a time value which is less than or equal to X. If the Tesserer pays the list of shards, and complete all the other requirements, and the orientation of the Tesseract is in one of the allowed values at both when the post is started, and when it ends, then that Tesserer adds an instance of that object to their inventory.

An alchemical formula consistis of 5 parts: the name of the object, a list of shards, a list of possible orientations of the Tesseract, a time value, which is a number, and possibly other requirements. They are listed in a rule called “Alchemical Formulas” which is a subtle to this one.

Certain Affinities feed off others, just like the natural flow of mystical 10 watt AC Chakra power through the multi-cosmos. Buy paying one Shard of an Affinity which isn’t your own, you gain 2 Power per each Tesserer which are of the Affinity which your Affinity Feeds on, and Tesserers of that Affinity lose 1 Power each.

The Fire Affinity Feeds on the Nature Affinity. The Nature Affinity Feeds on the Water Affinity. The Water Affinity Feeds on the Fire Affinity.

The Void Affinity feeds on no Affinity but nor is it fed upon.

A Tesser Communes with the Shards by making a Story post to this effect and halving their Power. When a Tesser Communes with the Shards, the Master shall privately tell them the Divine Equation in a timely fashion. The Divine Equation is an equation in the form of X + Y = Z, where X, Y and Z are integers.

If “Affinity” exists as a rule, add to it the following:

Each Tesser has an amount of Shards, which are a magically created resource. Shards have an element, which is a Tesser Affinity. Each Tesser’s Shards are tracked in the GNDT by a capital letter of their element (FFWN for 2 Fire shards, 1 Water shards and 1 Nature Shard, for example). A Tesser can hold as many shards as they have Power. A Tesser can pay 3 Power to make a Shard of their Affinity. Tessers can freely give their Shards to other Tessers if that Tesser would be able to hold them. Tessers can freely discard their own Shards.

Ascension Address: The Tesseract

The Master of the Tesseract sighed. He was getting old, and was worried that the secrets of the artifact he held so dear would be lost forever. Yes, he had gotten some apprentices, and they showed some enthusiasm, but they mush prefers playing foolish games on these new-fangled “computers.” The Master resolved to do whatever he could to get those kids interested. Suddenly, he had an idea: What if he could turn the teaching into a real-life version of those games!? He immediacy began preparing.

Change “Homeowner” to “Master” and “Trick-or-Treater” to “Tesserer”. Repeal all dynastic rules, and change the status of none of the Special-Case rules.
