Proposal: Screaming for Icecream

Add to “Hunger”:

A Failed Experiment whose Hunger becomes 100 or higher becomes Berserk if they aren’t already. Becoming Berserk raises your Suspicion by 30 if it’s the first time you’ve become Berserk within 48 hours, as you roar for food.

If a Failed Experiment has 99 or less Hunger and they are Berserk, they become no longer Berserk.

Berserk Failed Experiments cannot perform any Dynastic Action except those which cause their Distance to change or cause their Hunger to lower.

Berserk Failed Experiments cannot achieve Victory.

We need a penalty for high Hunger

Proposal: Farming

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 17 Dec 2017 15:31:55 UTC

If “Location Abilities” did not pass, this proposal has no effect.

Add a new rule called “Potatoes”:

Each Failed Experiment has a number of Potatoes, defaulting to 0, and tracked in the GNDT. As a weekly action, any Failed Experiment can eat from 1-5 Potatoes, reducing their Potatoes by that number. Each Potato a Failed Experiment eats reduces their hunger by 2.

Replace “Fields: Performing this Location Action does nothing.” with

Fields: You can plant or harvest potatoes. Increase or decrease your Potatoes by 1, or, if the last time you took this action, you decreased your Potatoes by 1, you may instead increase your Potatoes by 2.

Add an ability to the Ability list:

  • Potato Whisperer (Manifest 50): When a Failed Experiment with Potato Whisperer harvests Potatoes, they may gain 1 more Potato then they normally would.

Proposal: Glarsh Zero

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 17 Dec 2017 15:30:26 UTC

Add three Abilities to the Ability list:-

  • Nimble (Manifest 20): Whenever a Nimble Failed Experiment alters their own Distance under another rule, they may then alter it by an additional 1 in either direction.
  • Sewer Dweller (Manifest 10): While they are in the City, a Sewer Dweller cannot be affected by the Abilities of other Failed Experiments.
  • Carapace (Manifest 40): Whenever a Failed Experiment with a Carapace would lose an amount of HP from a sentence other than this one, it loses one less HP instead (to a minimum of 1). Effects which set HP to a specific value are unaffected.

If “Man’s Reach” passed, replace “cannot be affected by the Abilities of other Failed Experiments” with “is not considered to be Nearby any Failed Experiments (except those which are also Sewer Dwellers)” in the created rule.

Proposal: Man’s Reach

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 17 Dec 2017 15:27:48 UTC

To the rule “Distance”, add:-

Two Failed Experiments are Nearby one another if they have the same Distance value. A Failed Experiment is always Nearby itself.

Throughout the ruleset, replace “one member of their group” with “a Nearby Failed Experiment”.

Throughout the ruleset, replace “another Failed Experiment which shares the same Location as them” with “a Nearby Failed Experiment”.

In “Distance”, replace “to increase their Distance by up to 5” with:-

to increase or decrease their Distance by up to 5

Following on from group repeal discussions, making the same-group and same-Location abilities more close range (your Swordfingers aren’t 10km long, you can’t Woundlick a group member on the far side of the city, etc), and allowing doubling back.

A wild Failed Experiment appears!

I intend to join BlogNomic and become a Failed Experiment.

I was walking along the road one day, minding my own business. This was a road I frequently traveled, but only to a certain point. Today I decided that I would venture farther, and so I did. After an hour or so of walking, I came upon a small city. I decided to enter it. It was quite a peculiar city, as there seemed to be nobody walking about. It was coming upon evening, however, so I figured that everybody was already inside. I continued to walk further, until I reached a field. At this point, I considered turning back, as there didn’t seem to be anything of much interest. But, nevertheless, I continued onward. I had to pull up some dry grass to put in my lantern to provide some light. After walking for another half hour, I saw what looked like a forest in the distance. I wanted to investigate it, so I started to run towards it. It took about twenty minutes to get into the forest. I slowed to a walk again, and continued on. All of a sudden, I heard strange noises from behind the trees. This frightened me, and I started to run out of the forest. But my efforts were futile. The noises came from a strange creature, looking like it was a failed laboratory experiment straight out of a sci-fi TV show. This creature was able to run faster than I could, and got in front of me. Before I could even try to escape, it spit acid directly in my face, and knocked me out.

I woke up in a laboratory. I didn’t feel like a human anymore. I was quite hungry, and was still hurting from the acid. I then realized… I had become a Failed Experiment!

Amend “The Forest, the Fields, the City and the Road are Locations.” to:

The Forest, the Fields, the City and the Road are Locations. If a Failed Experiment is at a Location, they may perform a Location Action, depending on their location, as a weekly action. The following are the Location Actions (and their associated Location):

- Forest: You can hunt or forage for food. Lower your Hunger by 10.
- Fields: Performing this Location Action does nothing.
- City: You can try to attend a doctor for help. If your Suspicion is below 10, restore 5 of your HP.
- Road: You can try to hijack a car or hitch a ride. Increase or decrease your Distance by up to 15.

to this:

5. Set NAME’s Max HP to either 2 less than it was, or 1 (whichever is higher), set NAME’s HP to 1, and set NAME’s distance to that of the Failed Experiment performing the action.

In the rule Abilities, change this text:

Each ability has a Manifest cost.

to this:

Each ability has a Manifest cost and an Oddity.

and this:

Each Failed Experiment’s Abilities are tracked on the Failed Experiments wiki page.

to this:

Each Failed Experiment has an Oddity, which is the sum of the Oddities of their Abilities. It, along with Abilities, are tracked on the Failed Experiments wiki page.

Set the Oddity of the Ability Greenback to 2.

Add to the list of Abilities the following:

- Human Mimic (Manifest 0, Oddity -1): You know can act just like a human. If you only have one diet, which is Humanized, the Oddity of this ability is -2.

If the proposal “Abilities” passes, set the Oddity of the Ability Swordfingers to 2. Set the Oddity of the Ability Sneaky to 0. Set the Oddity of the other Abilities described in that rule to 1.

To the rule Suspicion and the following text:

If the Suspicion of a Failed Experiment is less than 0, it becomes 0.

If the Suspicion of a Failed Experiment has not changed in the last 24 hours (1 Day) they may role 1DICEX, where X is 100 minus 25*their Oddity (If X is negative or zero, role 1DICE1 instead). If the result is greater than or equal to their Suspicion, than their Suspicion is lowered by 25. Otherwise, their Suspicion becomes 101.

Repeal the Groups rule.

If the phrase “The Forest, the Fields, the City and the Road are Locations.” is not in the ruleset, replace:

Add to the Distance rule:

When two different Failed Experiments are in the same Location and the absolute difference between their Distance is less than 2, they are considered in Proximity.

Replace:

To perform the action, the Failed Experiment’s group must have a Suspicion level equal to or lower than the required Suspicion level of the action.

Remove “A Dead Failed Experiment can join any group they want without needing to make a story post. They can do this as many times as they want.”.

Replace:

Proposal: Treasure Hunt

Adminned at 16 Dec 2017 12:08:23 UTC

If the Director doesn’t vote FOR this proposal, it has no effect.

Add a rule called “Cranky Grasstooth” with:

Cranky Grasstooth is an old and senile Failed Experiment from long ago which has taken residence in the forest near the lab. He knows about certain “Treasures” which are throughout the world, ones which, according to him, hold great “Magic”. However, he doesn’t remember too well all of the details - but his ramblings can provide valuable insight as to where they might be. As a Weekly Action, the Director shall post a Story post which details ramblings from Cranky Grasstooth (or some other story input), providing cryptic clues as to where the Treasures may be.

The Treasures are the following:

- Killer Tube: A weird metal contraption which makes a very loud noise when you pull on a little lever on it. At-will, it’s possessor can reduce the HP of any Failed Experiment to 1. Can be only used once.
- Energy Berries: A bunch of small, white berries which make you feel very very “awake” when you eat them. Can be used by its possessor to set their HP and Max HP to 50, but after 168 hours (7 days), their HP is set to 0 and their Max HP is returned to its previous value. Can be only used once.
-Wishing Brick: A plastic brick with buttons on it. Can be used by its possessor to reduce the Hunger of each member their group to zero by making a Story Post which details how they utter their request to the deity “Pizza Hut”. Can only be used once.

Each Treasure is hidden at a certain Distance value, which is determined by the Director in a timely fashion after this ruletext is added to the ruleset.

As a Weekly action and by increasing their Suspicion by 10 and making a Story post to this purpose, a Failed Experiment can Search their current Distance value. The Director shall then reply to such a post with a comment that contains the string “Success” or “Failure”, depending on if there was a Treasure at that Distance or not. If noted to be successful by the Director in this way, the Failed Experiment acquires the Treasure which was hidden there.

Add to the list of abilities the following:

- Woundlicker (Manifest 40): Your saliva is rich in a special ooze which promotes healing. As a weekly action, a Failed Experiment with a Woundlicker may raise the HP of one member of their group by 2.
- Acid Spitter (Manifest 40): You can spit acid. As a Weekly Action, an Acid Spitter may attempt to spit acid onto another Failed Experiment which shares the same Location as them, by rolling a 1d3 and paying 2 HP. If that roll gives a value of 2 or 3, reduce their HP by 6.
- Bulky (Manifest 50): You’re very robustly built. Your Max HP is increased by 12.
- Sneaky (Manifest 0): You need to have 150 Suspicion instead of 100 to be Captured.
- Swordfingers (Manifest 40): You got massive, but overly flashy organic blades on one of your hands. As a Weekly Action, a Failed Experiment with Swordfingers may attempt to slash another Failed Experiment which shares the same Location as them, by rolling a 1d3 and increasing their own Suspicion by 20. If that roll gives a value of 2 or 3, reduce their HP by half its current amount.

At any time, a Failed Experiment who is not Exposed may increase their Suspicion or Hunger by 1 to increase their Distance by up to 5.

with:

The verb “move” can be used to refer to a change in the value of a Failed Experiment’s Distance.

At any time, a Failed Experiment may increase their Suspicion or Hunger by 1 to move by 1 if they are Exposed, and up to 5 if they are not Exposed.

Add to the Distance rule:

The absolute difference between the Distances of two members of a same group cannot be higher than 2. If this requirement is not met after a Failed Experiment has moved, that Failed Experiment leaves their current group and forms a new group on their own.

Allows players to move in both directions, and forces groups to stay together.

In “Abilities”, replace “If they have not done so yet, a Failed Experiment can choose two abilities from the list below. Each ability has an associated Suspicion cost. When a Failed Experiment possesses an ability, their Suspicion level is increased by the associated Suspicion cost.” with:-

A number of Abilities have been observed during research, listed below. Each ability has a Manifest cost. A Failed Experiment with no Abilities may acquire two different Abilities by increasing their own Suspicion by the total of the Abilities’ Manifest costs, and making a blog post describing the acquisition of these Abilities. Each Failed Experiment’s Abilities are tracked on the Failed Experiments wiki page.

Replace the Greenback ability with:

Greenback (Manifest 40): Detachable, nutritious vegetable matter grows along the Experiment’s spine. As a daily action, a Failed Experiment with a Greenback may reduce the Hunger of one member of their group by 1.

If the text “Gain a new ability, they may do this even if they already have two” exists in the ruleset, replace it with:-

Gain a new Ability by increasing their Suspicion by the Ability’s Manifest cost

Clarifying where Abilities are tracked, and when their cost is applied. Also cleaning up Greenback a bit; “daily action” instead of “once a day”.

Proposal: Adjective-based action

Self-killed. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 14 Dec 2017 11:45:42 UTC

Add a rule called “Traits” with the following:

Each Failed Experiment has three or less traits, which are tracked on the GNDT. These traits are Adjectives, for example: Slimy, Tall, Calm or Strong. A Failed Experiment only has “Infant” as a Trait by default. A Failed Experiment can, once ever, Molt to attempt to set their traits to become up to three new ones, by making a Story post for this purpose with the [Molt] Tag, with it stating the traits that they are trying to acquire. If the Director posts a comment with the string “APPROVED” onto a [Molt] Story post, the Molt is successful and the Failed Experiment’s traits becomes those they have stated in that [Molt] post.

As a weekly action, a Failed Experiment can attempt to perform a Feat, by making a Story Post to this purpose with the [Feat] tag, which details how they use their Traits (along their environment and context, if relevant) to perform a certain accomplishment, along changing a certain amount of values which the GNDT tracks by up to a difference of 5 in total, which must be themed after the story detailed in the Feat story post. For example, rising the HP of a Failed Experiment by 2 and reducing that of another by 3.

- A cluster of actions, (and each of those actions in the cluster to be made one after the other and not simultaneously), for example “Opening a Bottle, then Filling it with water”
- A repetition of a cluster of actions. For example, “Opening a Bottle, then Filling it with water; 100 times”

To replace the tedium of just pulling it off the old fashioned way. This should allow to make loops with an extremely high amount of repetitions too.

Change this text in the rule Health:

Each Failed Experiment has an HP, which defaults to 12, has a maximum value of 12, and is tracked in the GNDT.

to this:

Each Failed Experiment has an HP, which defaults to 12, and a Max HP, which also defaults to 12. Both are tracked in the GNDT under one column with the name “HP” and the form X/Y, where X is the HP and Y is the Max HP.

If a Failed Experiment’s HP is greater than their Max HP, their HP is set to their Max HP.

Create a new rule “Death” with the text:

If a Failed Experiment’s HP is 0, then for the purposes of this rule, they are considered Dead.

A Dead Failed Experiment can join any group they want without needing to make a story post. They can do this as many times as they want.

The only two Actions in the dynastic ruleset a Dead Failed Experiment can perform are the following:

As a Daily Action a Dead Failed Experiment may increase the Suspicion of every member of the group by 5, or increase the Suspicion of the group member with the most Suspicion level by 15. If the group has more than one such member, the Failed Experiment may choose any of those eligible.

The only Action a Failed Experiment who is not Dead may perform to change the values the GDNT tracks of a Dead Failed Experiment is the following five-part Atomic Action:

1. Make a story post with the tag “[Revive: [NAME]]” where NAME is the name of a group member who is Dead.
2. Increase their own Suspicion by 40.
3. Decrease their own HP by 3.
4. [Optional] Gain a new ability, they may do this even if they already have two.
5. Set NAME’s Max HP to either 2 less than it was, or 1 (whichever is higher), and set NAME’s HP to 1.

Dead Failed Experiments cannot achieve Victory.

Create a new rule “Capture” with the text:

If the Suspicion of a Failed Experiment is greater than 100 for the purposes of this rule they are considered Captured.

Captured Failed Experiments are part of no group: They leave the group they are part of, and can neither form a new group nor join another group.

The values the GDNT tracks of a Captured Failed Experiment cannot be changed by any other Failed Experiment, and the only action in the dynastic ruleset they are allowed to perform is the following:

As a Daily Action, a Captured Failed Experiment may role X DICE12, where X is their Max HP. If the values of any of those dice are less than or equal to the Failed Experiments HP then their Suspicion is set to 75, their Distance is set to 0, and their hunger is set to 0.

Captured Failed Experiments cannot achieve Victory.

If a Failed Experiment’s state is Escaped, they follow all dynastic rules and sub-rules except for “Captured” and “Dead”. Otherwise, they are treated as an Idle Player for all Dynastic rules with a name not equal to their state, except Reviving.

If a Failed Experiment’s HP is 0, their state becomes Dead.
If a Failed Experiment’s Discretion becomes 0, their state Becomes Captured.

To this rule, add three sub-rules, the first of which should be called “Captured” with the following text:

If any of those dice have a value greater than their HP, their state becomes Escaped, and their Discretion becomes 30. Failed Experiments with the state of Captured automatically are ejected from the group they are currently in, and form a new group consisting only of their self.

The second sub-rule is named “Dead” with this text:

A Failed Experiment may join any Group they like, which they can switch at any time. As a Daily Action they may lower the Discretion level of every member of the group who’s state is not Dead by 5, or lower the Discretion level of the group member with a state which is not Dead and who has the lowest Discretion level by 15. If the group has more than one such member, the Failed Experiment may choose any, but only one of those who fill those requirements.

The third sub-rule is named “Reviving” with this text:

Any Failed Experiment who has more than 5 HP, 75 or more Discretion, and is a member of a group with another Failed Experiment who’s state is Dead may perform the following five part Atomic Action:

2. Decrease their own Discretion by 35.
3. Decrease their own HP by 3.
4. [Optional] Gain a new ability, they may do this even if they already have two.
5. Set NAME’s state to Escaped, their Max HP to either 2 less than it was, or 1 (whichever is higher), and set NAME’s HP to 1.

Change this text in the rule Health:

Each Failed Experiment has an HP, which defaults to 12, has a maximum value of 12, and is tracked in the GNDT.

to this:

Each Failed Experiment has an HP, which defaults to 12, and a max HP, which also defaults to 12. Both are tracked in the GNDT.

Enact a new rule, “Distance”:-

Each Failed Experiment is at a Distance from the Laboratory, being an integer value of kilometres, defaulting to zero, and tracked in the GNDT.

Failed Experiments with a Distance below 10 are in the Forest. Those with a Distance between 10 and 19 inclusive are in the Fields. Those with a Distance between 20 and 29 inclusive are in the City. Those with a Distance of 30 or higher are on the Road.

If a given Distance value has only one Failed Experiment at it, then that Failed Experiment is considered to be Exposed.

At any time, a Failed Experiment who is not Exposed may decrease their Discretion by 1 or increase their Hunger by 1 to increase their Distance by up to 5.

If “The Worse Part of Valour” enacted, replace “decrease their Discretion by 1 or increase their Hunger by 1” with “increase their Suspicion or Hunger by 1” in the created rule.

Replace “Discretion” with “Suspicion” throughout the dynastic ruleset. Set each Failed Experiment’s Suspicion to be 100 minus the value that their Discretion had immediately before the previous sentence’s enactment.

For each of the following pairs of quoted strings, replace the first string (if it is present) with the second:-

  • “Failed Experiments have a Suspicion level, tracked in the GNDT, that defaults to 100.” → “Failed Experiments have a Suspicion level, tracked in the GNDT, that defaults to 0.”
  • “Suspicion level equal to or higher” → “Suspicion level equal to or lower”
  • “equal to the lowest Suspicion level of the members” → “equal to the highest Suspicion level of the members”
  • “their Suspicion level is reduced by the associated Suspicion cost” → “their Suspicion level is increased by the associated Suspicion cost”
  • “If they have lost no Suspicion ever, their Hunger is always 0, and if it isn’t 0, it becomes 0.” → “If their Suspicion is zero, they may set their Hunger to 0 at any time.”
  • “by paying X Suspicion” → “by gaining X Suspicion”
  • “can increase their Suspicion by 35” → “can decrease their Suspicion by up to 35”

Remove “If a Suspicion level falls below 0, it becomes 0.” from the ruleset if it is present.

Flip Discretion to become Suspicion, and tweak the Humanized diet to avoid checking one variable historically and automatically updating another.

In “Hunger”, add:

Each Failed Experiment has special metabolic needs. By default, they can fairly easily feed off others of their own kind, however, each may evolve to need different nutrients to fit their needs. Each Failed Experiment has a “Diet”, which is tracked in the GNDT in its own column, which can hold one Diet or two (For example, “Solar Cannibal”). A Failed Experiment can change their Diet to become two of their choice, once per dynasty. The Diets are one of the following:

- Infant: A Failed Experiment with this diet can only reduce their hunger via the Greenback’s mechanic. This is also the default Diet.
- Cannibal: A Failed Experiment with this diet loses Hunger equal to the HP that they, via the use of an Ability, cause other Failed Experiments to lose.
- Solar: A Failed Experiment with this diet can use sunlight to sustain themselves, like a plant. They can lose 5 Hunger as a Weekly Action.
- Humanized: A Failed Experiment with this diet just needs average human food to survive. If they have lost no discretion ever, their Hunger is always 0, and if it isn’t 0, it becomes 0.
- Toxiphage: A Failed Experiment with this diet feeds off of toxic waste. At-will, they can reduce their HP by any amount to lose the same amount of Hunger.

Proposal: Abilities

Fewer than a quorum not voting against. Failed 2-3 by Kevan.

Adminned at 13 Dec 2017 15:04:57 UTC

Add to the list of Abilities the following:

- Natural Weaponry [X] (discretion cost: 10 * X): The Value of X is chosen upon acquiring this Ability, with X being an integer. Once per day, a Failed Experiment with this ability can Attack another Failed experiment by paying X discretion. The Attacked Failed Experiment loses HP equal to the X value of the Natural Weaponry of the attacker.

- Mimic (discretion cost: 10): As a weekly action, a Failed Experiment with this ability can increase their discretion by 35 (5 per day). A Failed Experiment with this ability has their maximum HP set to 1.

- Simbiotic (discretion cost: 10): By paying 1 HP, a Failed Experiment with this ability can transfer (giving or taking) HP between themselves and another Failed Experiment on their team.

- Megabrain (discretion cost: 30): By paying 1 HP, a Failed Experiment with this ability can transfer (giving or taking) Discretion between themselves and another Failed Experiment on their team.

- Guyverized (discretion cost: 20): You can Protect (or switch who you’re Protecting) a Failed Experiment of your choice by making a Story Post which clearly indicates this and paying 1 HP. You can only Protect one Failed Experiment at a time. Whenever the Failed Experiment you’re Protecting would lose HP, you lose it instead.

Proposal: Health and Healing

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 13 Dec 2017 09:33:26 UTC

In “Hunger”, replace “Once a week, a Failed Experiment’s hunger level increases by 10.” by “As a weekly communal action, any Failed Experiment may increase every Failed Experiment’s hunger level by 10.”

Add a new rule, “Health”:

Each Failed Experiment has an HP, which defaults to 12, has a maximum value of 12, and is tracked in the GNDT.

As a daily action, a Failed Experiment may raise their HP by up to 4, if they also raise their hunger by 5 times the amount they raised their HP.

Proposal: Abilities

Reached quorum 5 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 13 Dec 2017 09:32:01 UTC

Add to the “Hunger” rule:

Once a week, a Failed Experiment’s hunger level increases by 10.
If a Hunger level falls below 0, it becomes 0.

Add to the “Discretion” rule:

If a Discretion level falls below 0, it becomes 0.

Make a new rule “Abilities” containing the following text:

If they have not done so yet, a Failed Experiment can choose two abilities from the list below. Each ability has an associated Discretion cost. When a Failed Experiment possesses an ability, their discretion level is reduced by the associated discretion cost.
- Greenback (discretion cost: 40): Once a day, the Failed Experiment produces one fruit that can be used to reduce the hunger level of one member of their group by 1. The fruit must be used on the day it is produced.

This is just a starting point. It’s getting very late here so I’ll leave this for now and let others build on it.

Proposal: Initial mechanics

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 12 Dec 2017 11:43:54 UTC

Create a wiki page named “Failed Experiments”

Make a new rule “Hunger” containing the following text:

Failed Experiments have a Hunger level, tracked in the GNDT, that defaults to 0.

Make a new rule “Discretion” containing the following text:

Failed Experiments have a Discretion level, tracked in the GNDT, that defaults to 100.

Certain actions have a required discretion level. To perform the action, the Failed Experiment’s group must have a discretion level equal to or higher than the required discretion level of the action.

Make a new rule “Groups” containing the following text:

Failed Experiments are part of a group. Each group is listed in the “Failed Experiments” wiki page under a section named “Groups”, with one line per group, containing the names of the group’s members. If a Failed Experiment has not yet grouped with another Failed Experiment, they form a one-member group.

A Failed Experiment may change groups by posting a Story Post with the [Group] tag and specifying which group they want to join. Members of the target group can refuse the request by posting a comment containing the AGAINST icon. If after two days the number of group members voting against is less than half the size of the group (not rounded) then the Failed Experiment who published the post is added to the group and removed from their previous group.

If an action has a Group Effect, the effect is applied to all members of the group that the performing Failed Experiment belongs to.

Each group has a Discretion level, equal to the lowest discretion level of the members of the group.

Ascension Address: The incident

“This is head of security sir. There was an, um, incident this morning.”

“Again ? We can’t afford to lose staff members at this rate. It’s growing increasingly awkward to justify this, and—”

“—Not to worry. No-one has died yet. It appears we have experienced an act of sabotage or something of that nature. Whoever it was managed to penetrate the building undetected and proceeded to override the cell-locking system.”

“Oh for Pete’s sake please tell me none of the specimens got away.”

“Quite a few actually, but fortunately all of them were due for termination this week. No financial loss on this one.”

“Some good news there I suppose. Send out a team and fix the problem on the spot before someone gets killed, or worse, they find out what we’re doing here.”

“Already on the field.”

“Perfect then. What about the specimens ? Are any of them dangerous ?”

“Hard to say. The lab chief assured me they are quite harmless. No psychokinesis, no invisibility, nothing of that sort. I think one of them grows some kind of fruit on its back, so discretion might be an issue. In any case predictability isn’t their primary asset, particularly in an uncontrolled environment, so who knows what could happen.”

“Just don’t give them enough time for the hunger to kick in.”


Change “Master” to “Director” and “Tesserer” to “Failed Experiment”. Repeal all dynastic rules, and change the status of none of the Special-Case rules.

Adminned at 10 Dec 2017 20:46:34 UTC

I believe that “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.” means that the orientation of the Tesseract is reset after each time the Instability reaches 5, as this is what we had been doing so far, and is implied by that the original proposal adding this text would have no clear effect on gameplay otherwise, since the orientation had already been set.

In this interpretation, the chance that Cuddlebeam could have run their combos to completion is essentially zero. But I presume that Cuddlebeam’s intention in posting the combos, even if they couldn’t be done to completion, was to do them for as long as possible until a listed action would have failed. By my count: after “[Combo] Setup”, Cuddlebeam had 14 power, and the Instability was 3. Each iteration of “[Combo] Loop” raises the Instability by 3, and then increases power by 2. Running the loop 12 times would give Cuddlebeam 38 power, enough for 76 wisdom, above Diabecko’s 75. In running the loop 12 times, the Instability would have reached 5 seven times, requiring 7 rolls of a DICE8 to reorient the Tesseract. If the roll were a 3 or 4, this would have destroyed all of the Fire shards, stopping the combo as written.

Upon enacting this CfJ, roll 7 DICE8 in the GNDT. If any are 3 or 4, replace the rule “Merit” with “The Tesserer named Diabecko has achieved victory.” If none are 3 or 4, replace the rule “Merit” with “The Tesserer named Cuddlebeam has achieved victory.”

Declaration of Victory: Cuddlebeam wins

Fails upon another DoV enacting. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 11 Dec 2017 11:14:31 UTC

It’s the 10th of December and I got the most Merit, so I’ve achieved victory.

Explanation

Using the Heat Spell 3 times while I have two Tessered Acts for making 2 Fire Shards each lets me gain 4 Fire Shards for the price of paying just 3 Fire Shards. With the 1 Fire Shard profit in that loop, I cast Ashes to Ashes which gives me 2 Power.

So I use that loop an obnoxious amount of times to gain a huge amount of Power, and therefore, Merit.

The weird Combo posts are just to “program” the looping. (I’ll try some explicit loop-specific Combo utility proposals next dynasty, could be good).

[Combo] Loop Repetition & Locking out others

I’d argue that the “rules of the current dynasty” also includes the non-dynastic rules, because they’re of use in any dynasty, therefore the current one too, however the wording seems to imply that solely the rules of Section 2 are the ones relevant in a particular dynasty.

So, adjusting that to something more plain and clear.

Inactive Dormancy

Is the Dormancy rule going to kick in if another player idles? Although the Dormancy rule is currently set to inactive, this only means that it “[does] not have an effect on the gamestate”. But its clause that “actions defined by dynastic rules may not be taken” might not be affected - players’ actions themselves are not, I think, gamestate.
