Proposal: Artifact details

unpopular 1 to 6. Failed by Derrick

Adminned at 08 Aug 2018 20:51:58 UTC

In the artifacts section, change “An artifact tracks its name, its soul, its court, its type, and its era.” to “An artifact tracks its name, its soul, its court, its type, its description and its era.” In addition, add “the description is decided by the creator of the artifact. It must be followed through entirely, but if any description of a future artifact contradicts a past artifact, the future artifact is made useless. If an artifact’s description is contradictory, the description becomes ‘nothing occurs with this artifact’. The description must pass a quorum of voters before the artifact is made.”

I think this is a classic “Free text” problem. Probably the easiest I’ve seen.

I make an artifact with the description “This artifact may be used by any mortal at any time. When it is used, Derrick wins”

against not quite. it’d be better if the rule stated descriptions were just flavor text and not actually rules. unless you meant for the description to allow the artifact to do something?

I wanted the artifact to actually do something, right now artifacts are useless

well having a vote each time someone makes an artifact seems unnecessary, maybe you could propose artifacts do something more simplistic and grounded in the ruleset and theme?

Making a list of possible effects, or a set way to assemble effects, would be best.
