Proposal: Avs

Reached quorum 7 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 01 Jun 2023 11:30:00 UTC

If Proposal: Level Knevel was not enacted then this proposal has no effect.

Add the following as a subrule to the rule Levels of Reality, called Avatars:

There exist Avatars, which are privately tracked by the Ascendant and which have the following properties: a unique Name, a home Tier (which must be the Tier of a currently-extant Rule other than 1), and an occupancy Tier (which must also be the Tier of a currently-extant Rule, and must be lower than that Avatar’s Home Tier).

If at any time there are fewer than 10 Avatars then the Ascendant may make new Avatars until there are exactly 10.

Add the following as a subrule to the rule Yanking, called Mindjacking:

A Mindjacker may carry out a Mindjacking as a daily action. A Mindjacking is the act of making a post in the Story Post Category with the title Mindjacking: x, where x is the flavour-text string of its author’s choice; the contents of that post are at the author’s discretion but are not gamestate.

If a Mindjacking has a value for x which exactly matches the name of an Avatar whose occupancy Tier is exactly the author’s Level then the Ascendant should, at their earliest opportunity, make it with a FOR symbol. The author of that Mindjacking then Ascends and the Avatar is destroyed.

Without constraining the Names of the Avatars or offering hints of some sort, I don’t quite see how Mindjackers will ever be able to guess at any Name. Consider that even the length in characters of the Name is not constrained, so the possible solution space is effectively infinite.

Also, this statement is a little vague: “the name of an Avatar whose occupancy Tier is exactly their Level”. You should probably clarify that “their” is the author of that Mindjacking.

Oh yeah, it’s definitely impossible as written - it’s supposed to be a jumping off point rather than a complete mechanic.
