Proposal: Butterfly Selects

Add a new rule entitled “Divergent Actions” as follows:

A Divergent Action is a type of Atomic Action, in which the first step is always rolling DICE2, and which has two potential direct outcomes based on the result of that roll.

If the proposal “Quantum Leap” has passed, add to “Divergent Actions” the following:

The following list is not rules text unless Divergence has occurred:

  • A Scientist who is Prime-Oriented must apply the Divergent Action outcome matching their roll for that action to the Prime version of themselves, and must apply the alternate outcome of that Divergent Action to their Alpha Version.
  • A Scientist who is Alpha-Oriented must apply the Divergent Action outcome matching their roll for that action to the Alpha version of themselves, and must apply the alternate outcome of that Divergent Action to their Prime Version.
  • A Scientist who is Balanced must apply the Divergent Action outcome matching their roll for that action to both Alpha and Prime versions of themselves.

I’m already tired by the idea of someone trying to scam this with “well the first time I EVER took this action I rolled a 1 so blah blah” but I don’t want to make this a giant tangle of words just to avoid that case. Suggestions on that point welcome.
