Proposal: Damn near killed ‘em!

Timed out 4-0. Enacted by card.

Adminned at 24 Jul 2017 15:50:33 UTC

Add a new rule, “Golem”:

A Golem is an automaton created from the Earth, animated by Pact Magic. For the purpose of Dynastic Rules, they count as a Pactmaker.

A Pactmaker may create a Golem by, as an atomic action:
* Spending 3 Mana and 7 Stamina.
* Giving the Golem a name, which must be a single word beginning with the letter G, and not the name of any Pactmaker.
* Engraving at least one Promise into the Golem. The Golem is then considered to have made those Promise(s).
* Making a public post about the Golem’s creation, indicating the Golem’s name and promise(s).

At the time of its creation, the position of a Golem in Ibiza is that of its creator; its Mana is 1, and its Stamina is 5.

At any time, a Pactmaker may Activate a Golem. When a Golem is Activated, it attempts to keep all of its Promises. If there is ambiguity in how the Golem should resolve keeping its Promises, the Activator may choose how to resolve it.

If a Golem is the subject of a Magic Backlash post that is Enacted, it is destroyed instead of undergoing Extreme Seizures.

An Admin may add newly-created Golems or remove destroyed Golems from the GNDT.

I think activation should be made more clear. What if the golem has the promise which is “I will make a promise within 2 minutes which contains a set of text which is the solution to one of the Millennium Prizes”?

(But I like the idea a lot)

I’d think someone would have to activate it so it can fulfill it, and then find a way to make the solution to the Poincare conjecture not spam. (Or for an unsolved problem, solve it in two minutes - much less likely!)

Probably the golem would just not fulfill the promise and get destroyed. Easy-peasy.
