Add the following paragraph to the section of the rules titled “Fire Walls”:

Every * character in a Program’s Fire Wall counts as one point towards that Program’s Score.

Add a new Dynastic Rule titled “Gaining Points” with the following text:

Within fourty-eight hours of a Program’s output being modified, that Program may change any character in their Fire Wall to * if their new output is the abbreviation for any element on the periodic table of elements. This action may only be performed once by a Program each time their output is modified.


This adds another action Programs can do. I’d like to start making use of both the Fire Wall and Programs’ inputs/outputs.

against My memory of the periodic table is more than a little rusty.

for If the period table is all that onerous, we can set up an automatic checker that reports if things work in the code.

against a program’s score is an orphan variable

[card] If it’s always equal to the number of asterisks in a particular grid then that’s “a manner in which it it can be determined from other gamestate variables” and it’s not orphaned.
