Proposal: Fresh Start

Timed out 7 votes to 2. Enacted by Kevan.

In the Ruleset, change all occurrences of “Atom” to “Player” and “Schema” to “Emperor”.

Enact a new rule entitled “)_(”:

Each Player should choose one item from a numbered list on this page to be their Image, tracked in the GNDT column “Image”. No Player may claim an already-claimed Image.

Each Player should choose another such item to keep secret and be their Style, tracked in the GNDT column “Style” as the first 8 characters of the SHA-1 hash of [their Style concatenated with an 8-character nonce]. Every player should keep their nonce somewhere safe in case they need to verify their Style.

Enact a new Rule entitled “(o)”:

There is a GNDT column labeled “Eyes” that defaults to 1.

Something completely different. Secrets without a central Emperoring authority? You bet! To be honest, I just thought of this while trying to fall asleep, and my only other idea for the dynasty involves winning eyes for writing surrealist poetry. I’m just pulling our creativity away from chemical things. I hope no (dynastic) rule names are words…

Actually, I’m wishing that we have a sort of dynamic, discrete, hidden-information Dvorak-type action system in place of GNDT point flow.

for “Haiku-writing cyclopses” sounds like a great dynasty theme.

for I am a sucker for offsite numbered lists.

against I have no idea where this would even begin to go, and I don’t want another stagnant dynasty. It’s definitely an interesting idea though.

for I think the difference is with the axioms there was no clear way to go, but there were clearly limits on what could be done. I think this could avoid stagnation.
