here’s the deal

i just dealt and it was a long process to do. i’ll probably write some sort of bash script to accomplish dealing, would anyone else be able to utilize it or should I try a different scripting language? (maybe excel could somehow do this?) is there anything we could do to make dealing less intense? it’s a little late here so that’s why i’m not making a proposal.

I guess we only need a private script that the Emperor can run (and we trust their output), or a public script that one player can run and others can potentially run to check (the script including a seed taken from a GNDT die roll so that any output can be verified by reusing the same roll).

But yes, there are ways we could make the deal simpler as well. We could ditch the idea of a physical “deck” and just draw randomly from the same infinite pool every time, allowing duplicates. This would also remove the need to carefully deal out cards in order - we would just roll DICEX for each Wizard and give them that card.

I can run a bash script. I’d prefer a javascript or PHP script, so we can display it to the web. We have no shortage of sites it could live on.

I’ve built a tool we could possibly use:

Nice work!
