Proposal: Let me paint you a portrait

Add the following new types of Machine to the list in “Machines”:

Easel

  • Cost: 1 or more Things named Paper, plus a Thing named Paint
  • Effect: Choose a number of Workers (other than yourself) equal to the number of Things named “Paper” spent, for which for each of those Workers, you have at least three of the same types of Machine that that Worker does. For each of those Workers, gain a Thing named “Portrait of ” followed by the name of that Worker.

Liquidiser

  • Cost: one Thing plus one Energy
  • Effect: Gain a Thing named Paint.

To the list in “Things” (if it exists) or “Products” (if “Things” doesn’t exist), add:

  • Portrait of name (where name is the name of any Worker): Pay the Cost of the type of a machine that exists in that Worker’s Line, then add a Cold copy of that machine (including any Widgets attached to it) to your Line.

Trying to figure out an interesting use for Paper – you can paint portraits of people if their line is similar to yours, and then use those to copy Machine+Widget combinations paying only the cost of the Machine.

I considered adding other types of liquid to Liquidiser, but I feel that that’s best left to a future proposal.
