Proposal: Mitosis

Self-killed. Failed by Derrick

Adminned at 16 Mar 2017 20:32:13 UTC

Add to the rule Anatomy, as part of the list of valid organ states:

*Bud: An organ in the state of Bud may “split” as an atomic action if there are at least two other organs with the state of Bud, to create a new creature. Name the creature a well established human name unique to the game state, change the creature of each organ in the state of Bud to that name, and change the state of all organs in the state of bud to amorphous

Add to the rule Creatures

If a creature has less than three organs, it ceases to be a creature, and any organs in it must change their state to nymph (for free, without paying any nutrients) before taking any dynastic actions.

This should allow reasonably free arrangements of various creatures.

I liked women in the bible as a theme.  Also, this still doesn’t solve the problem of where on the map the new Nymphs go when their creature ceases to exist.  It’d be much nicer if they transformed into Nymphs automatically rather than existing in a weird liminal (and technically illegal) state for a while first.

You’re right, the Organs are not technically located anywhere on the map.

against “Well established human name” seems like it could trip us up (particularly as it could include surnames, and names in any language).
