Add a new rule called “Collectibles” with the following text:

Shifters sometimes carve figurines of the Humans they have known in their time at the castle. It is said to be very difficult to collect a “full set” of the Individual figurines. Shifters may not collect multiples of the same figurine; this behavior would be gauche, and display too much attachment to a given Form. A Shifter’s figurine collection is tracked privately, not in the GNDT.

Two Shifters may trade poses in the comments of the most recent New Day Dawning post. To make such a trade, a Shifter may offer the opportunity to carve their current Form. Other Shifters may respond, offering the opportunity to carve their own current Form to the first Shifter. Should the first Shifter make another comment in agreement to a specific respondent, each of the two Shifters gains a figurine of the other’s Form. A Shifter may only gain a figurine in this way twice per New Day. Once another New Day Dawning post is made, any partial trades that were not completed in comments of the previous New Day Dawning post are considered void.

In addition, a Shifter may carve in foretelling. If a Shifter’s Storytelling Comment has come True, the Shifter who posted it may, once during the following New Day, gain a figurine of any one of the Humans named in their Storytelling Comment.

Any Shifter who has a figurine collection that includes each Individual Human, and can prove as much by citing specific comments, has achieved victory.

If the item “The Child” exists in the list in the rule “Humans,” change the last sentence of “Collectibles” to read:

Any Shifter who has a figurine collection that includes each Individual Human (except The Child), and can prove as much by citing specific comments, has achieved victory.

Maybe a little more interesting than “get the highest number.”

for Nice.

Although foretold carving decisions either need to be more provably concrete (perhaps requiring the MD5’d hash of a sentence that describes the figurine) or explicitly fuzzy (so that players can retroactively choose which one they carved).

I intended them to be retroactively fuzzy, yes, but perhaps that should be more… clearly… fuzzy.
