Proposal: Radio Gestalt

Timed out / reached quorum 4 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 21 Dec 2014 19:24:44 UTC

Add “Hiveminds”, a new Rule with the following text, to the ruleset:

Each Shuttle may belong to a single Hivemind, tracked in the GNDT. A Shuttle may leave their Hivemind at any time.

Each Hivemind has a Charter, tracked in the “Hivemind Charters” wiki page.  Each Charter should contain:
*The circumstances under which a Shuttle may join that Hivemind.
*The circumstances under which a Shuttle may cause another Shuttle in the Hivemind to act.
*If the Hivemind is Awarded Victory, how to decide which of its members achieve victory.

Each Hivemind also has a unique name, its section title in the Hivemind Charters page.

A Shuttle may join a Hivemind if that Hivemind has fewer than (Quorum - 2) members, its Charter allows them to join it, and they have not left a Hivemind in the past 24 hours.

A Shuttle may cause another Shuttle in the same Hivemind to take an action, as if that other Shuttle were a Proxy, under circumstances permitted by their Hivemind’s Charter, with one exception: they cannot cast a Vote by Proxy even if the Charter and Proxy rules permit it. 

If the rules Award Victory to a Hivemind, for the remainder of the dynasty, its members may achieve victory as described by its charter.

A Hivemind with no members is Defunct.


I intend for charters to be created by proposal.  I will generally vote for these proposals.

against Fun to formalise this kind of thing, but I’m not sure it’s the healthiest fit for a game where (so far as I can see) only two players have taken any non-grind game actions thus far.

Kevan: We can use Hiveminds to remote-control Derelicts.  Does that change your opinion?
