Proposal: Removing a third wheel

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Add to the first paragraph of Duels:

The Judge can be specified to be “Hash” by the Challenger, in which case the Hash variant applies.

Add to Duels:

The Hash variant of a Duel requires the challenger to state their list of creature slots for the battle as a comment to the duel’s post instead, in a hash, once the Opponent has been assigned and within 48 hours. Within 48 hours from that, the opponent must publicly post their list of creature slots as a comment to the Duel’s post. Within 48 hours of that, the challenger must reveal the hash they used and the creature list that they submitted for this Duel, as well as resolve the Duel as a judge would with the two given lists.

I assume we’ve got enough swagger to know what a hash is.


Kevan: City he/him

There’s a lot of “musts” here - what happens if people don’t, or can’t?

We’ve used hashes before but have always explicitly said how to generate them, linking to a URL so that everyone is using the same one and others can check it. This would allow players to use their own hash algorithms (eg. one that hashes all sentences to the phrase “a suffusion of yellow”).

Good idea, though, hashes are always worth considering when the Emperor isn’t holding any secret information.

Also, there has to be a phrase that says the regular variant doesn’t apply. And another that says that the duel’s battle has taken place. (Other than judgment, which, for normal duels, is actually only revealing that it did so.)

True, true.
I have no more time
So this is due:
