Proposal: Start Your Henges

Passes 8-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Add a subrule of “Cards” called “Playing”:-

A Wizard may play a card which is in their hand, unless the card’s constraint prevents them from doing so. To play a card, the Wizard performs the following Atomic Action, known as “Spellcasting”:-

  • Apply either the Up Effect or Down Effect of the card, unless the card’s constraint prevents them from doing so.
  • If the card is still in their hand, remove the card from their hand.

Remove the paragraph beginning “When a Wizard plays a card in their hand” from “Cards”.

Making “Drawing” and “Discarding” subrules of “Cards”, with “Drawing” before “Playing” and “Discarding” after “Playing”.

If “The Point” enacted, make a subrule of “Cards” called “Scoring”:-

A Wizard may score a card which is in their hand, unless the card’s constraint prevents them from doing so. Upon doing so, they remove that card from their hand and simultaneously add its score to their Thaum.

Remove the paragraphs beginning “When a Wizard attaches a card” and “The effect of an attatched card” from the ruleset, and add a subrule of “Cards” called “Attaching”:-

A Wizard may attach a card which is in their hand, if the card’s constraint explicitly allows it. Upon doing so, they choose a Community and an Up state or a Down state. The card is then removed from their hand and attached to the Community in that State. The Community a Card is attatched to may be called that Card’s Community.

The effect of an attached card corresponding to its state is rules text if it is not an action.

Under the current rules it looks like the only playable cards are “Start Playing” and “Start Drawing” (which have a Constraint of “may be played when…”) - nothing else gives us permission to play cards yet. The same goes for Scoring and Attaching.

This groups everything into subrules of Cards and gives them “you may do this” rules, and makes card playing into a two-step atomic action instead of a one-step followed by “and then another thing happens”.
