Proposal: The Void

Times out and fails 1-3 with 2 unresolved DEFs / Skju

Adminned at 06 Jul 2013 07:07:39 UTC

Enact a new rule, titled “The Void”:

There shall be a new wiki page called the Void. Upon enactment of this Proposal, the Void shall contain no Nucleons. The Void can be treated as a collection of Nucleons not part of any Domain, and the Void is not an Atom. The Void contains a nonnegative integer number of free Nucleons, defaulting to zero. As a Daily Action, an Atom may add one Nucleon of a chosen Essential Letter to the Void. As a Daily Action, an Atom may synthesize another Atom using two Nucleons from the Void. This Atom shall have the special designation Artificial, to be added to the wiki page Artificial Atoms. When an Atom is synthesized from Nucleons in the Void, said Nucleons shall be removed from the void. A newly synthesized Artificial Atom shall have essence values equal to its first two Nucleons. A newly synthesized Artificial Atom shall be given a name. A newly synthesized Artificial Atom shall be assigned a Domain by its creator, or shall be in domain “Origin” if unspecified. The Artificial Atoms page must be updated every time a action is taken on an Artificial Atom to accurately reflect the state of that Atom. An Artificial Atom may only be acted upon, may not take any actions itself, and may not achieve victory, as it is incapable of posting a DoV.

Optionally, we could track the data using the GNDT rather than the Wiki. If you prefer this route, vote Against with an accompanying message indicating this is your wish.

Because seriously, how can we expect to build a universe using only nine Atoms?

Rule 2.6 (Nucleons): “If an Atom ever possesses twenty Nucleons of the same type, that Atom has achieved victory.” Under current game rules, this would take a very long time, as the only way to generate new Nucleons is through a Weekly Communal Action, and moving Nucleons between player Atoms is a zero-sum game.

against I like this proposal, but I definitely think that Artificial Atoms should be rows in the GNDT,

Also, I’m not sure that achieving victory would take all that long under the current rules,
