Proposal: Unlockables

Timed out 6 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan. Have assumed “paragraph” to include the bullet points beneath the paragraph about Things (which has no no paragraph break between the text and the list).

Adminned at 20 Aug 2021 06:21:05 UTC

In “Products”, move the paragraphs beginning with “Workers have an amount of Things”, “A Thing may optionally have an Effect”, and “Each Worker may only have at most 10 Things” to a new subrule of “Products” called “Things”, maintaining their order respective to one another; then move the text of “Crops and Seeds” to the end of that subrule and delete the empty rule called “Crops and Seeds”,

In “Products”, append the following paragraph:

Each Worker can have a number of Techs up to their number of Prototypes. A Tech is the name of a High-Tech Machine or Widget, recorded in a publicly tracked Tech list (which defaults to blank) corresponding to a Worker. A Worker may add a High-Tech Machine or Widget to their Tech list at any time by paying its Cost.

Above the third paragraph of the rule “Machines”, add the following paragraph:

A type of Machine can be High-Tech or Low-Tech, defaulting to Low-Tech. A Machine type’s High-Tech status is tracked by a bullet point reading “High-Tech” in its listing in the Ruleset. If a Machine is High-Tech, Workers may not add it to their lineup or activate it unless they have its name in their Tech list.

Above the second paragraph of the rule “Widgets”, add the following paragraph:

A type of Widget can be High-Tech or Low-Tech, defaulting to Low-Tech. A Widget type’s High-Tech status is tracked by a bullet point reading “High-Tech” in its listing in the Ruleset. If a Widget is High-Tech, Workers may not add it to any Machine in their lineup unless they have its name in their Tech list.

Add the following bullet:

* High-Tech

to the listing of Chime in the rule “Machines”.

The first blockquote seems to have been cut off: it ends “by spending that”.

It might also be a good idea to explicitly specify that you’re creating a new subrule called “Things” (i.e. “a new subrule” rather than “a subrule”) – the proposal probably works anyway, but it’s best to avoid ambiguity.

What’s the purpose of this?

@bucky giving prototypes an immediate benefit even if u intend to win via some other means; letting us explore the space of machines & widgets that are more powerful than the baseline & require more buy-in to access; and, since we seem to be angling for a game based around swapping out machines tactically, allowing different players to have different loadouts not just in terms of what is in their line but what they have access to in the first place :o
