Proposal: What an strange place

reached quorum 7-0 with 1 def enacted by card

Adminned at 09 Mar 2018 20:53:51 UTC

If The Glass and Wonderland have not passed this proposal does nothing.
Make a new rule “Terrain”

The Heart Location and Spades Location are each integer values tracked on the Alice wikipage. The source materials are [[Through the Looking Glass]] and [[Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland]], the wikipages have the paragraphs numbered for your convienence and they may only be edited by proposal. The Hearts Location corresponds to the numbered paragphs in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. The Spades Location corresponds to the numbered paragraphs in “Through The Looking Glass”.

A number inside of a cell which is prefixed with ‘t’ is a Terrain. Pieces in cells have access to that Terrain and subsequently that corresponding paragraph in the relevant source material. The Hearts source material is “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and Spades source material is “Through the Looking Glass”.

If one of the words, “walk”, “move”, “ran” or any of their different conjigations appear in Terrain that a Pawn has access to, that Pawn is considered to have one more Movement.

Assign each cell a random Terrain keeping the possible numbers relevant to the source material of that cell’s board, removing duplicate Terrain and repeating this until each cell on each board has Terrain. This assignment does not have to be randomly determined with the GNDT.

Add the following to “Hearts”

Any text or rules added to the ruleset which make reference to the Hearts board, in name or otherwise, must be added to the ruleset under this rule.

Add the following to “Spades”

Any text or rules added to the ruleset which make reference to the Spades board, in name or otherwise, must be added to the ruleset under this rule.

The movement part is an example of interaction with the Terrain, but the idea is to add more.

This is pretty nuts lol. But I don’t think that the text of an ENTIRE BOOK - TWO ENTIRE BOOKS has been used as a mechanic so, alright. Greentick. Not voting yet because the proposal is thicc.

Here’s what I used to number the paragraphs:
awk ‘BEGIN{RS=ORS=”\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\n”;FS=OFS=”\\\\\\\\n”;i=0} /\w|\-|\d/ {i++; print i FS; for(j = 0; j < NF; j++) print ”    ” $(j+1);}’ aaiw | grep -P ‘\w|\d|-’ > aliceinwonderland.txt

and then I used:
awk ‘BEGIN{RS=ORS=”\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\n”;FS=OFS=”\\\\\\\\n”;i=0} /\w|\-|\d/ {i++; print i FS; for(j = 0; j < NF; j++) print $(j+1);}’ aaiw | grep -P ‘\w|\d|-’ > aliceinwonderland.txt
since wikiformatting doesn’t like text that’s preceded by spaces. Just posting it in case it might be useful for future dynasties.

that’s odd, must be a problem with expression engine, the backslash ns are supposed to have just one backslash

I’d probably suggest Terrain-appropriate mechanics once we know what place is what (the Queen’s castle, the initial rabbit hole, what have you)

Hmm, neither of these wiki links actually works (one is capitalised differently, the other has been given different apostrophe by ExpressionEngine).

Probably summon the typo rule and fix it.
