Fantasy Rules Committee Round 2

Postby Liberonscien » 29 Aug 2016, 18:13

This game is similar to nomic, and anyone can post rules. There is a Judge (starting with me) who judges whether each rule is valid or invalid. A rule is judged invalid if it is inconsistent with a previous valid rule or itself; otherwise valid. If a valid rule restricts further posting too much too early in the round, it can be judged unfair and can be ignored. The goal of the game is to come up with the last rule such that nobody can post any new rules after it. (All rules must obey themselves, but they don't need all past rules to obey them.)

If nobody posts a valid new rule for three days, then the last person to post a valid rule becomes the judge for the next round (if they want to). If nobody posts for an entire week (except meta-discussion), then anybody can become the new judge.

Meta-Rules:
1. The game progresses in rounds. All rules save one are repealed between each round.
2. Anyone may post a rule in the current round.
3. A rule that is inconsistent with a previous valid rule in the same round, or with itself, is to be judged invalid. Otherwise it is to be judged valid.
4. If a rule restricts play too much too early in the round, it can be judged unfair despite being valid. Unfair rules can be ignored.
5. If no valid rules are posted for 3 days, the judge may end the round.
6. The player posting the last valid rule becomes the judge for the next round, if they want to. Otherwise (or if nobody posts for a week), any player can become the judge by calling it.
7. Valid rules are numbered R[round].[rule], e.g. R1.1 is the first rule of the first round.
8. The judge may set a theme for the new round when starting it.
9. At the end of each round the judge chooses a rule to be added to the Meta-Rules.
10. On every seventh successfully passed rule, centaurs will attack a target of the player who successfully passed the seventh rule's choice. That player is no longer allowed to pass rules in this round due to dismemberment.

So can anyone start posting at any time, like could I post the first rule right now?

Yes, you may propose a rule at any time.

This is valid and accepted.

Proposal #3
Call Me Ishmael

Whale attacks have reduced the population of the world to one man. Each future rules proposal must start with the phrase, "Call me Ishmael."

My initial thought was that this wasn't valid according to R1.2.
After applying my inner rules lawyer I see that it did not say "W", just "w".
This is valid and accepted.
