    ERBOH.com Nomic

    OK. So. Do you enjoy rifling through rules, hoping to find an exploitable loophole? Do you perhaps want to see and make something grow into something else? Well, don't you worry.

    What I brought here is a game of nomic. What's this one about? Well, it's a game which, in the beginning, allows the players to change its rules democratically. Of course, the rule/rules that allows the players to change the rules democratically is a rule like any other and can also be changed democratically, so it does not necessarily have to stay this way, though it usually does.

    We are gonna be playing under the following initial ruleset:

    1. Players take 24 hour turns adding a proposal to the game. A proposal can be changing an existing rule, deleting an existing rule, or making a completely new rule. You may only make 1 proposal on your turn. The player(s) whose turn it is can be found in the Turn_Order.md file.
    2. When a proposal is made, a Game Moderator will add it to Voting.md file. If the rule has more votes for than against after 48 hours of it being in Voting.md file, it will be added to Official_Rules.md file (or other appropriate thing will happen) and it will have an immediate effect from then on.
    3. The first player to reach 1000 points, wins the game.


    Well, before you ask, I'd like to clarify 2 things:
    1. You can see that there are references to some .md files. Those will be files in a GitHub repository I'll link to you once the game begins. Normally its for organizing computer code, but I figured it'd be suitable for this as well. It'll allow us to organize things into folders, in case the game grows so much that it becomes necessary.
    2. As you can currently see, the initial ruleset does not have explicit rules that would allow to reach 1000 points and win the game. That is intentional. That's because there is an implicit way of winning the game, and that is to change the rules so that there is a way to get points or to win in another way entirely.



    Did I pique your interest? Well, I'm gonna be collecting your sign-ups, and if enough players express their interest, I'm gonna shuffle the turn order and begin the game.

    Sign-up list:

    2. Poles
    3. Juiz
    4. YellowNerd

    Ok, I'm gonna say... let's go.

    Here is the link to the github repo that stores all shit relevant to the game (currently, the turn order, the current ruleset, and the list of proposals currently voted on.): https://github.com/JackCossack/ERBOH...ee/master/game

    After I've shuffled the turn order, it seems like the Poles has the first turn.

    If anyone else wants to join in... Well, you can't join right now, but if we decide we need more players, we'll make a rule that specifies how the new players can join.




    And now, speaking as one of a players. Before we start proposing rules left and right, how about we discuss and try to decide the theme of the game? After all, if we all have roughly the same idea of what the "final" game is supposed to be about, the rules we propose would make for a less disjointed set of mechanics, right?

    I'm not sure what I want this game to be, but I feel like lynching Sam should be a crucial component to winning it.

    I suppose we could make it themed around the slightly dead, but slightly alive forum. It could be an interesting RPG thing, with players wandering around the remains of, say, groups? Making Sam the villain could make lynching Sam a viable objective.

    Anyone got any other ideas?
