Re: Nomic 16.0

I make a motion to amend the rules of wagers to allow for odds. A player may write "I wager <positive integer value X> point(s) against <positive integer value Y> point(s)that <some event> will happen by <certain time>. This wager's name will be <player's nickname> Wager #<current wager number>" in bold.
If the wager maker wins he gets Y points and the wager accepter loses Y points. If the wager maker loses he loses X points and the wager accepter gets X points. For purposes of voting this motion shall be referred to as Carey's motion to allow odds.

Buy: Lottery ticket #63 for 5 points
Buy: Lottery ticket #61 for 5 points
Buy: Lottery ticket #30 for 5 points

I'm out, see you all later.
DUCK!

Waiting for a SotN so that I know what the open motions are for sure. Then I'm gonna charity my points to whoever deserves it the most. This game is moving too quickly for me.

Feel free to try and convince me why you should get the points.

Re: Nomic 16.0

Carey, what are you doing? I count two double posts AND a useless post, and this is a really new page. I'll have to penalize you 8 points total for the double posts, and

As arbiter and per rule §01.04, I find this post excessivly content-less. I penalize one point, which is doubled to 2 due to honor.

I'm really sorry I had to do this.

The problem with making a SotN is that the rules have been restructured, which was done on the wiki. I don't want to do it for the forum format, too. Thus, I'm waiting for someone to accepts Spikey's motion, which removes the need to post a list of the rules in the SotN.

Re: Nomic 16.0

I accept to be judge in Snarky's and Carey's duel by Mousetrap at Sunset.

Looking back, there was a whole lot of chaos, and I just don't have an overview over who deserves what penalties. If suggest that we just ignore every mistake people made between the last SotN and this post. Anyway, no penalties are included in this post.

(charged Alex a total of 14 points for 3 investments)
(awarded Spikey 4 points for Spikey's motion to introduce quicker sabre duels passing)
(awarded Fiery 8 points for Fierys motion to restructure the rules passing)
(awarded Fiery 8 points for Fierys motion to make the wiki easier to find passing)
(awarded Carey 8 points for Carey's new motion to require four votes passing)
(charged Odin 5 points for lottery ticket)
(charged Carey 15 points for lottery tickets)
(charged Fiery 15 points for lottery tickets)
(charged Odin 10 points for lottery tickets)

Honor: 5 points
Fiery
Odin
Carey
Froggy
Chia

Investments:
10 Carey
6 Fiery
6 Snarky
6 Alex
4 Odin
4 Spikey

I was very excited to find this. As soon as I think I understand the current rules, I'd like to join. Or perhaps wait for the next game.

Odilo wrote:I'm going to be discouraged from making the deciding vote on a motion if it means I'll have to update the wiki. I think it should be updated when someone posts a SotN.

The purpose of motions is not that they are perfect amendments to the rules. If you like the overall idea (wiki), but dislike a detail (who updates it) vote it in and then make a motion to amend accordingly. If others feel the same way your motion will get passed. This is the general pattern for all new ideas so far.

I would make an appeal that people would please vote for the wiki, as the game is currently in a state of flux until we can properly move over. It's quite urgent!

For myself, I think that updating the wiki when a motion is passed makes more sense, and reduces the burden on those who do SoTN posts.

I cast my vote against Fiery's motion to create recursion. (Now 1 for, 1 against, 1 abstain)
I cast my vote in favour of Carey's motion to allow odds. (Now 3 for, 0 against). (Note that motion does not pass yet)

Challenge of the Desert Blade, Round 1, Duel D (Chia VS Snarky)
Chia strikes, Snarky feints. Chia scores a hit!

Edit: I apologize for not phrasing my arbitration requests correctly, Fiery. Pure laziness on my part I'm afraid. I'll do better from now on:

I request clarification on rule Rule §06.02 (Rules on duelling). Despite the confusion earlier, I really think the rules should read that the judge declares the points according to what has actually been won, not just the text "X gains 3 points, Y loses 2 points". In motions we declare the actual number of points according to double down, honor, etc., not just 4 because that's what the rules say. So duels should be the same.

Further edit: I have created Challenge of the Desert Blade on the wiki. If judges could add the results of duels to there, I would find that helpful, although it is not a requirement.

Re: Nomic 16.0

I second the idea that those penalties be ignored

I make a motion to create a new honorable title, Bookmaker. The Bookmaker is allowed to have multiple wagers. When this motion passes, Carey will be the starting Bookmaker. For purposes of voting this motion shall be referred to as Carey's motion to be a Bookmaker.

Wait, that means I have to update the wiki now. Please give me more than 10 minutes as I am currently asleep and using an iPad and hung over.

Re: Nomic 16.0

I cast my vote in favor of Carey's motion to be a Bookmaker.

As arbiter, I declare that rule §06.02.6 shall be edited as follows to remove the ambiguity:

When the duel has been resolved the winner of the duel gains 3 points, and the loser loses 2 points. The judge must declare this by saying "X has won a duel against Y. X gains n points, Y loses m points", where n and m are the points otherwise defined in the rules.

(changes are in bold. The wiki has been updated to reflect this)

Thanks for the decision, Fiery.

I have updated the wiki so that the chess motion and odds motion are added to the rules and listed in the all motions page with the right outcome.

Just wanted to say that I am really enjoying this game - even if I am not very good at it. You Nomicans are great fun.

Edit: Ooh, also: Buy: Double Down perk for 20 points

Re: Nomic 16.0

Welcome. It's always nice to see someone new

Unfortunately I've just noticed that you can't do anything according to the rules. §01.03 forbids you from taking a nickname until you have voted on all motions, and §04.01 prevents you from voting until you have a nickname. Really sorry about that. It should get fixed soon now that I've pointed it out. (personally I have two active motion, so I can't make a new one right now)

Of course, you can still post and talk. It's just official actions which are forbidden.

I found the link in the original motion and added it to the wiki here. But it won't load in my browser, perhaps I have got it wrong?

I had noticed that too, but I'm tied up waiting for my wiki motion to pass...

I make a motion to make entering into the game possible. This rule will alter rule 1.03 to state that taking a nickname is excluded for this rule, as to resolve the contradiction between 1.03 and 4.01. This motion shall be known as Tim's motion to make it possible for people to enter the game.

I cast my vote in favour of Odin's motion to return points for failed lotteries. (Now 1 for, 0 against)

Don't forget to update the wiki, so that the two new motions are reflected on the rules and motion pages, and so that your new motion is on the motions page.

I make a motion to remove rule §01.03. For the purposes of voting this shall be referred to as Spikey's motion to make it easier to just play a little Nomic at a time.

Edit: Buy: investment for 8 points
