A game of Nomic, gentlemen?
OK so this forum is about the game Nomic. A game where you can change the rules. There are the locked-in, set in stone, rules of Nomic:
1 turn per post.
Turns may be:
  • adding a rule
  • subtracting a rule
  • amending a rule
All the other rules will be made in game.

Rule 21: There is a levelling system. Each 10 point barrier you break makes you level up. You do not lose levels when you lose points.Being a higher level currently does nothing, other than a higher position in the tally regardless of points. I am permanently Level Mod.

icanhasdonut: 12 points Lvl 2 (Thanks for that subtraction.)

Awww, why did you take out rule 17? Did I break a rule? Is that why I don't have 3 points?

Rule 22: Money now exists. You can use either USD or the Euro if you want, there's no alvernatives, and transaction ratio will always be 1 USD to 2 Euros, no matter how inaccurate that may be IRL. As of this rule, there is no way to gain money.

2 points! I'll take USD please.

Rule 32: Working is a thing you can do. Working can only be done 8 or more posts aftir the last time you've worked. It will net you $5 (€10).

And I will now work.

Amend Rule 32: You can only work if you are not curantly on a quest (And yes, you can work right before you ask for a quest).

I will now work.

And speaking of quests, can you give me one MedicInDisguise?

Also, Reecer, you broke Rule 31, but I don't know if there should really be points lost because it literally just came before your rule.
