Games / A Simple Game Of Nomic
« on: August 18, 2012, 01:40:04 am »
Hello all. I recently discovered the game Nomic and have taken an interest to it. The game is open to all, be you a pro at Nomic or a new player.


Nomic is a game invented by Peter Suber. "Nomic is a game in which changing the rules is a move. In that respect it differs from almost every other game. The primary activity of Nomic is proposing changes in the rules, debating the wisdom of changing them in that way, voting on the changes, deciding what can and cannot be done afterwards, and doing it. Even this core of the game, of course, can be changed. (Suber)"

This is a game where the rules are always changing; hence, the only real 'rules' are the initial rules which can also be changed as soon as the game starts. We will be following Peter Suber's initial rules. For the purpose of documenting these rules, we will have a few base rules that can not be changed. These pertain to how rules are entered into the document.

Please contact me if you notice that the documented 'unchangeable documenting rules' disagree or come into conflict with the initial rules that can be found further down this post in a link. Rule 108 may have to be discussed.

1. The rule will be entered with the prefix '1' or '2', depending on the mutability of the rule. '1' is for immutable rules while '2' is for mutable rules.
2. The rule will be entered with an integer suffix depending on number of rules already in the document. For example, if rule 112 (Immutable Rule 12) already exists, the rule will take up number 113 (Immutable Rule 13)
             2A. Rules that end up being single digit numbers will prefixed with '10' or '20'. For example 101 is Immutable Rule 1 and 202 is Mutable Rule 2.
3. All rule additions must have a date of entry following the entry.
4. The name of the person who entered the rule must follow the entry.
5. Removed Rules must be put into a section reserved for removed rules. The rule's original number, date, and applicable name must be part of the removed rule.
6. Amended rules or rules in the process of being amended must be labeled as so on the document.
7. Rules currently in the process of being voted in will be put in a special section on the document.

All rules will be held in a document for all to view.

Rules will fall into two categories. Immutable and Mutable. Simply put, Immutable rules can not be changed until they themselves are changed to mutable rules.

The first rules we should apply our thinking and voting to are as follows. (This is only a suggestion.)
A. How one wins the game. Rule 202 on the following website page should provide an idea for this. (Rule 213, if it is still applicable, may over ride this rule.)
B. How voting is conducted. (Cbox, a poll someone makes for us, etc. etc.)
C. Who will handle the document. (Again, this can change.)

Initial Rules

This section of the website will be our initial rules. Remember, rules prefixed with '1' or '10' are currently immutable. Rules prefixed with '2' or '20' are currently mutable.

Initial Set of Rules from Peter Suber.

Join the game!

Join in at anytime. A master list of the players will be posted here. The game will start once we get 2 people including myself. The initial rules state that the play order is determined alphabetically by name.

Remember, a move is any addition, subtraction, or amendment of a rule. The next move begins once voting on said rule is complete.

Mr. Hanes loves knives. Present tense. He absolutely adores them.

So much deadly force in such a small size. So much deadly force in a simple and elegant shape.

Now, when he heard that this city of demons (Still couldn't get over that) had a shop exclusively for anything with a sharp edge, he was thrilled! He had immediately gone out of his way to take down one of his sponsors competitors and taken a rather large chunk of change with him as he entered the city. He walked around like a little boy about to go into his favorite candy shop for a treat.

The demons of the city got out of his way. They preferred not to be the one to stop him from entering his 'candy store.'

He found it quickly thanks to the help of his underworld benefactor. He waltzed in and, almost immediately, he was overwhelmed by the beauty surrounding him.

'Today is a joyous day!' he mentally yelled. He perused the glass cases; simple cutlery was in this first case. Even that was beauty to him.

He finally reached an area that he thought was the 'combat knife' area. Specially designed knives with specially designed sheaths greeted his color-blind eyes. He could care less about the colors these knives had; all that mattered was the gleam of the edge. That idea was promptly thrown out of his head as he laid eyes on the single, most magnificent knife he had ever laid his eyes upon.

Well, knife wasn't the right word for it. It was actually a Cold Steel Kuhkri Machete. The oblong shape was interesting; the pitch black color of the metal was even more interesting.

He could be like a ninja! No more opponents that would see his blade thanks to some stupid shine in the middle of the night!

He quickly looked up for a store associate; there was one about five feet away.

"Excuse me sir," he asked. "How much for this lovely beauty?"

"$100," the man replied quickly.

Cheap! He reached into his pocket and handed the man his money. The man opened the case and gave him the knife in return. "Wouldn't you rather look at the knife before paying for it?" the associate asked.

"I can tell this one was perfect the moment I saw it," Mr. Hanes quickly replied. "Thank you!"

He walked out of the store and quickly made his way to the nearest bar. It was time to celebrate.

My next post will have Mr. Hanes enter the dark city with a shitload of money.

What can you buy in the Dark City Shion? I'd personally like to get him a Dark City gun from an antiques store...

((I'd like to point out that the bartender in this post is in fact, NOT, Norton. That is, unless Shion wants him to be :|))

Before you enter a proper bar, your ears tingle by light background music coming from the inside. Next, your sense of touch is activated as you place your hand around the doorknob and turn your wrist. Third, it's your sight; the dimming of the light is a stark contrast to the bright outdoors. Fourth is your sense of smell; a heavy smoke hangs in the air and smells of cigarettes and cigars.

You have to approach the bar itself to activate your final sense.

Mr.Hanes did just that. He took an empty seat at the bar and smiled to the bartender. "Two shots of Russian Standard please."

The bartender nodded; with a skilled hand, he reached behind him, pulled two glasses and bottle; a quick pour and a push: Mr. Hanes had his drink in front of him.

He nodded acknowledgment and slid the man 7$.

Other attenders at the bar had given the man little notice; that is, until he began to sip the vodka. The others stared in disbelief; the bartender was surprised but said, and showed, nothing.

Mr.Hanes ignored them. He liked the cool burn that slid down his throat, the excited tingle and burn that dropped like a stone on his body. He savored the drink more than others, others that would swallow a cup whole and depreciate the taste.

Many, after taking their shot, would slam the glass down. Not Mr. Hanes. Mr. Hanes places the glass down gently; no need to take out the burn on a poor little glass.

"I see your a connoisseur of the fine, good sir."

Mr. Hanes looked at the man; it was the bartender.

"Thank you," he told the man. He picked up the glass to his lips and-

"Why don't you try this one?" the bartender said. "I recently had it imported from the Netherlands; Lucas Bols."

Mr. Hanes gently grabbed the glass from the man and swirled it around in the cup. "Sounds interesting."

He sipped it slowly; the burn was light compared to the other but the drink itself had a bit more taste; a mix of berries, he thought.

"It is very fine; more taste and less burn than the Russian Standard," he said. "I think I'll have another glass."

"Of course sir," the bar tender replied. "I'm glad I made the correct choice on a new import."

"How much will it be?" Mr. Hanes asked.

"First cup's on the house."

Mr. Hanes smiled. "I'll enjoy myself here for a bit," he told the bartender. "Just keep the cops out."

"Why would I do that?" the bartender asked, perplexed.

"I killed the cities top Rio today and stole his money. I'll be going to a rather dark city to spend it later once the sun goes down."

Eight sets of legs to the right and seven sets of legs to his left.


The rush of wind above him and the unfurling of a parachute.


The sound of feet against the iron cargo boxes.

"I've been set up for an ambush..."

In a flash, two knives were flying towards the two on the iron cargo boxes. They hit there mark in no time and both fell dead. Another knife above and the man was separated from his parachute. That man fell to his death.

"Spl~at!" Mr. Hanes yelled. "Your friend makes a very nice spl~at!"

The 15 men on the ground were very mad. He couldn't, nor did he want to, make out their curses against the sky. From the sound alone, he could tell they were armed with cheap swords, cheap guns, and cheap combat knives. He could almost smell the old, army surplus armor the men were wearing around their chests. And they were very loud.

"Assassination missions are meant to be silent," he pointed out to the men. "You guys are just-"

"Get him!" one yelled.

Mr. Hanes sighed. This was starting to get old really fast. He mumbled to himself before finally opening his eyes. He turned straight to the man and looked him dead in the eye. "You really want to die tonight..."

With a grin on his face and a glint from his eye, he was speeding towards his opening, knives twirling in his hand. He ducked under the first ones punch; his hand moved up and sliced the mans heart in half. A kick from the left and he's in the air, kicking two men with a sickening crunch. He lands on yet another one and stomps on the mans face, crushing his skull. He hears a bang and quickly ducks and spins in place, dodging the bullet. He throws a knife at the man; the satisfying sound of a thunk tells him the man is dead.

"Come on! 5 of you haven't even given me a warm up!"

They all rush in at once, in a very well spaced, well practiced circle. He clicks his heels together and knives pop out of the tip of his feet; he does a handstand and spins, effectively cutting all their throats.

"And done!" he says with a flourish. He clicks his heels and puts all his knives away; he tips his hat down and smiles. "Hows that for a devil?"
