Selection of the Judges
Let there be an Official Document known as the Measure of Acuity. Let
there be a quantity of entities known as the Acuitix. The Measure may
contain Acuitii. These Acuitii may be considered to be the property
This document shall contain only player names followed by integers,
one such pair per line. Each of these integers shall be known as the
Acuity of the player which they immediately follow.
If a player's name is not listed in this Document, its name shall be
added to this document, followed by an Acuity of 1. If a player
leaves the game, the line containing its name shall be removed.
The Custodian of the Bar shall accurately maintain this document and
distribute a facsimile of it to all players as soon as possible after
When the rules call for selection of a Judge, the following
numbered events shall immediately occur in order.
- All players' Acuity shall increase by 1.
A Judge shall be selected at random from among all players with
a positive Acuity who are at that time Qualified with respect
to that Judgement. Each of these players shall have a (Acuity
of that player) / (Total Acuity of all players with positive
Acuity Qualified w.r.t. the judgement) chance of being
selected. If no Judge is selectable by this method, one shall
be selected randomly among all players, with an equal chance
- Each player shall lose 10%, rounded down to the next integer,
of all Acuitii that they own.
- The Custodian of the Bar shall reveal the identity of the Judge
to all players as soon as possible.
Within one week of the return of a Judgement, all players
but the Judge may inform the Custodian whether they think
the Judgement was SOUND or UNSOUND. The Judge shall gain 1
Acuity for every player who finds the Judgement SOUND in
this manner, and lose 1 Acuity for every player who finds it
UNSOUND in this manner.
Incorporates the "Qualification" concept and fixes several bugs --
- Explicitly states that the CotB must maintain the MoA.
- Changes "When Judgement is called for" to "When the rules call
for selection of a Judge". The earlier wording could be
problematic if a second judge were needed.
- Requires the CotB, instead of the Scorekeeper, to reveal the
identity of the judge.
