Round 2, Dave's turn
#324 (Eric): "To be or not to be"
Within Three Rivers Nomic there exist entities. No Tri-nomic entity may affect the universe outside of a nomic. In general, entities are controlled by real people who exist outside the game, by other entities within the game, or by a random factor such as the roll of dice. Unless otherwise specified by the rules, an entity may not own or be owned by other entities, may not vote, and is controlled by real people outside of the game.
If any entity performs an action which is not in accordance with the rules as they currently exist (interpreted in accordance with currently accepted game custom) then that action has no effect on the game state.
