Rulings Documents

Post by zarathustra » Sat Jan 27, 2007 6:09 pm

So it's time to start collecting the rulings documents together. Currently there is a byzantine tangle of 8 documents (just added the PEF):

Card Errata and Rulings
Complete Errata Listing
CoL Tournament Policy
CRF Intro
ICE and CoE Digests (over 100)
Turn Sequence Rulings
Tournament Rulings
Play and Example File

We want to boil these down to just four documents:

Rules/Rulings by Card Title
Rules/Rulings by Term
Tournament Rulings
Examples File


The Turn Sequence Rulings will be incorporated into the Full Player Turn Summary in the Universal Rules.



Anyone interested in working on this project, please let me know.

I have a suggestion/question. Would a wiki be a good interface for this project? That way everyone working on the project could have rights to edit the documents and there would be a log of changes so you could revert to an older version if needed. Of course after these documents are finished, we can include non-wiki versions for download and distribution. I was thinking of this more as an idea for development, but I guess it could be left that way for viewing too. If you're intereted in trying it out, I can set one up on the server to play around with at least.

If you're unfamiliar with what a wiki is, check out www.wikipedia.org.

Okay, the wiki is set up here. You'll need to sign up, and then I will grant you access to edit/create/move files around on the wiki. If you're new to using a wiki, there is a user's guide on the main page.

Until I give you editing access, you will only be able to view current content on there, so if it takes me more than a day, just shoot me a PM and I will get you added to the list of editors. But you need to sign up for an account first. :)

All ICE and CoE rulings digests are now on the wiki. The more I put stuff in, the more I like the wiki setup.

EDIT: All of the old files are now up there (CRF, Tournament Policy, all the old rulings, etc.) I still need to do some editing on them (or I guess it's called "wikifying" them), but all the data is there now.

EDIT: The Universal Rules are now wikified.

I just added Joe's PEF as well. Sadly, I have no idea how to wikify it. Sorry for my total technical ineptitude.

In any case, the idea now is to split his document into the rulings bit and the examples bit. The rulings will be incorporated into the new CRF, while the remaining examples will become a new PEF that is purer in content.

Joe has suggested that the Universal Rulesbook incorporate the Tournament Rulings as well, since pretty much everyone plays by them.

I think this is a good idea, though perhaps we should have two versions of the Universal Rules:
(1) one made just from the 7 inserts + errata, and
(2) (1) + Tournament Rulings.

We can indicate when these documents are made public that (2) is generally used by all players, though it does have things not in the original 7 rules inserts.

How does that sound?

Alternatively, we could JUST make (2) and indicate with footnotes how it differs from (1).

I like the idea of making two versions is better. Reading notes everywhere might be annoying IMO.

No problem! I don't mind doing the wikifying. :)
