2. ThermodyNomic introduces a Grid-like system, and there are teleports between the two grids. Anyone on a foreign grid carries eir stuff with emand is bound by the new movement rules. Integrates the two Nomics to agreater degree, and gets more confusing, but allows for trade in really straightforward ways.-So with that, we could fairly easily link B, Thermo, Agora, and Nomicron to each other. Could be interesting, especially the prospect of using different grids to your advantage - maybe it's faster at the moment to go through Agora to the B Nomic gate than it is to just strike out for B Nomic, for example.-How are other grids scaled? I got the impression that Nomicron's was not a Grid upon which players could walk around, but more of a theoretical world where each square represented a large tract of land, an entire estate by itself.Thermo does not yet have a grid. Therefore, B Nomic can have some input into what its scale is, as part of the motivation would be the sheer coolness ofgrid-linkage.We seem to be doing a bit of both - the grid was player-scaled up until Armies arrived; now it's actually kind of absurd - a space small enoughto be filled by a single player so that no other player can enter is somehow large enough to hold an entire Army?Maybe they're armies of elves.
Some of them actually are. But then again, some players, myself included, are also Elves, and I'm not particularly smaller than, say, an Ogre... Well, 90 vs 300, I guess, but still, my 90... uh... cubic units are enough to keep other players out. Yet somehow I can get an army of many of Elves in a space that could only hold me if I were there. For that matter, I can get an army of Ogres in said space. That doesn't seem right, somehow.
