What if we declared that in Thermo, any player of Thermo or any other Nomic we want to trade can be At The Market, and that anyone At The Market could give things to anyone else who was there? Of course, all games in question would want to put limits on this - things like passing through customs to allow for tariffs and currency exchanges, or a cost to Market time so people
spend some of their time not At The Market?

I'm thinking of doing this by adding a few rules as follows:

15.1 Any player may declare emself to be At The Market by announcing on the
official mailing list that e wishes to do so.

15.2 Any player of B Nomic may declare emself to be At The Market by stating eir intent to do so on the Thermo mailing list, subject to the rules of B

15.3 Players of different Nomics who are At The Market may give their
posessions to one another; such posessions are destroyed in one Nomic and
created in the other.

We can probably find some Things to destroy to make up for this, if we
decide to implement it.

If I understand your ruleset, every time anything is created, something else must be destroyed; if I go to the Market and give all my stuff to you, doesn't that either fail or destroy lots of stuff in your game? Under this wording, at least, you can't decide that you don't want to take my stuff yet, so you can't necessarily wait for something useless to destroy...
