Weird­ness Points

TagLast edit: 4 Aug 2020 12:02 UTC by Multicore

Weirdness Points posit that the ability to convince people to believe, do, or respect something that sounds weird is a limited resource.

Someone with dozens of unconventional beliefs and habits will seem too eccentric to be worth paying attention to, but someone who pushes one weird thing while otherwise being respectable has a shot at convincing the people around them to take it seriously too.

You have a set amount of “weird­ness points”. Spend them wisely.
