Proposal: Penalty for losing a challenge

Change the sentence in the rule “Yggdrasil” that currently reads “If the attempt fails, the attempting Einherjar may not again attempt a Challenge Post until the next week.” to “If the attempt fails, the Valkyrie who owns the attempting Einherjar may not again send an Einherjar to attempt that Challenge Post until the next week and she loses the number of Acorns that she would have gained had the attempt succeeded.”

perhaps instead of a flat penalty, each challenge has a reward and a penalty made during the application process?

Amnistar, that is what I was originally thinking. I almost implemented it in the first proposal, but I felt like the proposal was getting convoluted (Me? Write a convoluted proposal?) so I left it out to be added later.

My hope is that the Valkyries would make a challenge they would actually attempt, even though you can’t do your own challenge. Making things less flat makes the game more interesting. I will make a proposal to make the challenge rewards and penalties more freeform.
