Proposal: A Matter of Timing

Self-killed. Josh

Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Corruption:

Each Oligarch has an amount of Corruption, which is tracked in the GNDT and defaults to zero.

An Oligarch may, at any time, convert any amount of Power or Credibility into Corruption, at a rate of 5 Power or 1 Credibility to 1 Corruption, or vice-versa. An Oligarch may also, as a daily action, transfer any quantity of their own Corruption to any other Oligarch.

Amend the rule entitled Send in the Peacekeepers to read as follows:

As a daily action, any Oligarch can spend 10 Credibility to Lobby the UN. They may then immediately undertake a UN Action, as detailed below:

* Enact a UN Resolution: The next proposal that Oligarch makes may have [UN] in its title. If it does, any Oligarch who wishes to vote on it must first spend either 1 Credibility or 5 Power. A proposal with [UN] in its title can’t be vetoed.
* Initiate a Special Investigation: If the Oligarch making this UN Action is Seditious, the Despot loses an amount of Power equal to the sum of the Corruption of all Loyal Oligarchs.
* Leak a Memo: If the Oligarch making this UN Action is Loyal, then any one Seditious Oligarch of their choice loses Credibility equal to their Corruption and has their Corruption set to zero.

against Enough stats already, and if “or vice-versa” means that Corruption can be freely converted back into Power or Credibility, this makes the Bank obsolete.

Has there been a successful use of the Bank yet?

Also I’m not sure that I agree with “enough stats already” - we only have two, really, and there’s a general slowdown in activity underway so a shakeup isn’t the worst idea in the world.

against I dislike being punished for having a stat that others can give to you. Not a balance issue, just a personal preference one.

“An Oligarch may, at any time, convert any amount of Power or Credibility into Corruption, at a rate of 5 Power or 1 Credibility to 1 Corruption, or vice-versa.”

This and Clucky’s scam could be bad.
