Proposal: All Charged Up

At 2-6, cannot pass. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 22 Jul 2021 17:53:28 UTC

Add the following subrule to “The Crypt of Dracula” called “Charge”

The Crypt of Dracula has a publicly tracked positive integer Charge which is by default 1

In status replace “If a Vampire Lord’s Puissance is above 13” with “If a Vampire Lord’s Puissance is above (12 plus the crypt’s Charge)” and “If a Vampire Lord’s Puissance is above 25” with “If a Vampire Lord’s Puissance is above (24 plus the crypt’s Charge)”

In “Richardo’s Journey” replace “When the Crypt Awakens, each Vampire Lord who is not Bloodthirsty gains 1 Puissance.” with “When the Crypt Awakens, each Vampire Lord who is not Bloodthirsty gains an amount of Puissance equal to the crypt’s charge. When the Crypt Settles, its charge is increased by 1”

Adding a forcing function that gives us more money the longer the game drags on

This is likely to get out of hand very quickly (you have an automatic increase and a way to accelerate it, and I’d fear that either would be too fast by itself).

I don’t think the end state, in which everyone has far too much Puissance to know what to do with, makes for a particularly interesting game. In particular, I think it’s more likely to delay the end of the dynasty than accelerate it – Puissance is used for both accelerating and delaying actions, after all.

yes you’ve made it clear you don’t like anything I propose simply on principle

I think the most recent round has shown more money makes the game more interesting as it gives people more stuff to do. and I don’t think there are gonna be *that* many rounds left, so I doubt the charge will ever get so absurdly high people have more money than they know what to do with

This could quickly lead to charge going way out of control, because more Puissance means you can build more rooms.

*especially* if someone does a “Roundabout Room next to Cliff Edge” setup and adds something like 7 charge

I feel like someone would be far better off setting a death trap that way

and even if that does happen, is it the end of the world? would just let the map get filled up so Richardo has more energy and can hopefully make it to one of the ritual chambers

anyways i’ll remove the effect if people are really that worried.

“When the Crypt Awakens, each Vampire Lord who is not Bloodthirsty gains an amount of Puissance equal to the crypt’s charge. When the Crypt Settles, its charge is increased by 1” is still there
