Proposal: Blood in the Cauldron

At 1-5, fewer than a quorum not voting against. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 25 Jul 2021 14:22:43 UTC

Add the following to the first paragraph of “Status”

Bloodthirsty Vampire Lords may perform the Distilling Mysterious Action despite the restriction on which Mysterious Actions Bloodthirsty Vampire Lord can perform, provided they have enough Puissance to pay the cost, but if doing so would set their Puissance to a value higher than 1, their Puissance instead set to 1

What’s the idea behind this? It looks tactical, but I don’t understand what you’re trying to achieve.

The thing I’m trying to achieve here is to allow bloodthirsty vampire lords to distill, but balancing it by making distilling more expensive for them

It is hard to imagine a circumstance where this is a better deal than just Frenzying down to being non-Bloodthirsty and then paying 2 for a normal Distill.

Perhaps this is an attempt at a scam in which Bloodthirsty Vampire Lords can Distil despite not being able to afford the Influence cost? If so, I don’t think it works, but you can sort-of read the rule as though the Influence cost is a restriction.

Also, “their Puissance instead set to 1” is missing a verb, and the second instance of “Bloodthirsty Vampire Lord” should be plural.

Finally, Distilling is not actually a Power Action, so the rule as written has no referent.

against I don’t see any reason anyone would ever use this; it costs a minimum of 13 Puissance, as opposed to 9 for Blood Frenzy + Distil.

against Per Ais; at best inefficient, at worst a scam.
