Proposal: Caught Holding The Bag

Timed out 2 votes to 0 with 1 unresolved Imperial DEF and 1 unresolved regular DEF. Enacted by Kevan.

In the subrule “Notoriety”, after the text “If result is 1 then check fails”, add the following text:

, one randomly-selected Pouch (if they have any Pouches) is removed from their inventory,

If the proposal “Being Caught” was not enacted, then in the subrule “Notoriety”, after the text “If result is 1 then check fails”, add the following text:

, they lose 10 Notoriety,

As Clucky pointed out in another comment, it’s easy to make Notoriety not a big deal if most of your Florins are in Pouches. This removes the safety net and makes Notoriety a much more meaningful mechanic.

To me, it would make more sense to word it in a way such that the amount lost is equal to (one random pouch + half your current florins)

This makes it better to store money in pouches, as you only on average lose 25% of that florins in pouches rather than half, but the way this is worded you’d only lose 12.5% of pouched Florins which still feels a bit strong.

Makes sense. Changed to simply remove 1 randomly-selected Pouch.

does mean it doesn’t go to other players but I actually think thats totally fine the money going to other players is a weird mechanic anyways

Do we want to consider adding the effects of https://blognomic.com/archive/being_caught here if it doesn’t get passed?

Maybe. I’m not sure if losing half Notoriety is the right amount. I think I’d prefer a fixed amount.

Ok, I settled on losing 10 Notoriety when failing the Notoriety check. I think that’s fair enough.
