Add a new dynastic rule called “Predictions” with the following text

Each Vampire Lord has a Prediction, which is a publicly tracked string that is either the name of a room or empty and defaults to being empty. If a Vampire Lord’s prediction is ever something which isn’t empty of the name of a room, it becomes empty.

When the crypt next settles, remove this paragraph from the ruleset. The rest of this rule is flavourtext.

If they have not done so since the last time any Vampire Lord took a Power Action or Richardo entered the crypt, a Vampire Lord may change their prediction to any valid value.

Add the following step after the “If Richardo’s current room contains a Threat or Denizen, add the “This room is Daunting.” Threat to it.” step in Richardo’s Journey

For each Vampire Lord whose Prediction matches Richardo’s current room, give that Vampire Lord 2 Puissance. Then set the Prediction of every Vampire Lord to be empty.

for I don’t see this hurting anything (unless it becomes an excessive burden on Josh, which I don’t think it will), and it creates a new Puissance source which is affected to some extent by player skill (and Puissance can be a little hard to come by sometimes at the moemnt).

My only real concern is that it will make the table in the sidebar less readable, but we may be able to get around that issue with some creative abbreviations in column names.

against Isn’t “make an informed guess about where Richardo will go” the game that we’re already playing?

@Kevan sure, but oftentimes people don’t really have the money to do that effectively. This provides a bit of fun for everyone.

Gambling rarely favors people who are already low on resource.

it adds more variance to the equation. the more variance, the harder it is for leaders to stay ahead.
