Proposal: Curses!

Vetoed by our fearless leader. —Excalabur

Add the following rule under the name “Curses”

If a Swashbuckler is reduced to 0 GPS by another Swashbuckler, they may inflict a curse on that Swashbuckler by making a post to the blog with a title that begins “Curse of”. The post will specify a specific set of circumstances under which the cursed Swashbuckler will take a DICE5 penalty to their GPS. After those circumstances have been met, the curse expires. A curse also counts as an item of Motley for the cursed Swashbuckler.

Yarr! The world be slidin’ towards the bottom o’ Davy Jones Locker, but it not be slidin’ fast enough, me hearties!

Oh, I like this, I really really do, but your conditions as stated are too broad for me.

What an excellent idea, however.

for Arr, maybe allow the cap’n to veto curses, it be difficult to restrict these things with a rule, without ‘em getting boring.

Better to start with the cursin’ and propose to keelhaul anyone who abused it before the fix, when we fix it, though - this be a good rule. (Although it could also do with specifyin’ how tardily curses can be made.)

I like it, but I don’t.

Every pirate ‘as t’ come across a cursed treasure sometime, but e can’t give a shipmate a curse just by making em a land lubber with no nautical ability whatsoever.

Or a way for the bottom of the pirate food chain to remain at the bottom of the pirate food chain.

I like the idea of curses, but not through duelling.
