Proposal: Dust to Bust

Fewer than a quorum not voting against. Failed 1-7 by Kevan.

Reword the sentence “Upon Dracula being Dusted (as described in the rule “Ritual Chambers”), then the Vampire Lord with the most Blood Mana Crystals (tiebroken by most Influence, and tiebroken by most Puissance if there’s still a tie) at that time achieves victory.” in the rule “Victory” as follows:

Upon Dracula being Dusted (as described in the rule “Ritual Chambers”), then the non-Dust Vampire Lord with the most Blood Mana Crystals (tiebroken by most Influence, and tiebroken by most Puissance if there’s still a tie) at that time achieves victory.

Add a new bullet point to the list in the rule “Power Actions” as follows:

  • Betrayal is a Power Action with a cost of 12. The Vampire Lord carrying it out selects another Vampire Lord and sets that Vampire Lord’s Puissance to 0..

I don’t think you should be able to win if you’re dead. I do think we should be able to stake each other.

Really don’t like betrayal. Feels super unfair for someone to play a good game but get screwed over at the end and have zero ways to counter it

against I think this is unsalvageable; it basically just makes it so that the winner can change on a fluke in the last run (if you happen to get dusted on the same run Dracula dies, no matter how well you played, you just lose).

Hitting 12 Puissance exactly is also impossible to do intentionally, as Puissance gains are random, so being able to stake each other would just be down to luck.

against maybe if it set ur puissance to 1 and u had to be bloodthirsty to do it it would be less random? but even then i’m not sure the mechanic is good or fun

@lemon yeah even then a mechanic that is just removes puissance from the game doesn’t seem fun to me
