Proposal: Eldritch secrets, like a boss

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Amend “by making a blog post with the tag “[Monster]” with it stating what Monstrosities it has” to

by making a blog post with the tag “[Monster]” with it stating what Visible Monstrosities it has (if it has any) and privately informing the Priest of what Hidden Monstrosities it has (if it has any). This private informing should be done by Private Message.

Amend “Monstrosities are the following:” and its following list of Monstrosities to:

Monstrosities are the following (if it has its effect listed as “New Action”, it means that the Monster can perform it as a Battle Action):
- Bulk: Max HP is increased by 100. This is Visible.
- Fever Aura: Whenever you perform a Battle Action, all non-Monster Adventurers lose 5 HP. This is Visible.
- Rotting Presence: Whenever you perform a Battle Action, the Cathedral loses 35 HP. This is Visible.
- Terrifying Visage: New Action: Terrify: Reduce any Adventurer’s HP by 30. That Adventurer’s next Battle Action during this Battle is (and can only be) Retreat.
- Voidwalker: New Action: Teleporting Strike: All Adventurers whose last Battle Action was Retreat lose 50 HP.
- Reverse Mother: New Action: Unbirth: All Adventurers with 20 or less HP have their HP set to 0 and cannot be Revived during this Battle.

A Monstrosity that is not Visible is Hidden, and Monstrosities are by default Hidden. A Monster should not comment that they use a certain Hidden Monstrosities’ Battle Action (when they actually don’t have it) on a Battle post as to mislead.

Nice idea.

“That Adventurer’s next Battle Action is (and can only be) Retreat.” seems a bit tricky for carrying forward into future battles, and for saying that an action “is” something even if it’s not been taken. (It also interacts badly with the current definition of the Vanguard’s atomic action as “this is also a Battle Action”, although the Battle Stations CfJ removes that.)

“and cannot be Revived during this Battle”. What’s “Revived” meant to mean here? An undefined keyword for later, or any HP-gain mechanic?

Alright, fixed the carrying over thing.

Revived is just a stub for now.

Yes, I’d have expected it to be more like “That Adventurer’s next Battle Action during this Battle shall be Retreat”.

I like the new mechanics. If I understand this correctly, the Hidden Monstrosities of each Monster will be revealed only through use.
