Proposal: Errata

Self-killed. Failed by Brendan.

Add the following to the end of the rule Conclaves:

Any Reviser may Ensure the Integrity of a Conclave - if they have not yet done so for that Conclave - by doing the following three things:

- The Reviser posts a comment to the Conclave naming at their discretion a number of Roles: X Scrutineers, X Infirmarii and X Revisers, where X is one third of the number of Cardinals, rounded down, with no Cardinal having more than one Role in the Conclave.
- The Reviser prefaces that comment with the phrase “It appears Y has made an error”, where Y is the most recent Cardinal who Revised the Roles of the Conclave, or if that does not exist, the Cardinal who called the Conclave. Y may not be the Cardinal who is Ensuring the Integrity of the Conclave.
- The Reviser decreases their Influence by 1 plus the number of times a Cardinal has Ensured the Integrity of the Conclave. The Reviser then increases the Influence of the cardinal Y named above by the same amount.

Change the last sentence of the first paragraph of Conclaves to the following:

The Roles for each Conclave must initially be determined randomly by the Cardinal calling the Conclave, such that no Cardinal has more than one Role in a Conclave.

I made a mistake. “Revised the Roles of the Conclave” was never defined as an action - it should be replaced with “Ensured the Integrity of the Conclave”.

The mechanism is that of “buying out” the previous Reviser - you essentially pay off their debt, then give them +1 Influence.

In a way, this rewards both early and late Revisers, depending on how you want to look at it…

A pyramid scheme with a reward for being the person left holding the can when it collapses. That’s a mechanic I’m not sure I’ve seen before.
