Proposal: Frog Chow

Reached quorum 8 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan. Final clause accidentally has no effect because that ruletext is in “Stables” rather than “Creature”.

Replace “cost” with “Upkeep” throughout the dynastic ruleset.

Enact a new rule, “Food”:-

Each Wizard has an amount of Food stockpiled for their creatures, tracked in the GNDT and defaulting to zero. As a weekly action, the King may increase every Wizard’s Food by 10.

In the rule “Creature”, if it exists, replace “Once every 72 hours, a Wizard may mutate a creature in another wizard’s stable and add the resulting creature to the stable of the wizard who mutated the creature.” with:-

A Wizard may mutate a Creature in another Wizard’s Stable by spending an amount of Food equal to that Creature’s Upkeep; the resulting Creature is added to the mutator’s own Stable.

I like this; can I suggest that all or part of the Food payment be made to the source Wizard rather than vanishing?

If payment goes to the source Wizard I think we’d need to time-limit it again, otherwise Wizard A and Wizard B could quickly evolve 20-cost creatures by trading money back and forth.

I think the implication is that the new beast requires that food.

Paying the wizard whose creature you copy is a strong mechanic, rewarding wizards with desirable creatures.

Right now food looks like an action economy, not a scoring system, and action economies are often good ideas.

Wait a minute, are we not keeping the “Once every 72 hours” part?
