Proposal: Hellish Rebuke

Adminned at 14 Jan 2022 03:50:27 UTC

if “Staunton Lick” does not pass, this proposal does nothing

In “the Campfire at the end of Hell” replace

At any time, a Tripper may give any positive amount of their Coins to another Tripper.

with

At any time, a Tripper may give any positive amount of their Coins to another Tripper, provided the targeted Tripper has a positive number of coins

Add the following to “The Campfire at the End of Hell”

The Campfire Demon has a positive integer power, which by default is 5 and is publicly tracked.

As a daily communal action, a Tripper may carry out the following atomic action:

* Randomly select a Tripper who has a positive number of coins
* Reduce that Tripper’s coins by the Campfire Demon’s power, to a minimum of 0
* Increase the Campfire Demon’s power by 1

Quorum Reached. Passes 7-1.—Clucky

against I think a human kingmaker is more interesting than a coinflip-based NPC one, if we get to the point where two players both have slightly less than half the marbles and other players are considering how to break that tie.

Same goes for factions, in fact: we’ve just seen a few possible factions evaporate with Jumble unidling and adding 5 Coins to the economy, where those groups of players no longer quite have over half.

Having a demon which knocks coins back out is just going to randomly put one of those factions back into the lead at some point (whichever one was lucky enough not to have any of its members hit), with no negotiation or skill required.

@Josh awfully nice of you to provide enthusiastic support for this idea, leading me to support your original proposal, and then withdraw your support for this idea once your proposal passes

Yeah, well, I wasn’t expecting to have it immediately weaponised against me, what can I say

I am leaning towards against unless someone wants to throw me 7 or so coins so I’m not stuck at 0 and so the demon can’t insta-knock me out.
