How (not) to Cheat at Musical Chairs

Change
“If the military situation has been greater than 3 or less than negative 3 for 48 hours, and no new court allies have been associated with for 48 hours, a wizard with more influence than any other wizard has achieved victory.”

If the military situation has been greater than 3 or less than negative 3 for 48 hours, and no court allies, aside from Councilor Arnok, have been associated with for 12 hours, a wizard with more influence than each other wizard has achieved victory.

Add “Councilor Arnok” to the list of “the possible identities of Court Allies”, then add him (Councilor Arnok) to a random Wizard’s court allies, with 5 trust.

He emerges from throneroom shadows, whispering words of finality.

This change fixes an “any” bug and could also shorten the timeline of the endgame considerably.

12 hours is way too little for reaction. 48 hours is fine, it’s the mechanic itself that demands reaction that is janky.

This is not a proposal

Right, thx derrick.

[Cuddlebeam] Ok, well, what has been done before? I’d like to speed up the current end state, but I’ve only been around for one ending so far. Hmm, maybe we could end duels and campaigns after the last campaign is concluded? Then a tiebreaker would be needed, but that’s not hard.
