Proposal: I Feel It Too

Add a new rule, called “The Doom” as follows:

Any Insane Survivor may, as a Daily Action, create a post with the title “The Doom Approaches!”. This post is known as a Portent, and should announce that the Survivor in question predicts the approach of The Doom, the nature of which they may speculate upon as they wish. During the 48 hours following this post, no further Portents may be posted.

Any comment on that post which begins “Doom!” is taken as the commenting Survivor agreeing that the Doom is impending. The Survivor who made the post is automatically considered to have agreed in this way.

After 48 hours, any Survivor may resolve the Portent as follows: If fewer than four Survivors have agreed that the Doom is impending then each Survivor who agreed loses 1 Sanity. If four or more Survivors agreed then all Survivors who did not agree lose 1 Sanity each (whether or not they commented). If all Survivors commented and all agreed that the Doom is impending then the Doom Arrives!

If the Doom Arrives then the lifeboat temporarily capsizes and before it can be righted each Survivor loses all of their Items and each Sane Survivor loses 3 Sanity, to a minimum of 7. Within 24 hours of this event each Survivor may choose one Item they lost in this way and return it to their possession.

Two motivations for this one. First, Sanity seems to have become a Good Thing within the Nomic. This is a shame, since retaining Sanity is very grindy. This proposal lets the mad dudes have some fun. Second and more importantly, more hints at Cthuloid nastiness! :-D

(This is a slightly tweaked reproposal, see the comments of “I Feel It In My Bones” below.)
