Proposal: Inevitable Decay

Quorum reached. Passes 5-0—Clucky

Adminned at 15 Jul 2021 17:43:58 UTC

If “Creature Feature” enacts, change all instances of “Feature” in this proposal to “Effect”.

In “Power Actions”, change

Randomly select a Lit Room. If it contains any Features, randomly select one of those Features and remove it from that Room.


Randomly select a Lit Room. If it contains any Features that are not “This room is Daunting” or “This room is Familiar”, randomly select one of those Features and remove it from that Room.

If “Penolpa’s Purification Project” enacts, change “Randomly select a Lit Room” to “Randomly select a Lit Room that is not Purified” in both bulletpoints of the Blood Frenzy Atomic Action.

Move “This room is Familiar. (+3)” from the list of Threats to the list of Glyphs and Sigils.

Blood Frenzy being able to remove Daunting or Familiar seems…not great to me.

Also, Frenzy hitting a Purified room just wastes time.

I will vote FOR on this, unless some big mistake is discovered.

edited proposal to also account for purified rooms because that would also suck

Why not just move those features out of the list of Threats?

Or rather, also move them out of the list of threats, so that they can’t be bestowed by Blood Frenzy either.

No, these seem fine as Frenzy effects, even if Daunting is a bit extreme.

removing Daunting would be bad though

I think Daunting and Familiar should be out of Threats. It makes no narrative sense for them to be included in BF tbh - they’re both about Richardo’s psychological state, and we have no mechanic that makes Bloodthirty vampires psychic yet

Daunting could be interpreted as literally cursing the room now that we have the Sinister->Wretched->Cursed progression.  I agree that Familiar should be moved out of Threats, though.

Added that in, and also made sure it would still work even if Creature Feature enacts.

[Josh] I’d said Daunting works within and without of Richardo’s mind: it can be a room that just looks intimidating (and was maybe even built that way), or it can be one that Richardo has bad memories of, or has been warned about by Koda or Drol. A blood-soaked vampire crashing through a room in a way that now makes it look Daunting seems narratively fine.
