Replace “Blessings” with “Insight” throughout the ruleset, and then replace “a number of Insight” with “an amount of Insight”.

In the rule “Inquisitions”, replace “the square of half the number of members in its Target” with “ten times the square of half the number of members in its Target”.

Add a subrule to “Artifacts”, called “Removal”:-

As a daily action, a Believer may request to remove a specified number of Artifacts from those collected by a Cult, by sending an Order which announces such an intention, including the name of a Cult that he or she belongs to and specifying the number of Artifacts he or she intends to remove. (This number cannot be less than 1 or greater than 10.) If the Auspex has such an Order, he should process it as follows:-

  • If the named Cult has fewer Artifacts than the number specified, then the Believer loses 10 Insight (or, if they have less than 10 Insight, the Believer loses all of their Insight).
  • If the named Cult has a number of Artifacts greater than or equal to the number specified, then it loses a number of Artifacts equal to the number specified, and the Believer gains an equal amount of Insight.
  • The Order is then deleted.

Upon enactment of this rule, each Believer’s Insight shall be set to their previous Blessings value, multiplied by ten.

A flavour tweak of “Blessings” to “Insight” (in a world of conflicting theories, who is doing the blessing?), bumping up its base value ten times and allowing Artifacts to be converted into it. (Leaders can safely convert them at the risk of alienating their followers; followers can try converting them at the risk of being misled about how many Artifacts exist, or just annoying fellow Cult Members and perhaps breaking a Secret Requirement.)
