Add a new Human to the list in the rule “Humans:”

  • The Harbinger—40

Add a new item to the list in the rule “Meddling:”

  • Pronounce: This action can only be taken by a Shifter taking the for of the Harbinger, and only once per New Day. Choose one Faction. Announce in the comments of the latest New Day Dawning post that this Faction has been chosen to raise its banner over the castle. Once such a Pronouncement has been made, Shifters may not change their Alignment until the next New Day. If one Shifter who is a member of the named Faction has a higher Cover than all other members of that Faction, and is not the Harbinger, that Shifter has achieved victory.

Do I misunderstand this or will this enable any team of two Shifters to declare victory? (Align themselves to a otherwise empty faction or one with Shifters of less cover and become Harbinger and then pronounce.)

Factions are secret, so there’s no way to know whether a faction is empty or not. The Porter can also forestall this kind of move by Ejecting, even if someone does manage to achieve 40 Cover.

imperial Explicitly abstaining, will leave this one to the players.
