Proposal: Leonardo II: The Wrath of Khan

Timed out and passed 8-3 Enacted by Chivalrybean

Add to “The Final Battle”:

The statistic “Tinkering” is ignored for purposes of Skirmishes.

Add a new Dynastic rule “Devices”, as follows:

An Einherjar who has a Tinkering statistic of at least +1 is referred to as a “Tinkerer”.

A Valkyrie who owns a particular Tinkerer may, as a Weekly action, cause that Tinkerer to attempt to create a Device.  To do so, the Valkyrie announces in comments to the GNDT that the Valkyrie is causing the named Tinkerer to attempt to create a Device.  The Valkyrie then rolls DICE12 in the GNDT a number of times equal to that Tinkerer’s Tinkering statistic.  Each time the result of the roll is exactly 1, that Tinkerer is deemed to have earned one Device point.  (For example, if that Tinkerer has a Tinkering score of +5, then the Valkyrie rolls 1DICE12 five times, and if the results are 3,4,1,1,10 then that Tinkerer is deemed to have earned two Device points).  If that Tinkerer earns more than zero Device points in the attempt, then the Valkyrie who owns that Tinkerer shall make a story post reporting that the named Tinkerer has created a Device worth the number of Device points earned in the attempt, whereupon that Tinkerer’s Device points are reset at zero.  (Tinkerers may not bank Device points; all Device points earned must be reported the day that they are earned).  The story post may also suggest to the Allfather what the name and the game effects of the Device should be. 

After a Valkyrie posts such a story post, the Allfather shall make a story post reporting that the Tinkerer in question has made a Device and specifying the game effects of the device.  The game effects are within the discretion of the Allfather, however the Allfather is encouraged to consider the number of Device points used to create the Device in assigning game effects.  The Device does not exist and has no game effects until the Allfather makes the story post announcing it.

A Valkyrie who owns more than one Tinkerer may cause any one or more of them to attempt to create a Device in accordance with the foregoing.

A Device is considered to be held by the Tinkerer who made it, unless the Valkyrie owning that Tinkerer makes a story post reporting that the Device has been transferred to another Einherjar owned by that Valkyrie.

against The same problem it still has. The effects the Allfather chooses; a check there must be.

I like it, but I don’t want to be single-handedly responsible for accidentally breaking the game.  Perhaps they shouldn’t come into actual existence until 48 hours after I approve them.  And “Oops Proposals” should have the power to quickly undo my mistakes.

If the effects are kept simple—things like “Award acorns to this person, deduct statistics from that Einherjar, destroy that Device, kill that Eeinherjar” then there shouldn’t be any danger.
