Proposal: More Powers

2-2. Timed Out.—Chronos

Adminned at 31 Oct 2005 05:34:56 UTC

If Proposal: Strange Powers didn’t pass, this Proposal does nothing.


In the Powers rule, change

Deities start with no Powers, but may create a new Power by spending 1 Quintessence and constructing a new Power from a combination of the components listed below, and giving it a name of their choice. Each component has a Worship or a Might cost - a constructed power must have at least as much Worship as Might. If a Power uses any Global Might, it must also have at least as much Global Worship. A Power may only contain one instance of each component.

Deities start with no Powers, but may create a new Power by spending 1 Quintessence and constructing a new Power from a combination of the components listed below, and giving it a name of eir choice.

At any time, a Deity may modify a Power e eirself has created, by spending 1 Quintessence. A Power can only be modified by adding components to it.

Each component has a Worship or a Might cost - a Power being constructed or modified must have at least as much Worship as Might. If a Power uses any Global Might, it must also have at least as much Global Worship.

If a Power has a Component which gives a variable amount of Worship or Might, the balance condition between those amounts (Worship >= Might and Global Worship >= Global Might) must be true when the power is being used, instead of when it is being constructed.

A Power may only contain one instance of each component.


Add the following components to the list in that rule:

* Popularity: Power can only be used if the Deity doing so is the Godhead. (+20 Global Worship)

* Universal: This power can be used by any Deity, not only by the one who created it. (+5 Global Worship)

* Awe: Your people adores you. Power can only be used in a City where you have Worshippers. Figures X to the number of Worshippers you have in that city, divided by 100, rounded down - for example, both 1.01 and 1.99 are rounded to 1.00. (+X City Worship).

* Non-reliable. You must roll a DICE10 when trying to use this power. X is the result of that dice roll. Only usable if this Power is also either a Holy Day or a Festival. (+X Global Worship if it’s a Holy Day; + 3X Global Worship if it’s a Festival).



* Exclusive: Only usable if this power is also Universal. No Power may be created or modified that would result in 2 Powers, one Exclusive and one non-Exclusive, having exactly the same components but for the Exclusive component. No Exclusive Power may be created or modified that would result in exactly duplicating another Exclusive Power. Whenever a Deity other than the one who created this Power uses it, the one who created it gains 1 Quintessence (+20 Global Might).

* Transmorphing: You can change roles without spending any Quintessence (+50 Global Might).


Voters on this proposal may list any Components they feel are abusable, along with their vote - if any Component is considered abusable by three or more Deities, it shall be removed from the list when this proposal is enacted.
