Story Post: My Preciousss… Eureka!

Item: A Victorian Ring
Effect: If there are more than 6 Survivors and no Survivor has done so that week, any Survivor owning a Victorian Ring (aka a Bearer) may Rule Them All. They shall lose 2 Sanity and Vote on a Votable Matter with a comment containing the text “RING”. That vote counts as 3 Votes, without changing Quorum. If they change their Vote, the new one shall not be counted three times. Every day, if no Survivor has done so, any Survivor may reduce every Bearer’s Sanity by 1.

“They shall lose 2 Sanity” - the Bearer, or “Them All”?

This seems a little bizarre thematically, but maybe there’s some mileage in having bizarre rules only apply to the insane…

Ditto the confusion. And what does “every Bearer” mean? Surely there can only be 1. I like the idea of giving Insane Survivors more power.

[Anduril] It is possible to have multiple copies of an Item in play.

[kevan] good point. I may argue that Them All is capitalized and thus traditionally a key word, but tradition is not a rule. If you vote against only for that, I’ll repropose. If you don’t like the theme twist, it’s ok.

for This appeals to the part of me that likes possibly abusable but not obviously broken stuff. :-D

Affects CFJs. Surely it should be limited to proposals and eureka posts?

And DoV’s against for that.

against Semantics aside, this is probably too powerful - should we lose a couple more players and see quorum drop to five, the Ringbearer would only need two accomplices to get an “I win” proposal enacted.

against Yeah, this is much too powerful.

against This will allow two Pocket-owners to cooperate to pass an arbitrary proposal.
