Proposal: Not Falling Back

Withdrawn and is failed -SingularByte

Add the following to the rule Fleshmancy:

Once between each Beat, but not as a Beat action, each Demiurge may double the Health of each Phalanx for whom they are the owner.

A quick anti-stockpiling measure - spending your Beat Actions early makes for stronger long-term outcomes.

“Once per Beat”

i’m pretty sure that also applies retroactively so if the heartbeat is at 3 for example, you can double your phalanx’s health three times

even if that isn’t the case, I don’t like this since all it does is change the thing you’re stockpiling

A good idea, but a bit opaque if the only way to see if a rival is still able perform this during a given Beat is to comb through four days of wiki history. Could we make it part of every Beat Action (which would make it even more anti-stockpiling)?

[Kevan] “could we make it part of every Beat Action”

if you mean making this happen every time you do a beat action, that just… goes entirely against the anti-stockpiling nature of this proposal

Oh, yes, confused myself there.

I don’t think this is the right way to do anti-stockpiling, since this just encourages stockpiling phalanxes, not beat actions

plus, “once between each beat” could still be scammable

I really don’t see how without the kind of linguistic contortion that BN seems to be only occasionally fond of

imperial How many Beats are we expecting? What’s 2^10 again?

lendunistus: Omnipotence he/him

22-06-2022 14:02:00 UTC

[Brendan] 2 to the power of 10 is 1024
if the expected lifespan of a dynasty is a month, maybe 8-10 beats?

[Josh] was thinking of something like doubling between past beats since as far as I can tell, there’s nothing that prevents that

Josh: he/him

22-06-2022 14:09:07 UTC

How would that be “between each beat”?

SingularByte: he/him

My own scam here would be that Beat isn’t defined in the ruleset. The closest is Beat Action and we could end up with a dozen of those each Heartbeat. That’s a lot of opportunities to double.
