Proposal: On A Roll

Withdrawn. Failed by JonathanDark.

In the rule “Judging”, add a subrule named “Bonus” with the following text:

Each Storyteller has a number named Bonus that is privately tracked by the Storyteller and defaults to 0.

As a Virtual Story Action, a Storyteller may send a request to the Storyteller to spend an amount of their Points to get additional Bonus at a rate of 10 Points for each additional Bonus.

In the subrule “Scoring”, replace the text “Set the Total Score for a Fragment to be either one plus the Pending Score for that Fragment” with this text:

Set the Total Score for a Fragment to be either one plus the Pending Score for that Fragment plus that Fragment Author’s Bonus

and in the same rule, add the following step to the end of the Fragment Scoring atomic action:

* Set each Storyteller’s Bonus to 0.

The more successful you’ve been with getting Score for your Fragments, the more influence you can have over your next Fragment being picked to be the one added to The Story, at the cost of losing some of your Points progress. You also get 10% of your Points back that you spent, so it’s not a complete loss.

Probably. I just thought I’d put it out there, see if there’s interest or maybe it will spark a different idea.

against I like that the story comes from multiple players, and there’s not really any mechanical advantage to doing this at the moment. I think that other ways to spend points or earn bonus points could be interesting, though.
