Proposal: Overhunting

popular 4 to 0. Enacted by Derrick.

Adminned at 22 Mar 2019 13:04:41 UTC

In the Hunting section of the Ruleset, add the following after “Remove the Target from the list of monsters in the Wilds it is in.”:

**Optionally decrease the frequency of the Monster’s monster type in the Bestiary by one.

Add the following to the Monsters section of the Ruleset:

A monster type’s frequency may never be changed to a negative number.

This gives the option for us to shift the balance of Monsters to stronger ones and phase out bats/cockroaches/etc. If people like this mechanic, we could add items and/or spells that also adjust with frequency, or some consequence of total extinction. I’d like to add some more Monsters in, but the pool is getting crowded.

Slick mechanic.

Frequency is already defined as an integer between 0 and 10, and when you try to lower a number below its lowest valid value it stays its lowest valid value, I believe.

But good call on getting rid of all these bats. for

for Agreed. A pair of Flying Boots would be nice, though.
