Proposal: Prayers: Instant Results Now Guaranteed (With Enough Faith)

Reached quorum 5 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

In the rule The Queue, subrule Declaring, immediately after the bullet point reading ‘Optionally carry out the Disastermancy atomic action, if possible.’ add the following bullet point:

*Optionally spend 10 Piety to cause any Non-Flooded Building to become a Flooded Building

Piety seems fairly underutilized to me and I’m not a fan of how slowly we’re approaching endgame. Thought I might speed it up a bit

Kinda seems like this could lead to some feels-bad gameplay. Not feeling this one, but I’ll leave it up for the edit window.

I’ll explain further, since I was short on time when I wrote that first comment. So far, this dynasty has been pretty closely following a Euro game style, with not many of the players directly interacting with each other. The most direct form of interaction there has been so far has been praying, and that involves a good bit of luck, in addition to being anonymous. This new mechanic completely breaks from that trend, allowing players to directly attack each other. Combined with the fact that this is in addition to praying instead of replacing it, is guaranteed to work every time, and due to its cost is only readily accessible to a minority of players, that leads me to believe that this proposal is not right for this game right now and therefore against.

We’re at the endgame here, and this is very expensive. I don’t think that this is going to turn the game into a beggar thy neighbour game.  for
