In Power Actions replace

* Blood Frenzy is an atomic Power Action with a cost of 7. When a Vampire Lord carries out a Blood Frenzy, they must take the following steps:
** Randomly select a Lit Room that is not Purified. If it contains any Effects that are not “This room is Daunting” or “This room is Familiar”, randomly select one of those Effects and remove it from that Room.
** Randomly select a Lit Room that is not Purified and randomly select a Threat Effect. Add that Effect to that Room.

“not Purified or a Ritual Chamber” would be less ambiguous as “not Purified nor a Ritual Chamber” (otherwise, it’s unclear whether the “not” applies to “or a Ritual Chamber” or not). Apart from that, I like it.

Why are we omitting Ritual Chambers from Blood Frenzy? Is it just because we have one example of a Threat being removed? Or are we adopting an ideological position that the endgame should only be deliberately triggered?

It’s primarily to save people from having to undo the whole Blood Frenzy action if they randomly roll to make one Daunting, which isn’t allowed.

also cause removing features from ritual chambers moves us away from the endgame.

against Because I believe that this and “Disruption Junction” are intended to preemptively block those of us outside Team Jumble/Clucky from interfering with a long-term endgame plan.
