Proposal: Rules of War

Reaches 48 hours but has failed to reach quorum. Ends at 4-6 and is failed. -SingularByte

Add the following as a new rule to the ruleset called “Combat”:

Each Demiurge has an amount of Glory, which is a publicly tracked integer that defaults to 0.

Assaulting for N (where N is some integer) is an atomic action with the following steps:
- Reduce the Guardian’s Health by N.
- Gain N Glory.
- Provoke the Guardian

Add a subrule to “Combat” called “Counterattack” with the following text:

Provoking the Guardian is an atomic action with the following steps:
- Reduce your Health by 15.

If the Proposal “Badump” was enacted, replace the number “15” in the subrule “Counterattack” with “5 times The Heartbeat of Creation.”


Introducing an “Assault” mechanic.  I plan on expanding Counterattack in my next proposal (and someone should add a way to attack!) but this is just a simple proposal to get things started.

The Guardian feels a tad weak in this proposal to be honest. If it takes a beat each time to attack it (which I suspect it will), it would take literal real world months of you attacking it non-stop for you to actually die to counterattacks.

Yeah, that’s fair; I just didn’t want to start off with a super high number!  Going to edit this proposal and “Defense Mechanism” to make the guardian a bit more dangerous.

against Uh, there’s no ceiling on N under this writing, right? It doesn’t actually cost anything to make N infinite?

@Brendan This doesn’t actually let people take the Assault action yes.  Presumably, there would be some other rule that says (e.g) “as a daily action Demiurges may Assault for 5” or some variant thereof.

*yet, not yes.

Thinking about things, it might be better if combat mechanics were more generalised rather than being highly specific to the sole enemy in the game.
