Proposal: Statement of Faith

Reached quorum 8 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 30 Oct 2020 09:33:27 UTC

Reset all Monk’s Creeds. Monks who have already performed the weekly action to change their creed this week may do it again.

Replace the list of Creeds with the following

life: a Monk knows existence is preferred - Effect: Whenever a Monk with this creed increases the stockpile of a resource by the result of a dynasty action, they increase it by an additional 1
balance: a Monk knows there can’t be one without another - Effect: Whenever a Monk with this creed performs a type of Tile Action which they have not already performed this week, its turn cost is reduced by 1 turn to a minimum of 1
peace: a Monk knows harmony - Effect: Whenever a Monk with this creed completes a Motif, they earn 1 additional guilder
truth: a Monk knows where to go - Effect: Whenever a Monk with this creed spends three or more turns during a single Tile Action, they earn 1 guilder
resolve: a Monk knows how to get there - Effect: Whenever a Monk with this creed performs the action to increase their turns, they earn 10 turns instead of 8.

These seem roughly balanced, though I’m not a huge fan of Truth to be honest I just couldn’t think of anything else for it

“by the result of a dynasty action” is there to rule out weirdness where if an admin with life enacts a proposal, it doesn’t trigger the life gain

against Resolve is so much incredibly better than any of the alternatives that this is effectively just a mechanism to increase the turn income value. Balance and life are particularly weak.

for Increasing default turn income with the option to swap it out for other powers seems okay for now.

@Josh: given the average length of a dynasty being a month and a half, resolve can be in effect between 6 to 5 weeks, gaining between 12 and 10 extra turns over the course of the dynasty. i think that balance has a greater upper limit of turn savings.
