Proposal: Tactics

Timed Out 4 to 1. Enacted by Derrick.

Adminned at 08 Jul 2019 13:43:33 UTC

Create a new rule called “Tactics”:

When a Wizard submits their list of Creatures for a Battle (Duel, Campaign, etc), they may instead fill one of that list’s Creature slots with a Tactic. A Tactic has 0 Strength unless otherwise stated. A Wizard’s Panache is equal to the Upkeep of the Quality of their Underling. If their Underling is Blank, their Panache is 0. A Wizard can only use Tactics with a Panache Requirement that is equal to their Panache value, or their Panache value +/- 1.

The following is a list of all valid Tactics, written as [name]([Panache Requirement])[Effect]:

- Druid’s Concoction (-2): All Creatures with more than 5 Strength during this Battle are instead considered to have 5 Strength.
- Stealth Tactics (-1): All of your Stealthy Creatures gain +3 Strength
- Bait X (0): Clearly name a Creature Type for the purpose of this Tactic when submitting this. If the opposing Creature to this Tactic has the named Creature Type, all enemy Creatures with that Creature Type during the Battle have -5 Strength.
- Outmaneuver (1): Clearly name a Tactic for the purpose of this Tactic when submitting this. If the opponent uses the named Tactic during the Battle, this Tactic has 10 Strength.
- Pack Hunting X (2): Clearly name a Creature Type for the purpose of this Tactic when submitting this. All Creatures on your side during that Battle with that Creature Type gain +3 Strength
- Proud Trumpeting (3): Double the Strength of what is in the slot listed below this Tactic, after all other bonuses and maluses.
- Combat Wizard (4): This Tactic, for the Battle, is considered to be a Creature, with Creature Type being the submitting Wizard’s name, with a Quality that is their Underling’s Quality, and +5 Strength. This Tactic can only be submitted by an eligible Player up to once per Battle.

A Wizard allied with the Northern General can use (submit for a Battle) any Tactic, regardless of Panache Requirement.

Amend:

The Triumphant’s favour increases by the mean average Strength of the other duellist’s creature slots, rounding up.

To:

The Triumphant’s favour increases by the mean average Strength for that Battle of the other duelist’s creature slots, rounding up.

Alternatives to combat.

Tying Panache to the upkeep of the underling feels bad.

The various tactics feel a little scattered.

Also, why doesn’t the southern general unlock Panache?

I wanted a way so that each player could have varying Tactics available and I preferred to use Underlings (A Wizard with Giant Underlings feels like more of an ostentatious character than one with Stealthy Underlings, for example) over another GNDT column.

Deliberate, yes. They’re supposed to be varied.

Because I want to limit the amount of Tactics players have available and having two Panache unlockers felt like too much.

First “Royal meh” of the dynasty. Feeling similarly.

Actually, I’m feeling it’s harsh to cut down what is detailed, interesting, pretty well balanced and probably took a lot of work to develop. Also it’s his first big contribution this dynasty. Change to for
