Proposal: Sunk Profits, Take 2

Timed out 3 votes to 2. Enacted by Kevan.

To the final paragraph of “Armour Value and Damage”, add:-

When a Vessel Sinks, all Captains (except for those who share a Side with the controller of the Sinking Vessel) who control a Vessel which created a Shot in the same square as the Sunk Vessel during the processing of most recent Watch gain 10 Treasure.

Add a new rule, “Treasure Victory”:-

The first Captain to have more than 50 Treasure (while also having more Treasure than every other Captain) achieves victory.

Kevin did all the work writing this, but I support it enough to get it rolling again. Let’s win this game!

against Not quite sure if this is a good interface with Treasure, and this seems to end up with an infinite-draw issue near the end. Port claiming might be a good positive feedback loop.

What do you mean by infinite draw?

Sorry, I meant long draw. Basically “oh, TyGuy6’s at 41 treasure, I’ll just run and try to think of something.” This also interfaces weird with idle players from other sides (free treasure).
