Proposal: Tempo

Timed out and enacted, 5-1. Josh

Adminned at 15 Dec 2020 13:13:40 UTC

Add a new rule to the ruleset, called Tempo:

Whenever a Bogey is Eliminated, Poindexter may create a new DEVA.

Once every 7 days, Poindexter may create a new DEVA. As a weekly action, Poindexter may reduce the number in the previous sentence by one.

I would strongly prefer that attempting to eliminate DEVAs actually reduce the number of DEVAs.

From the current 1? There isn’t much eliminating left in the dynasty, then

hmm…

“Whenever a Bogey is Eliminated, if there are no other Bogeys, Poindexter may create a new DEVA”?

So there’s only ever exactly one?

Just seems a bit dull if I’m honest. If that’s what you want them fair enough, to me it seems more interesting if there’s an array of targets.

I do accept that this proposal sets out a growth formula though, probably worth making sure there’s a ratchet down to do with the ratchet up.

What happens when the number hits 0?

I was thinking both
“Whenever a Bogey is Eliminated, if there are no other Bogeys, Poindexter may create a new DEVA” and
“Once every 7 days, Poindexter may create a new DEVA. As a weekly action, Poindexter may reduce the number in the previous sentence by one.”

Yep, that works for me.

@coderblaze Great point - it’s ambiguously a gamestate tracked variable so it can’t go below zero but at zero I can create infinite DEVAs, which is probably bad for you

How about nix the timing requirement of “Whenever a Bogey is Eliminated” and go with:

“If all individual DEVAs have been Eliminated, Poindexter may create a new DEVA.”

CoV for and will propose an amendment later.
