Proposal: That Coffin Sound

Self-killed. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 11 Jun 2021 18:54:52 UTC

Add a subrule to “The Crypt of Dracula” called “Sepulchres”:-

If a room is named “X’s Sepulchre”, where X is the name of a Vampire Lord, then it is that Lord’s Sepulchre. If a Lord’s Sepulchre does not contain a Feature that includes the word “Consecrates”, and/or there is not an orthogonally-connected path of Explored rooms from room E4 to the Sepulchre, then any Vampire Lord may collapse that Sepulchre, making it Unexplored.

Whenever Richardo von Nestor Consecrates a Sepulchre, its Lord loses 1 Puissance.

Add a Feature to the list in “Features”:-

Richardo von Nestor Consecrates this room. (+1)

In “Vampire Lords”, after “Each Vampire Lord has a Puissance, which is a publicly tracked non-negative integer that defaults to 10.”, add:-

If a Vampire Lord’s Puissance would go above 10 (or 15 if that Lord has a Sepulchre) then it instead becomes that value.

I like Josh’s “individual coffin room as an expensive insurance policy” idea. Setting up a Sepulchre gives you a higher Puissance cap, but is bad news if Richardo finds it.

Maybe instead of “is not orthogonally adjacent to another explored room” go with something like “there is not a path from the entrance to the Sepulchre”? That would stop multiple vampires from putting their Sepulchre’s next to each other.

Good call. “The Entrance” is looking a little shaky right now, as I think has been pointed out (is it the Entrance or the Crypt Entrance?), so I’ll call it E4.

In this version of the rule you can construct a Sepulchre for someone else right next to the entrance to attack their resource pool.  against

I’m not entirely opposed to the idea of attacking someones resources but my opinion is that this rule doesn’t accomplish the desired effect.

against I strongly agree with putting us on the map. I don’t like this implementation, though.

In particular, I think the correct consequence for Richardo reaching a Sepulchre is to immediately collapse it.

against Good point from Phil. Self-killing this.
