Proposal: The End is Nigh

Times out and fails 2-2. -Bucky

Adminned at 07 Oct 2022 05:29:26 UTC

Add a new subrule to “Sieging” titled “Humanity’s Conquest”:

The humans are getting quite tired of our underground settlement; they grow restless with no monsters on the surface to satiate their need for bloodshed. Migrants in a Human King’s Levy are always considered to be participating in a Siege against monster-kind as a whole.

If the date is on or after October 8, 2022, then as a Daily Communal Action any Baron may Take Note of the Invaders by performing the following atomic action:
*Add a Migrant (human) to the Exterior of a random Keep owned by a Baron, with allegiance to a random Human King At War with that Baron, and optionally any name.
*Repeat the previous step a number of times equal to the number of full 24 hour periods that have passed since the start of October 8, 2022.

Any Baron may Intensify Sieges on behalf of a Human King so long as it would be legal for that Human King to do so (the Intensify action is carried out in the same way and under the same conditions for a Human King as it would be for a Baron, and the time a Human King last Intensified their Sieges is also publicly tracked and defaults to September 20, 0:00).

Add a new subrule to “Keeps” titled “In Ruins”:

A Baron’s Keep is considered Breached if it has no Defensive Infrastructures with greater than 0 hit points and there is at least one Migrant Hostile to that Baron in their Keep’s Exterior. Additionally, a Baron’s Keep is considered Breached if the time they last unidled is on or after October 8, 2022.

A Baron with a Breached Keep cannot take any dynastic actions not specified in this rule and cannot achieve victory by means of the rule “Influence”. A Baron with a Breached Keep can, however, Take Matters into their Own Hands as a Daily Action by removing any one Migrant in a Human King’s Levy and in the Exterior of a Keep from the game.

If one or fewer Barons have a non-Breached Keep, then the last Baron to have a non-Breached Keep has achieved victory. If multiple Barons are in a tie for this position (for example by the last two standing Keeps becoming Breached in the same Intensify action), then the victor is determined publicly randomly.

Add a new Infrastructure to the list in “Infrastructure”:
| Makeshift Wall || Wood (chopped) x 16, Iron (plate) x 2 || [Defensive] || 80 || 0
In every Baron’s Keep, add an instance of the Infrastructure Makeshift Wall to the first slot it can legally go in, if one exists.
Reduce the Iron (plate) cost of the Infrastructure Wall from 20 to 12.

In “Sieging”, replace

*Each non-Equipped Migrant that is part of their Levy and participating in a Siege reduces the Hit Points of the outermost Defensive structure of the Keep they are Besieging by 10.
*Each Equipped Migrant that is part of their Levy and participating in a Siege reduces the Hit Points of the outermost Defensive of the Keep they are Besieging structure by 20.

with

*Each non-Equipped Migrant that is part of their Levy and participating in a Siege reduces the Hit Points of the outermost Defensive Infrastructure with more than 0 hit points of the Keep they are Besieging by 10.
*Each Equipped Migrant that is part of their Levy and participating in a Siege reduces the Hit Points of the outermost Defensive Infrastructure with more than 0 hit points of the Keep they are Besieging by 20.

My take on an accelerated endgame that still uses the mechanics we have so far; the humans are out for blood now. Also fixing Sieges; as it stands now the hit points of the outermost infrastructure stay at 0 forever instead of going to the next innermost infrastructure.

I don’t mind this at all! Maybe make walls a little cheaper to go along with it though?

Done, 20 plates is way too steep of a cost to ever happen any time soon anyway.
