Proposal: The Everlasting Night Soon Ends

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 30 Jul 2021 11:19:51 UTC

If Richardo von Nestor voted AGAINST on this Proposal, this Proposal will have no effect instead.

Then, Enacts a new Rule, “Final Darkness”, “-“ is considered to be bullet points;

As a Atomic Action, Richardo von Nestor may End the Darkness.

For each Vampire Lord, Richardo von Nestor must perform the following on their behalf:
- Distill, ignoring Puissance cost. If at the end of the Distill Resolution such Vampire Lord may take a Distill Power Action again, considering only the Influence Cost; repeat the entirety of this bullet point.
- If such Vampire Lord have a Sepulchre, Richardo von Nestor must Free them from Unlife by Collapsing their Sepulchre.

Then, if there are more or as much FOR Votes with EVC “Day” than “Night”, Adds the following bullet point to the “Enter the Crypt” Atomic Action at the bottom of the list, “-” considered to be a bullet point;

- If the current time is 0600 1 August 2021 or later, Richardo von Nestor must End the Darkness.

Then, if there are more FOR Votes with EVC “Night” then “Day”, Adds the following bullet point to the “Enter the Crypt” Atomic Action at the bottom of the list, “-” considered to be a bullet point:

- If there are 2 or more Expeditions that happened after 0000 29 July 2021, including this one, Richardo von Nestor must End the Darkness.

Then, Adds the following bullet point to the “Enter the Crypt” Atomic Action at the bottom of the list, “-” considered to be a bullet point:

- Make a post to the blog summarising the End of Darkness action if Richardo have done the End the Darkness action. It is recommended that this include
any changes made to the gamestate of any Vampire Lords as a result of this action.

Then, Enacts a new Rule, “Dawn”:

A number of Eternity Crystals exists equal to the sum of the total amount of Blood Mana Crystals every Vampire Lord holds. Each Eternity Crystal is owned by a Vampire Lord, such that the number of Eternity Crystals each Vampire Lord holds is equal to the Blood Mana Crystal such Vampire Lord have.

If no Vampire Lord have done so and if Richardo von Nestor have Ended the Darkness, a Vampire Lord may choose a Eternity Crystal at random. Upon doing so, the owner of the chosen Eternity Crystal achieves victory.

If the Witching Hour is within 12 hours of the time of the enactment of this Proposal, extend Witching Hour by 12 hours. If Witching Hour is in the past when this Proposal is enacted, set the Witching Hour to the current time plus 12 hours.

Patched The Everlasting Night Ends, and adds choice into how much should be the remaining time.

i think the second paragraph is missing a word or two!

and maybe “must end the darkness” could be “must end the darkness as soon as he is able” to give some flexibility?

@lemon end the darkness is triggered on the completion of an Expedition, not the exact time if Day is chosen!

@lemon, also thanks for the catch. Modified.

I’m open to the general idea here, but there are a lot of extra moving parts which don’t seem immediately necessary. Why is this collapsing Sepulchres and making duplicate Crystals?

Chiiika: she/her

Collapsing Sepulchre is for flavour purposes - what Vampire Lord can survive sunlight?

Duplicate Crystals is because BMCs by itself isn’t a game entity, although it looks like one - it’s a game integer variable, much like Score, and have no ownership.

Each Vampire Lord has a number of Blood Mana Crystals, which is a publicly tracked non-negative integer defaulting to 0.

It is the exact solution you used for The First Dynasty of Mideg.

Proposal: Closing Time

Enact a new rule, “Generous Tips”:

Any Cook who was not a Cook on the 6th of May 2015 is not considered to be a Cook for the purposes of the remainder of this rule.

Each Cook has a Success score equal to twice the number of Reviewers who have praised him or her, plus the number of Awards the Cook has received.

A number of Customers exist equal to the total Success scores of every Cook. Each Customer Favours a single Cook, such that the number of Customers who Favour a particular Cook is equal to that Cook’s Success score.

If no Cook has already done so, any Cook may select a Customer at random. Upon doing so, the Cook who that Customer Favours has achieved victory.

Ah, do we all die, then? If you like, although it’s a bit of a shame to delete some of the map at a point when it makes no difference to the outcome.

And fair call on precedent, although I’d certainly frown at my own rule there and ask myself why it had the intermediate step of a Success score when it could have created the Customers directly.

against more simple solutions have been proposed and this proposal had done it’s job.

Designed to be foolproof, should’ve been two proposals.
