Proposal: The Fate of the Furious

Timed out and enacted, 3-0 with two unresolved DEFs. Josh

Rewrite the second paragraph of the rule Buildings to read as follows:

There are several Building Types, in four classes: Temples, Shops, Farms and Houses are all types of Infrastructure Building; Embassies are the only type of Foreign Building; Towers, Levees, Barracks and Granaries are all types of Support Building; Steles and Ziggurats are both types of Ritual Building.

Add the following to the end of the rule Buildings:

Ritual Buildings may only be built in the Palace, Agora, Gates or Docks districts.

Add the following as a new fifth step in the Declaring atomic action:

Optionally carry out the Disastermancy atomic action, if possible.

Add the following as a new rule, called Disastermancy:

Each Guardian has a Foresight score, which is publicly tracked and which defaults to zero. A Guardian’s Foresight score may not be changed except as directed by the Disastermancy action.

A Guardian may carry out the Disastermancy atomic action as part of the Declaring action. Disastermancy is an atomic action with the following steps:

* Optionally spend either 1 Livestock to build a Stele or 1 Livestock and 5 Gold to build a Ziggurat;
* Calculate their current Foresight score, which is defined as zero, plus one for each Temple they own, plus two for each Stele they own, plus five for each Zigurrat they own, plus one for each Temple, Stele or Zigurrat in a District in which they are the Baron, and set their Foresight score to that value;
* Optionally send a single Prayer to the Oracle, which is a single message that contains one theoretically possible Prophecy.

Add the following as a second step to the Auguring atomic action:

* If the Oracle has not received a Prayer since the last time an Auguring action was carried out, skip this step. Otherwise, secretly randomly roll DICE2; if the result is 2 then the Prophecy is unchanged; otherwise, secretly randomly select a Prayer they they have received since the last time an Auguring action was carried out, with the probability of each Prayer being selected being weighted by its submitter’s Foresight score, and make the current Prophecy match the contents of the selected Prayer.

You can direct typos freely, both in pending proposals and in the ruleset, so don’t worry about that

The irony of my typoing “correct” there is not lost on me

Muphry’s law. “Steele” should also be “Stele”?
