Proposal: The Feather of Truth

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

After the first paragraph of “Endgames”, add:-

A Villager’s Micromori value is equal to their number of Memento Mori multiplied by 100, minus 10 for each Disease they have, minus 5 for each Symptom they are exhibiting, plus 1 for each Remedy they were carrying at the start of the most recent Doctor’s Rounds.

In “Endgames”, after “the number of all memento mori is disclosed and the villager with the most memento mori has achieved victory” (if that text is there), add:-

the Villager with the highest Micromori value is Remembered. (Any ties for this are broken randomly.)

Then replace “the Villager with the most Memento Mori is Remembered. (Any ties for this are broken according to fewest Symptoms.) ” with:-

the Villager with the highest Micromori value is Remembered. (Any ties for this are broken randomly.)

Giving both Memento Mori endgames a tiebreaker, and making it more granular than “fewest Symptoms”.

*cough* Morally, I’m opposed to calling this Micromori instead of Centimori but for

against Is the 100 getting the subtractions or the total? It can seriously play into people’s perception of how much they’re “winning” by to make proper decisions because its ambiguous and the calculations will be different. The “Any ties for this are broken randomly.” wording is also hazardous as I can poke my belly in a random way from now on but that doesn’t mean that I’ll necessarily poke it ever, as the wording is ambiguous as to how the randomness is applied.

Clarifying the first point:

Micromori = Memento Mori x 100 - 10*Diseases -5*Sympthoms +1*Remedies


Micromori = Memento Mori x (100 - 10*Diseases -5*Sympthoms +1*Remedies)

Which one is it? We can’t know. It’s ambiguous.

The comma after 100 makes it look to me like unambiguously the first one.

against Self-kill, looks like I almost snuck “the Villager with the highest Micromori value is Remembered” into the ruleset as a sentence by itself, by accident.

Ah, not quite, I missed the full stop in the quoted text. But even so: I said “after” instead of “replace”.
