Proposal: The Gods Do Not Play Dice

In the rule “Prophecy”, replace “which describes a District and a Fate” with “which describes a District, a Fate and a Focus number”.

In that rule, replace “a random Building in that District (if any are there)” with “the Focused Building in that District (if there are any Buildings there)”.

To that rule, add:-

The Focused Building of a District, for a given Prophecy, is found by counting left to right through the list of Buildings in that District, starting from the leftmost Building and looping back to it when counting on from the rightmost building, until the number counted equals the Prophecy’s Focus number.

In “The Queue”, replace “Selecting a secretly random District and secretly random Fate to become the new Prophecy” with:-

Selecting a secretly random District and a secretly random Fate to become the new Prophecy, having a Focus of a secretly random number from 1 to 20

Add a bullet point after “Selecting an Audient and privately informing them of the Prophecy’s Fate” in that rule, reading:-

Selecting an Audient and privately informing them of the Prophecy’s Focus number, in a message of the format “I see X birds in flight”, where X is the Focus number

To “Buildings”, add:-

The order of Buildings in a District is a publicly tracked list. When a new Building is added to a District, whoever adds it may place it anywhere within the list of that District’s Buildings.

The orders of the Buildings within Districts become whatever they are in the wiki page at the time of enactment.

Add a new dynastic rule, “Late Result”:-

At any time, the Oracle may set the Focus number of the current Prophecy to a random number from 1 to 20, then select an Audient and privately inform them of this number, in a message of the format “I see X birds in flight”, where X is the number, then repeal this rule.

Giving Prophecies predictable (and manipulable) pinpoint accuracy, rather than a purely random target.
