Proposal: The Mysterious Clock

Passes 5-2. - Jumble

Adminned at 29 Jul 2021 13:55:16 UTC

If Proposal: 3 Witch, 3 Furious was enacted, revert it.

In the rule Richardo’s Journey, change the text

Witching Hour is a publicly tracked date and time. When Richardo von Nestor or a Vampire Lord Winds the Clock, they take the current time, add 24 hours, roll a DICE24 and add the resulting number in hours, and that becomes the new Witching Hour. Whenever the Crypt Settles, Richardo von Nestor Winds the Clock. If the current time is after Witching Hour, the Organ is Playing. Otherwise the Organ is not Playing. While the Organ is Playing, no Power Actions may be performed.

to read as follows:

Witching Hour is a publicly tracked date and time. If the current time is after Witching Hour, the Organ is Playing. Otherwise the Organ is not Playing. While the Organ is Playing, no Power Actions may be performed.

When Richardo von Nestor Winds the Clock, they take the current time, add 24 hours, roll a DICE24 and add the resulting number in hours, and that becomes the new Witching Hour. Whenever the Crypt Settles, Richardo von Nestor Winds the Clock.

Whenever a Vampire Lord takes a Power Action, if the Witching Hour is less than 12 hours in the future, they must set the Witching Hour to be 12 hours from the time at which the Power Action was undertaken, unless they are the only Vampire Lord with more than 3 Puissance.

Add the following to the end of the rule Power Actions:

All Power Actions cost 1 Puissance more per two Vampire Lords (other than the Vampire Lord performing the Power Action) with 3 or fewer Puissance at the time at which the Power Action is undertaken.

 

Resetting back to a maybe slightly more stable clock mechanic, with some added costs for late movers.

I think moves within the first 24 hours shouldn’t have any cost penalty associated with them.

Of course that still creates a time crunch—you wanna take your moves towards the end so its more expensive for people to respond. so maybe just go back to the organ and deal with the slowness it brings.

Happy to see this amended further.

imperial Not perfect, and still advantageous to a coordinated cabal, but it’s at least better than the current scrambling at the random end time.
