Proposal: The Truth

Timed out and enacted, 3-1. Josh

Adminned at 30 Dec 2023 16:25:34 UTC

Add a new dynastic rule titled “Knowledge”, with the following content:

Each Necromancer has Knowledge, which is a publicly tracked number defaulting to zero.

There are some Ultimate Truths, described in the table below, each of which has a name, a nonnegative integer cost and an effect.

{| class="wikitable"
|+ Ultimate Truths
! Name !! Cost !! Effect
| The Colour of Magic || 1 || Whenever you gain mana, you gain one additional mana (this does not count as a separate mana gain)

Each Necromancer has a publicly tracked list of Discovered Truths. At any time, a Necromancer may Discover an Ultimate Truth that is not already in their Discovered Truths by spending an amount of Knowledge equal to the cost of that Ultimate Truth, and add it to their Discovered Truths. The effects of a Ultimate Truth apply to the Necromancers who have it in their Discovered Truths and to them only.

If the proposal “Location, Location, Location” enacted, add the following new location:

| Library | At any time, you may spend 15 mana to gain 1 Knowledge ||

You never explicitly state that Necromancers have publicly tracked Discovered Truths, only that they can add to it. It would be helpful to state it, and also state what the default value is, which I imagine is likely empty.

Edited and added explicit declaration for Discovered Truths (appendix already fixes the default value issue)

against I predict that this is going to be a rich-get-richer mechanism.
