Proposal: Thirty pieces of silver

Reached quorum 5 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Add a new rule called “Judas”:

An Adventurer can Point Their Finger at an Adventurer other than themselves by paying 50 Merit and making a blog post that has “Pointing to X” as the title, with X being the name of an Adventurer. If X is the name of the Traitor, then they have Pointed Their Finger Correctly (and this is privately tracked by the Priest). This X cannot be edited once posted. An Adventurer can only Point Their Finger once. Only Quorum Adventurers can Point Their Finger.

Amend the first sentence of the last paragraph of Cathedral to:

When the Cathedral is destroyed, the Priest shall Pass Judgement (in a timely fashion) and grant 100 Merit to non-Traitor Adventurers who Pointed Their Finger Correctly, and 50*Quorum Merit to the Traitor if none Pointed Their Finger Correctly. After Passing Judgement, victory shall belong to the Adventurer who has the greatest amount of Merit and is not otherwise barred from achieving victory.

Nice idea, but it shouldn’t allow players to prove that they aren’t the Traitor while the dynasty is still playing out: either by pointing to themselves, or inviting the player they’re trying to convince to do so.

It either needs a Merit penalty for being wrong, or (since that penalty will likely be outweighed by whatever collaboration is being discussed) should only be applied at the very end of the game, when the Cathedral falls.

I was actually surprised not to see such a penalty, though I can’t say I know what it ought to be.

OK, fixed
