Proposal: Tinkering

Self-killed. Josh

In the rule The Crypt of Dracula, after the sentence “and any number of Features as its Effect (or “none” if it has no Features), in an order of the Vampire Lord’s choosing”, add “but with no more than one Feature from the Opportunities list”.

Set the cost of Richardo Finds an Ingress to +1.

Move “If Richardo is not Enriched, he gains 1 Energy for each Active Sigil engraved here and becomes Enriched (+1)” from the Glyphs and Sigils list to the Opportunities list.

Add the following to the Opportunities list:

Richardo finds a Statue to the Goddess (+1)

Add a new rule called Gifts of the Goddess:

Richardo’s Whip and Shield are gifts from the Goddess, and can be empowered at Statues to the Goddess.

When a room is Pacified, if it contained the ‘Richardo finds a Statue to the Goddess’ effect, Richardo secretly randomly selects whether to pray for Power or Alacrity (if he already has prayed for one of these in this Enter the Crypt action, he automatically selects the other; if he has already prayed for both then this rule has no further effect during this Enter the Crypt action”. If he prayed for Power then his Whip is blessed and he becomes Powerful; if he prayed for Alacrity then his Shield is empowered and be becomes Quick.

Whenever Richardo Encounters a Denizen, if he is Powerful, then he disregards the Denizen’s Brutality when comparing his dice results to the Denizen’s statistics. Whenever Richardo Encounters a Denizen, if he is Quick, then he disregards the Denizen’s Cunning when comparing his dice results to the Denizen’s statistics.

Seems maybe a bit too strong? The same room can be Pacified more than once if you can get Richardo to go back to it. So in theory you need just one room down a hallway for Richardo to simply be able to kill any Denizen he encounters.

It looks like the Goddess Statue disproportionately hurts players whose Denizens are far from the entrance – Richardo will be on the way out already when encountering a Goddess Statue, so will be more likely to encounter distant than nearby Denizens. I guess that might be intentional to encourage players to use Ingresses, though.

By the way, it’s possible at the moment to get Richardo to kill everything, by using a derandomized chest. But that’s more expensive, luck-base, and temporary. This would be a big step up in terms of Denizen-killing.
