Proposal: Yoink!

Reached quorum 7 votes to 2 with 1 unresolved DEF. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 03 Jun 2020 10:13:16 UTC

Add a new dynastic rule called “Power” and give it the following text

Each Amnesiac has a non-negative integer amount of Power, tracked in a column called “Power” on “The Wheel” wiki page. Power defaults to 2.

Each Amnesiac has a positive integer amount of Defenses, tracked in a column called “Defenses” on “The Wheel” wiki page. Defenses defaults to 1.

An Amnesiac may spend 1 or more power to attempt a Raid. To do so, they (the Raider) select another Amnesiac who has at least three points (the Raidee) and roll a DICE(P+D) where P is the amount of power the Raider spent and D is the defenses of the Raidee. If the result of the die roll is less than or equal to P, the raid succeeds and three points are transferred from the Raidee to the Raider.

If an Amnesiac’s Defenses are D, they may spend 2*D power to increase their Defenses by 1.

Add a segment to the Wheel called “Power” with Payout “Gain 2 Power”

We need more than just points. This also helps with some catchup mechanics.

This seems like a fun method, but I think it will significantly increase tracking.

tracking what exactly? its easy to track extra columns in the wiki…

I just think we shouldn’t let the wikipage get too crowded.

It can be one column: P/D ^^

That seems inelegant; on the whole, I think I will vote for this, but I think we should just be careful. for

Why inelegant? A lot of card games has Power/Defence.
Anyway, a vote was cast, so…

I was referring to the single column method as inelegant.


02-06-2020 01:15:37 UTC

for I’d be in favor of a single column record

against This is likely to be a short dynasty; pulling the leader down is a mechanic that I think we should be adding lightly. I like the execution and think that it’s elegant, but I think in this dynasty it’s not quite a good fit.

against Why are surrealist gamblers building “defences” and going on “raids” around the roulette table?
