Hi all, I just have a idea for GK to weaken his ability to guard confirmed BD players and confirm himself (seeing as EK shouldn’t in theory guard BD.
This is not all necessary with improved safeguards but it is a nice idea imo that hinders “play around this confirmed BD” meta strategies.
Restless Relations(Passive) - Your relations have grown weary of having guards escort them around the castle and in these troubling times are also concerned about whether you are putting the citizens of Adiart before yourself. Your improved safeguards ability will fail if used on someone with Royal Blood, you will not be notified of it fails because of this.
The aim of this passive is to lessen the meta of “King guard prince tonight or you’re EK” meta and also weaken GK. The focus of the court concerning the king is reading whether he is scum or not and is supposed to be mechanically identical. The post-patch 2.3 EK can function like this using his improved safeguards but at a direct cost to his win condition (one less guard on himself/his faction)
I stress again this passive isn’t needed, but it weakens the “Guard X important role” meta strategies that have seen some popularity in previous patches with a safeguard GK.
