comment In Diplomacy, is it good strategy to have a primary alliance with a country on the opposite of the board?
"England and Turkey... This type of alliance seems unlikely to develop 'naturally' in the real world, since they're nowhere near each other." You may find this interesting: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimean_War

comment How can I reduce the planar die “whiff factor” with house rules?
+1 because this is a reasonable attempt to squish rolls down to a simpler decision.

+1 because this addresses the frustration/aimlessness of whiffing forever.

This is a good start, but can you describe this as a simple rule rather than a mathematical relationship to use to build rules?

@Rainbolt Simplified the requirements. You can interpret this list as priority-ordered. Go forth and hack!

@Rainbolt Consider that if the goals weren't at least a little bit in conflict, the solution would be trivial. I imagine quite a few good solutions can come from deep analysis of why a Planechase game bogs down in fruitless rolling.

@murgatroid99 Minor consequences for rolling the die so it's not a do-nothing action, or figure out a way to condense "do nothing" rolls into a shorter procedure, or replace some of the randomness with a cost. That sort of thing.

@murgatroid99 Right now you roll nothing and it just cascades. Roll nothing. Spend mana. Roll nothing. Spend more mana. Roll nothing. This is a crappy cycle.
