Changed: 1c1
To "stribble" is to knock over a token stack in a disorganised manner. While the chances are that tokens will drop closer to the demolished stack rather than further away, there is a sufficient random element to this that any of them could end up anywhere - on any station on the board, off it, or even in other players' inventories.

The random nature of this effect, and the high cost in LV of attempting it, means that it is seldom played except as a "last-resort" manoeuvre. Consequently, just as with the equally random fFrobisher fFlourish, it is often unsuccessful when it is performed, although can be spectacular when it actually works.
