Proposal

-------------

 

Pursuant to Coordinator Bylaw 3.C.iii, as the Demon Coordinator, I, David Niemitz, in my duties as said Coordinator, hereby propose the following Bylaw changes, in conjunction with the vote to replace the current OWBN Fallen Packet (2017) with Laws of the Abyss, by James Freeman-Hargis.

 

Demon: The Fallen is a core genre of the World of Darkness, and I see no need for them to be notified (PC or NPC), any more than vampires or werewolves are.

 

This proposal carries the potential to autopass.

Rationale

----

 

There are several things being changed here.  The first is to deregulate PC and NPC Fallen, which are currently Notify.  We now have two active Fallen genre games that I am aware of, and a third just getting started.  It’s not practical for those games to be notifying every new PC, and it’s not in line with how the other core genres in OWBN are handled.  I’ve spoken to some of the Staff members of those games, and under some previous Coordinators this requirement wasn’t even being enforced.  

 

Secondly, it was suggested that with the new Core book being propped, the Glass Ceiling rules for Demon: The Fallen be re-examined simultaneously, and so I have done so.

 

Finally, the rule that any PC who changed creature type to a Fallen became an NPC technically prevented Fallen genre STs from running the scene where a new Fallen PC comes into existence - the equivalent of a First Change, Chrysalis, Embrace, Second Breath, etc.  I have adjusted the wording so that normal humans may become Fallen PCs, allowing Fallen genre STs the ability to run preludes for new PCs and be in compliance with the bylaws.

Partial.  Allowed for PCs who had previously earned Overlord Rank.  Disallowed for the Glass Ceiling on Abilities, Faith and Willpower, and for the higher ranks.
