Proposal Type: Genre Packet

Pursuant to bylaw C. iii. Genre Coordinators must pass before Council any plot, R&U bylaw revision, R&U named characters, Coordinator-NPC Character Resurrections, territory requests, in character enforced policy, or in character binding edict they wish to use which they can reasonably expect to affect multiple chronicles and these proposals need not be seconded, but go immediately into discussion.


Therefore, in accordance with these duties,  I, Jessica Staley-Carroll as Toreador Coordinator, do so propose the following.


The current French Toreador Packet , circa 2011, will no longer be BINDING and removed as a genre packet resource. 


The French packet can be found at http://www.owbn.net/system/files/packet-files-private/Toreador_French_Packet.pdf





1) The French genre packet, last updated in 2011, is out of date and inconsistent with current OWbN plot and territory control.  This inconsistency hinders attempts to create story-driven plot and NPCs that are meaningful to current PCs and Storytellers.


2) The French packet contains unnecessary information as it is an English language document meant to encourage roleplay with French and/or French speaking  OWbN chronicles.  Currently, there are no OWbN chronicles in France.


3) Information regarding French Toreador genre will be included in the future updated binding Toreador genre packet.




  1.  Will this affect player character and storyteller relationships with current NPC French mentors, sires, grandsires, clan leaders, etc?


No.  These changes will not remove or change any player character backgrounds, merits, NPC mentors, etc.  Those relationships are not dictated by the Toreador French genre packet.


  1. Does this signal a dramatic or extreme change to the way the Toreador genre will be run in regards to France?


No.  Although there may be some minor organizational changes to NPCs in order to allow more Interaction with possible NPC mentors, allies and/or foils, the Toreador French genre will remain Intact.
