Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision
Opened: 25-Nov-2020 12:00AM EST
Closing: 02-Dec-2020 12:00AM EST


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.

 

I, Lauren Russ, as Tremere Coordinator, propose the following bylaw changes/additions.

 

This can be shared with players.

 

Additions and Changes are in red. The current bylaws as written are in black.

 

Reasoning: These are the updates that Team Tremere and our fellow Coordinators felt appropriate going forward with Gargoyle genre. These changes reflect the passing of the recent plot prop, and will be included in the Gargoyle Packet. Some of the modifications to the bylaws regarding Visceratika and Flight powers specifically is to put the power into PC hands rather than NPCs when negotiating for custom content or combination disciplines. It is my belief that PCs should be those other PCs should go to when attempting to attain Gargoyle specific custom combinations utilizing Flight/Visceratika.

 

The rest of the additions/changes are to better reflect genre going forward, and ensure we have covered all of our bases.

 

No Legacy

 

Reason for no legacy: These bylaws reflect the changes apparent in the up and coming Gargoyle packet.  This is to ensure that powers/sheets are balanced when it comes to some of the dark ages materials or materials from V20. Many of the things included were already pretty well regulated, and we will likely re-approve most who had these powers (within reason of course).
