[OWBN-Council] [PROPOSAL] Addition to Character bylaws, 10 point Morality Scale
I, Adam Sartori, as CM and HST of Kings of New York propose the following change to the character regulation bylaws:
2.g. Vampire Morality
i. All Vampire/Ghoul/Revenant characters shall use the ten point Morality Scale for their Humanity and Paths of Enlightenment as presented in the Table Top Books.
1. A characters starting morality level is equal to their combined Conscience/Conviction and Self-Control/Instinct rating.
2. At character creation the character may lose one level of their morality to gain 2 freebie points to spend.
3. The difficulty for all Conscience/Conviction Challenges when a character violates a path sin is equal to half the path sin level rounded up.
ii. Any Discipline, Combination Discipline or Power that grants bonus traits equal to their character’s Morality is instead equal to half their current morality rating rounded up.
iii. All Vampire/Ghoul/Revenant Characters with True Faith must maintain a morality rating of 9 or above to keep their True Faith.
Exception: Once this passes as a vote, all existing characters are allowed to adjust their morality to this new scale. They will double their current morality rating at no additional XP cost to them. This will be their new morality rating. After this, all new vampire characters to OWBN will follow this system. This takes effect the date of when and if this proposal passes.
Reasoning: By the most recent printing, Chaining the Beast is also a MET book. This would have changed the scale to 10 trait morality scale if we were using the most recent printing of a book for vampire. Furthermore; a 10 trait morality scale places it in line with the other game lines of the world of darkness and allows for greater role-play and diversity compared to a 5 point scale. Lastly, while a game can just make this a house rule, it is unfair to those players to suffer an XP penalty compared to games that don’t use this scale. I believe this change will be better for the vampire characters of OWBN.
This proposal requires a second.
