[OWBN-Council] [PROPOSAL][AUTO-PASS]Character Bylaw Addition and edit: Ghemalish and True Enochian
I, Matt Armitage, in my Duties as Sabbat Coordinator of One World by Night propose the following Addition to the owbn Character bylaws:
3.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.
10.m.i.12. Ghemalish - PC - PC: Coordinator Approval - NPC: Coordinator Approval - Coordinator: Sabbat
The Language of Ghemalish is taken as a slot under the Linguistics ability.
10.m.i.2. True Enochian (Vampire) - PC - PC: Coordinator Approval - NPC: Coordinator Approval - Coordinator: Sabbat
The Language of True Enohcian is taken as a slot under the Linguistics ability.
Reasoning: This language is presented in the V20 book The Black Hand: Guide to the Tal’Mahe’Ra. It is the rare and unique language of the Tal’Mahe’Ra and should not be possessed by anyone else; according to the book. Additionally this language is supposed to be even rarer then True Enochian itself. Thus I am adding for it to be Coordinator approval and no legacy to confirm characters who are allowed to have it are the ones according to the canon that should.
Additionally, we feel both the languages of Ghemalish and True Enochian should not be separate abilities. Rather they should fall under the Linguistics ability rules. This would eliminate the need of True Enochian to be a 1-5 ability on its own, it would be our recommendation that STs refund XP in this case.
