[Proposal] [Amendment 1] [Bylaws] [AutoPass] Defining Sects of Assamite Factions
THIS PROPOSAL HAS THE POTENTIAL TO AUTO-PASS
This proposal is made in accordance with the Coordinator Bylaws, section 3.C. (Subsections ii. and iii.):
3. Coordinator Duties
C. Genre Coordinators
iii. Genre Coordinators must pass before Council any plot, enforced policy, R&U named characters, or 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.
1. If no opposition is voiced during the week of discussion, the proposal is considered passed and enforceable. Once passed these are considered binding to all chronicles and a chronicles refusal to adhere is grounds for OWBN disciplinary measures. Opposition must be in regards to the content of the proposal and must give those reasons why the objection is voiced. This is to allow Coordinator's the opportunity to respond and/or make changes/remove the proposal and its contents.
I, Chase Jelliffe, as Assamite Coordinator, hereby propose the following changes to bylaw 10.m.iii.2
Assamite converting from one Assamite Faction to another - PC: Coordinator Approval - NPC: Coordinator Approval - Coordinator: Assamite
Assamite Factions are defined as Schismatic, Loyalist, Unconquered/Angels of Caine, or Dispossessed
The Assamite Factions are defined as Schism/Schismatic, Loyalist, Unconquered/Angels of Caine, or Dispossessed. All Assamite characters belong to one Assamite Faction, which by default is the sect listed below.
Unconquered/Angels of Caine: Sabbat
Dispossessed: Anarch, Ashirra, Inconnu, Independent, or Jati
An Assamite Character belonging to an Assamite Faction outside their listed Sect - PC: Coordinator Approval - NPC: Coordinator Approval - Coordinator: Assamite
If an Assamite Character sect defects, they also switch Assamite Factions.
Assamite Loyalist Faction characters switching to Dispossessed - PC: Coordinator Approval - NPC: Coordinator Approval - Coordinator: Assamite
Renumber the current “b” through “e” as “e” through “h”
Reasoning: Even though the source material and packet are clear, the Bylaws haven’t defined what sect each of the Assamite Factions can be in. These loopholes have caused numerous issues and genre misunderstandings over the years. Some of these issues include Anarch Schismatics enjoying Schism benefits without the in-character responsibilities and Camarilla Assamites believing they can “go Dispossessed” while remaining in the Camarilla to escape character consequences. Removing these loopholes will put the Assamite genre in a better place as it evolves from the current Assamite National Plot.
Legacy Exemption: Loyalist PC’s that previously have had approval to switch to Dispossessed have Legacy. Otherwise none. Characters belonging to Assamite Factions outside their listed sect must seek approval from the Assamite Office.
Amendment 1: Changed from disallowed to Coordinator Approval to be in a faction outside your sect. Removed Legacy other than for Loyalists previously approved to go Dispossessed.
