Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision
Opened: 12-Dec-2023 12:00AM EST
Closing: 13-Dec-2023 12:00AM EST


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. PROPOSAL I, Stacey Diaz, hereby propose this, the OWBN Setite Genre Packet, to replace the previous OWBN Setite Genre Packet. From the baseline of this packet, games will be free to design whatever house rules they like to suit the tastes of their region, just as they would modify Laws of the Night, or any other core rules set. This revised packet allows everyone to have common ground from which to modify. Also a bylaw revision to reflect terms in new packets.

Bylaw Revision: Change Apostate in terms of Setite Genre to Convert.

Changes from the 2019 Genre Packet: We have updated the Temple Add-On mechanics with a creation system and a few more mechanics. We garnered permission from the Nosferatu Coordinator to use the Warrens System as inspiration. We have added new non-leadership roles within the Citizen Caste, as not everyone wants to be a Priest or Warrior as it doesn't call to them OOCLY. We have added requirements and benefits for most of the roles within the Caste system. Making the different positions and roles more viable for play and things to strive for. We also have detailed 9 and a half pages of Lore between clan/faction/bloodline as they all share the same parent clan, at different levels you learn about various cults and bloodlines and actual history of the clan. We have also fleshed out Akhu Lore and roughly what each level does. Additionally we re-added Backgrounds, Merits, and Combo's to the packets and made suggested mechanics.
We also are changing the term Apostate to Convert. 

Rationale: So, when we updated to the 2019 packet, we had taken out a lot of the mechanics as we wanted the packet to be a quick grab guide basically. However, we realize that not everyone has access to all the various books to be able to go through and look for mechanics and other things. So, we have re-added some of the things that were part of previous genre packets so that ST's and players can see most of the stuff related to mechanics and the like all in one place. The reasoning behind the Bylaw Revision is because we are updating terms in the new packet and want the bylaws to reflect the changes.
