A lot of typing for not a lot of change!! I, Will Lee, proposed the following changes to the bylaws, and the 2017 Ravnos packet (currently v3). This prop has the potential to auto pass.
 
Reasoning for below; 
The merit gets expensive, and it punishes newer players. 
I changed blood or willpower to (genre appropriate) or willpower, to include other genres besides vampire.
Removed the word Gypsy from the bylaw/power
Deregulated 1-3 so more can be obtainable for PCs on the same level as other easily obtainable magic items
Kept 4-5 at coord approval to keep the stronger ones overseen
Lowered the challenge to activate to something more reasonable
This is also a step to me making the Draba creation power itself usable, and not make every item made approval

Charmed Samadji (1 - 6 point Merit or Flaw) 

Coordinator Approval. Clanbook: Ravnos (1st Edition) 

Your family or sire has gifted you with a item of power. You are expected to carry this powerful draba until you sire your own progeny, then pass the gift on to her. Power levels of samadji vary greatly ; a item may give bonus traits on certain actions, or provide the user the benefit of some basic or intermediate power’s. A samadji is activated by spending a Blood Trait or a Willpower trait with a static Willpower test vs. 7 traits, the effect’s last for an hour or a scene, whichever comes first. You should work with a Storyteller to determine the power and the final value of the object, after gaining Coord approval. 

Note: Only Ravnos may activate this item, as it is attuned to the blood. The flaw version of this, if taken, is a cursed item that is extremely hard to get rid of and is considered to always be active. It may subtract traits or retests on certain actions, or hinder the user’s powers they already possess, at storyteller discretion. 

TO (Under New Background)

Draba 1-5 point background 

Your family or sire has gifted you with an item of power. You are expected to carry this powerful Draba until you sire your own progeny, then pass the gift on to her. Power levels of Draba vary greatly; an item may give bonus traits on certain actions, or provide the user the benefit of some basic or intermediate power’s. A Draba is activated by spending a genre appropriate trait, or a Willpower trait, with a static Willpower test vs. (level of the background) traits, the effect’s last for a scene or hour, whichever comes first. You should work with a Storyteller to determine the power and the final value of the object.

Note: Only Ravnos/Blooded Rom/Phralmulo may activate this item, as it is attuned to the blood. 

System: Multiple versions of this background can be taken to represent multiple items. Levels 1-3 of this background (per item) is simply ST approval, but 4-5 require Coordinator Approval. Draba do not stack, but multiple may be active. (Example: Rob the Ravnos has a Draba that grants him one trait on social challenges, and a separate one that gives two traits on leadership challenges. He will only be able to benefit from one, or the other)

Each level invested provides one of the following;

1 level of the background

+1 trait on a certain type of challenge, or attribute category (Max 3)

2 levels of the background

+1 Health level of armor, or +1 level of damage to a weapon (may not exceed +1)

3 levels of the background

A luck based retest/ability based retest

4 levels of the background (Coordinator Approval)

Unique effect, or basic power

5 levels of the background (Coordinator Approval)

Unique effect, intermediate power, cannon Draba (from printed references such as WoD: Gypsies)
