--------------------------
Detailed Reasoning
--------------------------
Bringers of the Light are, by book, a secret camp of Shadow Lords that have a bunch of skills in their toolset to allow them to infiltrate without completely screwing themselves over in the process.
 
In OWBN, the camp is more well known than it should be, but the ship has long since sailed to make it truly secret again. 
 
There have been several instances over the past 5 years where BotL pcs have gone out into Vampire games masquerading as Vampires (something their gift kit absolutely allows them to do) in a nonstandard way that is very frustrating for both Vampire and Garou STs to deal with, especially in regards to event games. It is not that there is an uprising and hatred for these pcs; it is that there is no clear standard they can look to to say 'this is what is allowed / disallowed' for this type of PC. 
 
I am by no means looking to stop BotL being a thing in play but given the proliferation of BotL PCs and the nature of those PCs to seek out almost exclusively cross genre play in the org, I feel a standard should be set so that STs of OWBN know what to expect from these PCs and can make a more informed decision as to whether or not they will allow that in their games. 
 
--------------------------
Grandfathering
--------------------------
Previous membership in the Camp (but not current membership in the camp): 
Allowed
for Shadow Lord PCs and NPCs
 
Previous membership in the camp for non Shadow Lord PCs/NPCs (with the exception of those who have renounced)
Disallowed
Only Shadow Lords can be BotL. This is not a camp that is open to outsiders. 
 
Current Membership in the Camp
Disallowed
We need to set a standard. 
All current members will need to reapply to ensure the standard is the same across the board for every BotL PC and NPC
 
To explain this, before someone gets mad at me for Partial Grandfathering again, I am documenting visibly on council that I will be grandfathering specific aspects of this as seen above. You will still need to do the paperwork, but if you find I have not done the thing as seen above, you will be able to call me out on council over it.
