Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision
Opened: 13-Dec-2019 12:00AM EST
Closing: 20-Dec-2019 12:00AM EST


I, Zac Race, acting as the Council Member for Pander's Playground, propose the following at the request of my staff:
 
Change to Character Bylaw 7.c.
 
From:
  1. Learning Custom Content
    1. PCs learning any Custom Content previously created by another Character needs to Notify the appropriate Coordinator as per the above guidelines and must also have learned the custom content from the character that created it or another character who can accurately trace the instruction to the original creator. This is to exclude any power or mechanic that is contained within a packet. Coordinators may, at their discretion, also exclude a power from this clause if they have sufficient need to do so and a recent packet that would cover the power or mechanic has not been updated within ONE calendar year.
      1. Non-Malkavian PCs learning any Custom Content using Dementation previously created by another Character requires Malkavian Coordinator Approval.
      2. Non-Gargoyle PCs and NPCs learning any Custom Content using Flight or Visceratika previously created requires Tremere Coordinator Approval
      3. Dur-An-Ki practitioner PCs learning Custom Content paths of Dur-An-Ki previously created require Assamite Coordinator approval, but do not require a PC "teacher" because Dur-An-Ki is learned via ascending the ladder of heaven, and is not "taught" by a PC.
To:
  1. Learning Custom Content
    1. PCs learning any Custom Content previously created by another Character needs to Notify the appropriate Coordinator as per the above guidelines and must also have learned the custom content from the character that created it or another character who can accurately trace the instruction to the original creator. This is to exclude any power or mechanic that is contained within a packet or had been in a packet (requiring that Coordinator's Approval). Coordinators may, at their discretion, also exclude a power from this clause if they have sufficient need to do so and a recent packet that would cover the power or mechanic has not been updated within ONE calendar year.
      1. Non-Malkavian PCs learning any Custom Content using Dementation previously created by another Character requires Malkavian Coordinator Approval.
      2. Non-Gargoyle PCs and NPCs learning any Custom Content using Flight or Visceratika previously created requires Tremere Coordinator Approval
      3. Dur-An-Ki practitioner PCs learning Custom Content paths of Dur-An-Ki previously created require Assamite Coordinator approval, but do not require a PC "teacher" because Dur-An-Ki is learned via ascending the ladder of heaven, and is not "taught" by a PC.
Rationale: If a packet is updated, but forgoes carrying over custom content from the previous packet, it falls into this bylaw and PCs cannot learn it unless there is a record of the original creator. For many things, no such records exist.  This change makes it so that PCs/NPCs who were grandfathered to have that content can still teach it with Coordinator oversight.
