I hereby propose the following proposal to add a condition to Administrative Bylaw, Section 1, as it applies to the Withdrawal of Chronicles.

Existing Bylaw:

A. Withdrawal

i. A full-member chronicle may always voluntarily withdraw from OWBN.

1. If it is the will of a substantial group of players to continue to play in our Organization, a new Storytelling crew may continue and the chronicle will remain in the Organization with its current membership status.

a. In order to be eligible to retain their current chronicle membership status in the Organization, they will need to submit a full chronicle report as per Administrative Bylaw 8.D to the Archivist and the Executive Team within one month of the withdrawal under 1.H.i.

b. If a chronicle is under investigation by the Executive Team for expulsion or other disciplinary measures against the chronicle, or if Council is conducting a formal vote which would affect the status of the chronicle's membership, Bylaw 1.H.i.1 does not apply.

ii. When a chronicles is expelled or withdraws from OWBN, players from that chronicle may transfer their characters to other active chronicles, if their transfer is accepted by another active chronicle.

Proposed Bylaw:

A. Withdrawal & Expulsion

iii. A full-member chronicle may always voluntarily withdraw from OWBN.

1. If it is the will of a substantial group of players to continue to play in our Organization, a new Storytelling crew may continue and the chronicle will remain in the Organization with its current membership status.

a. In order to be eligible to retain their current chronicle membership status in the Organization, they will need to submit a full chronicle report as per Administrative Bylaw 8.D to the Archivist and the Executive Team within one month of the withdrawal under 1.H.i.

b. If a chronicle is under investigation by the Executive Team for expulsion or other disciplinary measures against the chronicle, or if Council is conducting a formal vote which would affect the status of the chronicle's membership, Bylaw 1.H.i.1 does not apply.

iv. When a chronicles is expelled or withdraws from OWBN, players from that chronicle may transfer their characters to other active chronicles, if their transfer is accepted by another active chronicle.

1. If the chronicle was expelled, any transfers of characters will need to involve the Executive Team as oversight to ensure that the characters being transferred are not party to the reasons for the chronicle’s expulsion.

I feel that oversight should be added to this Bylaw in so much as if a chronicle was enough of a problem child to be expelled then we should not continue to support or reward those that were a part of such a significant problem.

Playing in this private hobby gaming club is a privilege and not a right, and I loathe cheaters that cheapen this experience at the expense of everyone else’s enjoyment of the game.
