Article 3: Accepting the Consequences

If you are visiting another chronicle you have agreed to abide by the rulings of their storytellers and to accept the consequences of playing in that game. If you go to another chronicle know that the storytellers have
every right to put you in a box and ship you to the moon if they want. Your character is subject to the same consequences you may face in your home chronicle, and maybe even more. If you don't like a set of storytellers or
the way a particular game does something, DON"T GO! If they are unfair in what they do, complain to your home chronicle storytellers (like everyone doesn't know how to do that already) and ask them to have the appropriate ST
reconsider the actions taken. Maybe there are circumstances you don't know about. Maybe it's the culmination of a very long character plot. You don't know. Maybe the ST's decided enough is enough and the 'Powers that Be' had taken notice and appropriate action. Maybe you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

be rewritten as follows:

Choice 1
When visiting another chronicle, a player automatically has agreed to abide by the rulings of that chronicle's storytellers and to accept the consequences of playing in that game. Know that the storytellers have every right to cause pain, misery, suffering and death to a character if they so choose. A character is subject to the same consequences they may face in their home chronicle, and perhaps more. If a player doesn't approve of a chronicle's storytellers or the way a particular game does something, it is common sense that they do not attend a game for that chronicle.

If a player feels that the storytellers have been unfair in an adjudication, that player may bring their grievances to their home chronicle's storytellers and ask them to mediate the grievance with the appropriate Storyteller of the chronicle where the actions occurred. Players should keep in mind that there could be circumstances that they, as a player, may not know about.

In cases where the player's home chronicle storytellers feel that their player has been treated unfairly and cannot reach an agreement with the visited chronicle's Storytellers, the matter shall be brought before the Head Coordinator's Office and either adjudicated by that office or recommended for a vote before the OWbN Council with all gathered information presented to Council so that an informative decision can be made. Adjudication by the Head Coordinator's Office or the OWbN Council shall be considered final in the matter.

Choice 2
When visiting another chronicle, a player automatically has agreed to abide by the rulings of that chronicle's storytellers and to accept the consequences of playing in that game. Know that the storytellers have every right to cause pain, misery, suffering and death to a character if they so choose. A character is subject to the same consequences they may face in their home chronicle, and perhaps more. If a player doesn't approve of a chronicle's storytellers or the way a particular game does something, it is common sense that they do not attend a game for that chronicle.

Choice 3 - Christina Peterson
When visiting another chronicle, a player automatically has
agreed to abide by all rulings of that chronicle's storytellers and to accept the consequences of playing in that game. If a player doesn't approve of a chronicle's storytellers or the way a particular game does something, it is common sense that they do not attend that chronicle's game. It is the right of the player to bring grievances to their home chronicle's storyteller(s) in the event of unfair adjudication by the storyteller(s) of another chronicle.
