Administrative Proposal: Bylaw Addition: Cold Embraces, Section 2.D
I hereby propose the following revision to Character Regulation Bylaws, section "2. New Character Creation" to prevent cold embraces, as these usually result in OOC discipline harvesting and other methods to obtain cheesy stuff.
I would note that if someone thinks they have a legitimate cold-embraced Vampire background that is not necessarily standard practice but is genre-acceptable they may attempt to petition to Council for an exemption to this bylaw.
Please note that "The Curse Belated" is genre acceptable for Clan Tremere, directly involves the Sire, and is therefore not considered a cold embrace.
"2) New Character Creation
A) A new player character shall be restricted
to the points allowed under standard character
creation in the appropriate Mind's Eye Theater rules,
plus up to thirty (30) experience points.
i) Any awards of traits, abilities, or other character
statistics count towards this limit as the amount of
experience that the player would have had to spend to
purchase that particular statistic.
B) Up to thirty (30) unspent experience from a
previous character may be rolled over into the new
character, however the combined total from storyteller
awards and unspent experience may not total more than
thirty experience points for any reason. Any awards
made towards the creation of a new character must be
made within three game sessions of the character
i) These points may be spent only as
Experience points, not as creation points. This
spending should follow your Chronicle
