Genre Proposal: Tremere Subcoordinators and Clan Packet
Coordinator Bylaw 3.c.ii states that Genre Coordinators must pass before Council any plot, enforced policy, R&U Named characters, or binding edict they wish to use which they can reasonably expect to affect multiple chronicles and these proposals need not be seconded, but go immediately into discussion and that if no opposition is voiced during the week of discussion, the proposal is considered passed and enforceable.
This Genre proposal requires no second, and once it is put into discussion, if there are no objections posted here within one week, it goes into effect without a vote. If objections are posted, it is voted on as normally. If posting an objection, please retain the original subject heading, with the addition of the word "OBJECTION", to assist in identifying posts that change this proposal's status.
Reasoning: As written, the current genre rules have an administrative lock to them regarding subcoordinators. However, as the Org expands, the rules prevent more subcoordinators from being appointed to cover the expansion.
Essentially, some games could be covered by a regional subcoordinator portraying a Lord, while other newer games could not.
The proposed rewrite below allows subcoordinators to have multiple lords as needed and removes the geographic references (ex: 1 western, 1 northeastern, etc.) to allow more flexibility and coverage as the Org expands in whatever areas it expands into.
Web site updates have also been. This does not change the current Tremere Thaumaturgy packet. That's an entirely different proposal. This also reflects Council's comments from the previous proposal.
Section 1. Genre information related to Clans
1. Tremere Coordinator involvement r/t Clan / Administrative duties / Rules
i. The current Tremere clan packet is to be considered Thaumaturgy policy for OWbN. It is located at:
http://clans.owbn.org/tremere/library/BloodMagicGuide2.pdf or http://www.owbntremere.com/ under OOC Info -> Blood Magic Packet -> PDF
ii. It is the responsibility of the Tremere Coordinator to keep the rules and guidelines for the different forms of Thaumaturgy current and available for OWbN as a whole.
iii. The Tremere Coordinator shall have Interregional Sub-Coordinators (as determined by regional need and Coordinator approval). During their period as Sub-Coordinator and 3 months beyond their active date, these Sub-Coordinators may not have an active PC that is Tremere or that has a Tremere as a mentor.
1. Interregional Sub-Coordinators: Each of these Sub-Coordinators, are responsible for the pyramidal structure of their area. They are responsible for operating / portraying the area Lord's offices, keeping in regular communication with the Storytellers in their area, and report to the Tremere Coordinator.
a. The Sub-Coordinator coordinating the Lord over a Realm (defined in I.3.ii.1) will answer to all of the local STs in the area that that Lord controls. Storytellers that wish to have the Lord take actions in their game, or actions that affect more than one chronicle must communicate their desire of such with the appropriate subcoordinator in a timely fashion. If the Sub-Coordinator decides it is necessary, it may be brought to the Tremere Coordinator and/or OWbN council.
b. A Lord Sub-Coordinator shall have no more than 7 chantries geographically under their Lord's control. Furthermore, No Pontifex (controlled by the Tremere Coordinator) should have more than 7 Lords in their geographic region. There are Maps on the Tremere clan page showing the regions and how they are divided. ( http://clans.owbn.org/tremere/foyer.html) or
( http://www.owbntremere.com/ IC Info ->, The Pyramid)
c. Interregional Sub-Coordinators are required to make a brief monthly report of the NPC Lord's actions in their area to the Tremere Coordinator. (The idea here is not to overburden Storytellers with more paperwork. This system opens the Interregional Sub-Coordinators to be a shared resource of the Storytellers in their area.)
d. Tremere Sub-Coordinators shall be chosen by the Tremere Coordinator, but may be removed by a majority decision of the Chronicles in the area that that Sub-Coordinator is working in.
