[Proposal] [Autopass] [Bylaw] Kuei-jin Bylaw Updates

Open Votes

Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision
Opened: 07-Aug-2018 12:00AM EDT
Closing: 07-Aug-2018 12:00AM EDT


Per  Coordinator Bylaw 3.C.iii, and per a request of the archivist (thanks for your patience, Mark!) to include the exact text of several controlled items listed in the packet, I’d like to propose several updates to the Character Bylaws for Kuei-jin.  The majoriy of these items were contained within the packet,  or are being moved to clarify placement in the bylaws.  In addition, I’m adding possession of Kuei-jin Lore above 3 as Notify – per the Laws of the East and the previous versions of the packet, possession of the lore above this level requires a boon with the Bone Court, or a similar organization, and it has come to my attention that some individuals did not notice that requirement.

 

This proposal has the potential to auto-pass.

 

No grandfathering is to be included, as these requirements all stood in previous versions of the packet.
