Preamble to Bylaw Change

Pass: 5

Fail: 1
Abstain: 1

These bylaws represent the rules upon which the Garou Nation operates. They are the core of our beliefs and the foundation upon which the organization was created. The spirit of intent of these rules are more than the literal words used, and enforcement of them will be based upon that spirit. There will be no "rules-lawyering" of the words in these bylaws. In the event there is disagreement upon the spirit of these rules, the EXO will make the final ruling.

Strike - Tampa

Pass: 8

Fail: 2
Abstain: 0

Last Stand proposes that a strike be given to the TGN Chronicle Tampa:Dark Eclipse for violation of Bylaw 6, regarding experience. We believe that the Storytellers of Dark Eclipse have violated this bylaw, in regards to the character Victor "Hell Hound" Dragomir. We believe the player was allowed to bank approximately 150 XP over a couple of years and allowed to put all of those points onto the character he created in December 2009. These experience points were put into a file with no character information, only the player's name and we do not believe that constitutes "character creation" according to Bylaw 6. The lack of a created character was verified with the player and discussed with the DE staff. The lack of character was further confirmed in the extent that it was not mentioned during the player's application to the Shadowlord TM position in 2009. For these reasons we believe that Tampa: Dark Ecplise should receive an organizational strike.

Bylaw 6 Change

Pass: 11

Fail: 2
Abstain: 0

Bylaw 6 - Experience Only fully approved characters with completed sheets may earn XP. In order to ensure that all characters advance at similar rates, no character may earn more than eight Experience points (XP) of any type per month. Storytellers may award XP for any reason, but the points must be approved in the chronicle the character they are being placed upon is based. XP must remain on the character it was initially assigned to, and may not be shuffled from character to character for any reason. In the event a character dies, retires, or is otherwise rendered unplayable through any means, that character's unspent XP may be rolled over onto the player's next new character at the discretion of the administrating Storytellers for both characters. Storytellers may also award extra XP at character creation for any reason. The total amount of XP granted at character creation, including rollover and Storyteller discretionary awards, may not exceed 25. Note that these are not Character Creation points, they are Experience points.

ShadowLord TM Removal

TIE BROKE: EXO voted Fail

Pass: 5
Fail: 5
Abstain: 2

Travis Gibb: It is the Opinion of Madison 10 Mile island and several of it's players that Travis Gibb has failed to carry out the duties of the office of Shadowlord TM. We feel that among his infractions are: Breaking established genre (Thrones), Poor understanding and implementation of tribal procedures and NPCs (the issues with the Grand Master), an Unwillingness to work with org Storytellers (again the GM issue), and a fundamental difficulty communicating with games and players. We would like to call for his removal from the position of Shadowlord TM, and the appointment of a new TM to handle the tribe and correct his mistakes.

Bylaw R&U Policy Change - Loosen Stargazer R&U Restrictions

Fail: 3

Pass: 6
Abstain: 1

Loosen Stargazer R&U Restrictions: Create another level of R&U and change the rarity rating for some types of PC's. Proposed by Kenosha, seconded by Madison We suggest creating a separate level of R&U, called Uncommon. Uncommon creatures would be Corax, Stargazers and Red Talons. This means one additional Uncommon TM to run them (but that is beneficial to all three, as they currently get lost by sharing TMs with all the other fera or with the Purelanders). Uncommon characters would still be required to submit a completed sheet to the ST list, have a two week discussion for objections, go to vote if objected - just like R&U creatures. However, once approved for play, the first one of each of these three creature types in play do not count against a chronicle's 10% allowance. If a game wanted a second Stargazer, that second character would count towards the 10%. So, for example, a game could have one Stargazer and one Red Talon, and still have 0% R&U. We would have to agree to grandfather in existing PCs as Uncommon, as I know there are chronicles with several Red Talons.

Admin Policy Change - Voting Policy Revision

Pass: 8

Fail: 4
Abstain: 0

Amendment to the Voting Policies Proposed by RVR, seconded by Fate This would add the following paragraph: Results of all votes done by the board will be determined by the option receiving the greatest number of votes, except changes to the Core 10 Bylaws and Legend Rank approvals, which need a two-thirds majority of total chronicles who have voting privileges in the org to pass. In the event of a tie, the EXO makes the final decision from the tied options. If a chronicle fails to vote in three or more votes during a single year, the EXO may propose that chronicle receive Disciplinary Strikes, up to and including removal from the organization.
