Rumor has it Kira (Amy) posted the new rules that passed (a lot of which are * dumb, if the rumors are true) on Monday on the Darkon Facebook Group.

Still haven't seen what they are on here... It's Wednesday.

Don't believe the rumors. They're all... Mostly... great changes.
Basic overviews from Amy's post on the Darkon group:

Mage Proposal ( Sergio)
Defeated with the exception of one new spell Frost Spike level 1 This spell allows the Mage to call forth a spike of ice, which causes white damage upon impact and does Ice damage to creatures affected by damage specific types. The Mage can cast 1 Frost Spike for every 2 ranks, rounded down, to a max of 3 Frost Spikes.

Potions and Scrolls ( Fingers)
Passed
Changes:Potions and Scrolls have all costs changed from silver to gold. Elders and NPCs can now make potions/scrolls on adventure days as other players can.

Giant Growth ( Fingers)
Passed.
Changes: Giant Growth no longer affects other players and is only useable vs. giant sized creatures. Fingers kindly posted the language of the whole rule change earlier.

Weapons Proposal (Tyriel)
Passed.
Changes : Review the physical copies or Tyriel's post provided to your senators or on the Boards (need link)

Magic and holy prop ( Inox)
Passed.
Changes: Mages an create one magic weapon, magic weapons do what True Strike does now, True Strike weapons can affect any NPC creature with immunities.

Warrior Mage/Mage/ Fighter Changes ( Inox)
Passed
Changes- missle Ward replaced with Magic Shield ( per the Mage spell) Magic Shield can deflect any single target spellball and is not affected by warp wood. Warrir Mages add Truthspeak to the spell list at 3rd level. WM Cure Light Wounds is replaced with First Aid. WM and Fighter First Aid now fully restores the affected limb after 5 minutes.Cater is now immune to the effects of their own Dispel Magic unless they wish to be included.

Nobility/Cavalier ( Inox)
Passed.
Changes – You may only obtain Archduke by being Prince rank when you become King. Cavaliers are no longer bound to alignment rules including sashes or code, and no longer have to wear armor at all times. Must have holy symbol.

Javelin of Lightning ( TJ)
Passed.
Changes: When thrown, the Javelin acts like a lightning rod. Once it strikes its intended target, it does magic red damage as if it were an enchanted javelin, then immediately calls down lightning and does a lightning bolt attack (as per the spell). No melee stabbing.

Daggers For Clerics ( Keira)
Passed.
Clerics have daggers added to their weapon list.

In addition, there will be no more ring fights for king. A crown war will be the only way to ascend to the throne. After the field battle, the contender and sitting king may agree to a ring fight if they wish, in lieu of a siege of Tarimstadt. They must abide by the outcome of this fight if they choose to do it.

Personally I would love to see the armies meet, the King and his Challenger begin a trial by combat as the armies cheer....then I backstab some mutha * and anarchy reigns!

Unless the rules change is a Bylaws change it will only ever go into affect January 1 or July 1 of the year. This simplifies things and gives people a chance to learn the rules before they are put into play/taken out of play.

but it looks like the new EB was immediate as I think Gerrard is acting as president right?

No, Gerard will take over on July 1st as well. Andrick was present and acting as President for the EB voting on the above items, and he will continue to be President until July 1st.
