Where is the discussion?

Post by Sir Aethilgar » 2013-06-14

Greetings all;

I know this has been a hot topic over the last year but where are we in the discussion?

I don't want us to drop the ball on this one.

specifically

"1. A. Proposal to add new definitions and remove some incorrect statements:
Chapter Agreement
This is the contract between Darkon Wargaming Club, Inc. and another club that wishes to be part of the Darkon gaming system and world. Anytime there is a contradiction between the rules in this manual and the Chapter Agreement, the agreement always takes precedent and supersedes the rules of play.
The Club
The club is the real world organization that manages the game. It consists of the membership, as defined by the clubs bylaws, and is governed and managed in accordance with the clubs bylaws. The game system is designed so that many clubs can co-exist and interact with each other in the fantasy world created by the game. Each club is independent of each other but all follow the same core rules. Each club has signed a Chapter Contract with Darkon Wargaming Club, Inc. agreeing to play by the core rules.
The Rules
Core Rules
Core rules make up the bulk of this book. They are static and so do not change from club to club. As of this publication, only Darkon Wargaming Club, Inc. has the authority to change any of the core rules.
Realm Rules
Realm rules are those rules that are used locally by the club. The club may change these rules as they see fit.
The Game
The game is the result of following these rules. In the game is a fantasy world in which exists “realms”. In this fantasy world is magic, war, people (the characters), professions, mythical monsters and intrigue. The game should never be confused with the real world and activities in the game are fantasy and should not be related into the real world.
The World
The world is known as Darkon. Darkon is a fantasy world that is created when the rules of this gaming system are in effect.
The Realm
“The Realm” is the section of the world your character lives and is the in-game identity of the club. For example the Darkon Wargaming Club, Inc. has the in-game identity of the “Realm of Darkon”.

1.B. In addition I would like the following paragraph added to Participants:
A participant is a person that has joined a club that utilizes this gaming system. This person should not be confused with the character they portray in the game. Players may only belong to and get credit with one club at a time (special arrangements can be made when visiting other chapters). When the term “member-in-good-standing” is used it means a player that has paid their dues and is not currently suspended from game play.
and
Participants may move to another region and join another Darkon chapter. The player may then transfer all characters with full credits and awards to the new club as provided in the chapter agreement.

1.C.Add the following to CHARACTERS:
This is a fictional being that is being portrayed by a participant. This being only exists in the scope of the game and the actions of this being should not be taken as the actions of the participant. This being lives according to the rules of the game and exists only at the whim of the participant.

1.D.and remove from PARTICIPANTS:
New participants will pay a onetime, non-refundable, membership fee upon joining, as well as any dues for insurance (if applicable). Participant will then be given a rulebook.


senate on 5/5/2013, BD on 5/7/2013
passed this as written above "

So June 30 added definitions but not actual documents for the Chapter Agreement?

This is a good question. Does this mean that chapter can now happen, or is it just the set up for it?

If I'm reading this correctly; neither. It simply sets the vocabulary to be used in setting up chapters.

Have I got that correct?

correct - It simply sets the vocabulary to be used in setting up chapters. Now the next steps can go forward with reviewing of the hard work John has done in drafting some things to discuss going forward - there is no date set for this and we probably should set up a review committee the same way we did for the bylaws review.

Well what do we do next then? Tell me things so I can do them. We need to get this going and be serious about it. There is no reason our friends around the nation that play with our rules, can't be a part of us. I don't feel its fair to them. So what is the next step?

Next senate the chapter agreement and a few other things can be brought up for a vote ... if needed we should set a group up to go over anything that needs working out the kinks on. I believe that is where we are at atm ... the senate has gotten a copy of the proposed chapter agreement for them to review and communicate with their countries.

Chapter Agreement is the main thing that needs to happen to allow chapters to form.
