Remove “If an Agent has a Codename but no Allegiance, the D-Ops shall set their Allegiance to Independent. As a Weekly Action, an Agent may Telephone the Director of Ops and request a change of Allegiance. The D-Ops may effect this change at their discretion, and will notify the Agent when done.” from Rule 2.2, and enact a new subrule to Rule 2.2 (Allegiances):-
If an Agent has a Codename but no Allegiance, the D-Ops shall set their Allegiance to Independent.
As a weekly action, an Agent (the “Defector”) may Telephone D-Ops with the Codename of an Agent they believe has recruited them. When D-Ops reads this Telephone message: if an Agent has the specified Codename and is in the same Location as the Defector, then the Defector’s Allegiance is altered to match that of the Agent with the specified Codename. If the Defector’s Allegiance changes as a result of this, the Defector shall be informed of this fact (although they will not be told their new Allegiance). If it does not, the Defector shall be told that the Defection failed to occur.
Altering Allegiance-changing to require some effort on the part of a recruiter, and leaving some room for not always being entirely sure which side you’ve been recruited to.
