Proposal: Last Orders

Reached quorum 12 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 18 Dec 2012 01:47:03 UTC

Rename the rule “Secret Orders” to “Secret Requirements”.

Add a new subrule to “Cults”, called “Orders”:-

Believers may send Private Messages to the Auspex at any time; these are known as Orders. If a rule says that the Leader of Cult may do something “by Command”, then the action performable by Command may be requested by submitting an Order with this precise instruction; the action described may then be performed by the Auspex, while the Order exists - upon the Auspex performing such a Command, the Order ceases to be an Order. This is the only way by which an action performable “by Command” may be performed.

If an Order is more than 48 hours old, it ceases to be an Order.

Replace “secret action” with “Order” throughout the ruleset.

Replace “form a new Cult by sending a Private Message to the Auspex” with “form a new Cult by submitting an Order”.

Replace the text beginning “Believers may send Private Messages…” and ending “...and delete both messages.” with:-

A Leader of a Cult may admit a Believer to that Cult by Command, so long as that Believer has sent an Order requesting such admission, and both the Believer and Leader are located in the Headquarters of the Leader’s Cult.

Replace the paragraph beginning “If the Auspex has a Private Message…” with:-

The Leader of a Cult may add, remove, or modify a Secret Requirement of that Cult, by command. Upon processing such a Command, the Auspex should send a Private Message to all members of that Cult, listing its new Secret Requirements.

If the proposal “Passing the Torch” enacted, replace the text it added to the ruleset with:-

A Leader of a Cult may transfer his or her leadership to any other Believer in that Cult, by Command, so long as that Believer has sent an Order accepting such a transfer. Upon processing such an action, the nominated member becomes the Leader of the Cult, in place of the previous Leader.

If the text “A Cult Leader may at any time PM the Auspex and disband his cult and have the name of the cult removed from the wiki.” exists in the ruleset, replace it with:-

The Leader of a Cult may disband that Cult by command. When a Cult is disbanded, it ceases to exist.

If the rule “Philosophical Realignment” exists, replace “Private Message” with “Order” throughout it.

If a rule exists called “Inquisitions”, replace “sending Auspex a private message” with “submitting an Order” within in.

After the first sentence of the rule “Cults”, add:-

The Leader of a Cult is considered to belong to that Cult.

Just some workaday keyword building - defining PMs to the Auspex as “Orders” and/or “Commands”, so that we can just say “A Leader may do X by command.” instead of having to faff around explaining it in detail each time. And while I’m here, clarifying that the Leader of a Cult is also a member of it.
