Proposal: Let Kids Be Kids

Times out and passes at 7-1. -Purplebeard

In Rule 2.4.2 Circle of Life, replace the entire text with the following:

Every Monday, if there exist any Adult Mortals, and if no Divinity has done so that day, any Divinity may choose a random Adult Mortal.  That Mortal becomes Dead.  Every Wednesday, if there exist any Child Mortals, and if no Divinity has done so that day, any Divinity may choose a random Child Mortal.  That Mortal becomes an Adult. 

Every Friday, if there exist less than half of Quorum non-Dead mortals, and if no Divinity has done so that day, any Divinity may randomly choose an integer between 1 and 10, inclusive. They may then create a new Child mortal with any unused name [choice of the Divinity who creates it] and vulnerability according to this table:

  * 1-2: Ephemeral
  * 3-4: Material
  * 5-6: Domestic
  * 7: Ephemeral and Material
  * 8: Ephemeral and Domestic
  * 9: Material and Domestic
  * 10: Create two mortals instead, by the same process.

Re-ordering birth, ageing and death to allow Children to remain Children for more than two days, and increasing the likelihood that the Gatekeeper will have an heir should they die.  If we pass this rule we may need to adjust the ways that an Age can end, or create other methods of death (infant mortality, please!).  Perhaps we could allow a Divinity to spend a significant about of Prominence (XXX, say) to create or kill any Mortal of their choice at any time.
