Reword the “Mentors” rule to:-

A Pathfinder may have another Pathfinder as a Mentor. Pathfinders who are willing to act as a Mentor are listed on the Mentorships wiki page, and are said to be “Tenured”. A Pathfinder may add or remove their own name from this list at any time.

If an unmentored Pathfinder requests a Mentor, or a new Pathfinder has joined the game and has no Mentor, the Computer should select a Tenured Pathfinder and ask them to take that Pathfinder on as a Mentee; if they accept, then such a Mentorship is established. The Computer should take care to consider game balance when selecting a potential mentor.

A relationship between a mentor and a mentee is a Mentorship. The members and starting dates of all active Mentorships are tracked on the Mentorships wiki page, and whenever a new Mentorship is established, the Computer should announce it in a blog post. A Pathfinder may dissolve a Mentorship they are part of at any time, by announcing this in a blog post.

If there is no Computer, any Pathfinder who has been active in at least three previous dynasties may act as Computer for the purposes of this rule.

In “Idle Pathfinders”, add “Mentors” to the list of exempt rules, after “Fair Play”.

Add “Publius Scribonius Scholasticus” to the list of Tenured Pathfinders.

Make Derrick the Mentor of Raven1207.

Altering Mentorship to allow idle players to take on the role if they wish (both PSS and Card have expressed such an interest), and loosening the criteria for establishing a Mentorship - right now, Raven1207 cannot legally acquire a Mentor, even if they ask for one, as the existing rule ran out of possible Mentors when they joined and defaulted to “must go without a mentor”.

This also fast-tracks two invalid actions: PSS added themselves as a possible Mentor despite being idle at the time; Derrick agreed to become Raven1207’s Mentor but no rule currently allows it.
