to deal with rules clarifications, rule book writing, and addendumsShandar said:Why do we have an Alliance Rules Committee?
the chapters are not. there's a difference between an LCO plot policy and a chapter making its own rules up on the fly constantly.Shandar said:Since the chapters themselves are the end of the proverbial rules road wouldn't it be better to not waste these peoples' time with a bunch of pestering questions?
to deal with the above issue and to share information between chapters to create a more cohesive alliance.Shandar said:Why have a central communication hub at all?
what if my definition of an alliance is "a loose network of people who are all running the same game"Shandar said:Is this an alliance or a loose network of people who are all running the same game?
i don't believe so. nor do i believe in these grave inconsistencies you seem to be alluding to. There are players who visit our chapter and play 5 others consistently each year.... and they love all of them for their own reasons.... that's incredible if you ask me.Shandar said:Isn't it a bit disingenuous to sell this to our players as a national game if it isn't being run in a consistent manner?
show me a chapter that has completely re-written the rules to a wholesale retrofit rather than minor tweaking in order to tell a different story. where is the outcry from players condemning X chapter for the blatant bastardizeation of the rules?Shandar said:There has to be a middle ground somewhere that emphasizes chapter individuality without opening up the rules to wholesale retrofit by the plot committees.
