And now a long answer, which is a repetition of what I posted on FB.
But I can BOLD THINGS HERE. Whoo! BOLD!
CHANGING RESOURCE AND THE SYNOD
For Avoidance of Doubt. Because it came up several times this event and there has been lots of awkward different calls in the past.
DISCLAIMER: This is how it is AT THE MOMENT with me, John (who plays Adam) and Vikiy (who plays Almodis) administrating the Synod.
If this changes, we will TRY and announce it.
Will hopefully be able to slap something similar on the wiki.
This is still technically unofficial, but hopefully accurate.
**Changing Resource to Congregation **
Thiscan be done at the event by going to God (not the Hub CS) and paying two Crowns or starting a two Crown debt. Or it can be done in downtime to be ready for the next event.
(See: profounddecisions.co.uk/empi … _Resources)
Because the actual change to running a congregation…
…as in actually preaching to the populace for 3 months obviously can’t happen at Anvil…
…YOU CANNOT VOTE OR STAND FOR ANY POSITION THAT REQUIRES YOU TO HOLD A CONGREGATION AT THE EVENT YOU CHANGE TO A CONGREGATION
(And nor can you be a legit proxie because you have to be valid candidate for that Title to be a legal proxy)
If you change in downtime by emailing PD, then you are totally eligible for all Synod jam at the next event.
(PMing me to make sure my list has you is a good idea)
CHANGING YOUR DEDICATION AT AN EVENT
Will not move you out of your current Virtue Assembly. Because the populace still recognise you as dedicated priest of your former Virtue.
The abstraction layer vaguely assumes that you preach most about the Virtue you’re dedicated to.*
At the next event you should be in the Virtue Assembly that you left the current event with.
CHANGING YOUR NATIONALITY AT AN EVENT
This can change your national assembly, but we will require confirmation from the Egregore of your old or new nation that you’ve changed.
BUT WHAT ABOUT A SINECURE?!
… Ok… yeah a Synod Sinecure does add to your votes midevent if you get appointed to it, and if you don’t already have a congregation then you can now use the votes in the relevant Virtue Assembly, National Assembly and General Assembly.
AND you have all the powers of a Synod priest such as raising a judgement, Clemency, Sanctuary right of witness etc.
*(The authority here comes with the faddish citizens who have already gone to see awe-inspiring shrine/ the headless corpse of the Young Empress face down in a muddy ditch.)
PROXY SYNOD SINECURE HOLDERS
A sinecure that grants votes CAN be proxied, although I understand the liao still goes to the holder.
A Proxy Sinecure holder adopts their own nationality/dedicated virtue, not that of the actual Sinecure holder.
BUT SAMSON! WHAT ABOUT INHERITING CONGREGATIONS OR SPOILS OF WAR?
FFS AGHR WTF BBQ… I’ll get an answer to this and/or my mother’s Axe…
(My current guess is that it would not kick in immediately, but this is a very unofficial answer.)
