divine protection.

Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

There are three contentious issues re: interplay with legions - namely

doing so while pacifist, duellist or divinely protected. One of the

intentions with warfare was to create a whole facet of the Avalon

gameworld where melee was not the be-all and end-all; important though

it remains. Hence allowing everyone to interact with legions, even

in an aggressive capacity. I doubt Napoleon would have been the fine

campaigner he proved to be if he'd had to resort to physically fighting

his way to the top; yet mighty general he was.

So saying, divine protection as an ephemeral 'interlude' between

periods of combat can't be seen as the same as the definitive lifechoices

of duellism and pacifism. The debate over pacifists interacting

belligerently with legions can continue; but I'll make two rulings here

and now:

From the coming Avalon New Year, 1253, the divinely protected WILL be

restricted in their free use of legions; aggressive acts will offer the

choice of breaking protection or retaining it and not commiting 'em.

Duellist status, on the other hand, will be NO hindrance to free and

full use of legions in whatever capacity, aggressive or otherwise.
