Caller's Arguments:

Peekee argues that defining a Currency as Basic places restrictions
on Players, so Rule 1591 (Jurisdiction of SLCs) gives SLCs the
Rule-like ability to define Currencies as Basic.  I argue that
Rule 1911 (Basic Currencies) is what places restrictions on Players,
so nothing conflicts with its claim that only the Rules can
effectively define Basic Currencies.


Evidence attached by the Caller:

Rule 1911/0 (Power=1)
Basic Currencies

      A Currency is a Basic Currency only if defined as such by the

      Each Player has at most one Associated Basic Currency (ABC).
      Initially, Players have no ABC.  A Player who has no ABC may
      associate a Basic Currency with emself by declaring that e
      does so, and stating which Basic Currency is so associated,
      in the Public Forum.  A Player who has an ABC may change eir
      ABC by the same method, but only if:
      a) it has been at least 3 months since eir ABC was last set or
      changed, OR
      b) if the Currency which is to be eir new ABC became a Basic
      Currency more recently than eir ABC was last set or changed.

      A Player with an ABC may never cease to have any ABC at all,
      unless e ceases to be a Player, or eir ABC ceases to be a Basic

Rule 1591/0 (Power=1)
Jurisdiction of SLCs

      A SLC has the power to constrain the actions of Players in
      the same manner as the Rules.  However, a SLC has power over
      only those Players within its Jurisdiction, as defined in the
      Rules authorizing that SLC.

      The Jurisdiction of a SLC must be specified by the Rules,
      either directly or indirectly.  If the Jurisdiction of a SLC
      might vary over the course of the existence of the SLC, the
      Rules must specify a Player who is required to maintain a record
      of which Players are within the Jurisdiction of that SLC.


Judge's Arguments:

I think that what places restrictions is *the adoption of* Rule 1911,
and not the rule in itself. Once the Rule is adopted, it just defines
the reality, which is that Currencies come in two flavours, Basic and
