Perhaps something like:

There exist Game Documents known as Laws. Laws may only be modified, 
created, or destroyed as described in the Rules.

A Law may either Mandate or Forbid Players from taking some Game Action 
under certain circumstances (or at all times). In the case that a Law 
Mandates an Action, it must specify a Deadline, before which either the 
Game Action must be performed. In either case, the Law specifies 
Consequences which will occur, should the player fail to comply with the 

Consequences are changes to the Gamestate which must fall under one of 
the following headings:

Should a Law Mandate that a Player perform some Game Action, but the 
Rules do not allow the Player to perform the Game Action in question, 
the Law's Consequences do not occur. Should a Law Forbid a Player from 
performing a Game Action Mandated by another Law, the Consequences 
described in the Law Forbidding the Game Action do not occur.
