Out of curiosity, just where could I find a list of reserved game terms?
It's rather relevent to the absurdity here discussed, and I was curious. I
did a quick flip through a rulebook I have from a deck or two, and saw no
master lists. What defines a reserved term? I could see things like
"sensei" and the like, as they're card types, but other things, like
"weapon" are not technically card types-they're just instances of another
kind of card (item, in this case). Yet many such words are still
reserved. Is there a list anywhere? I'd be curious as to what is fully
reserved terms and all. Thanks a lot!

And it's a real pity that that combo is so cumbersome for us to pull off,
or that would rock! <G> Hehehe. Ah well, no broken cheese for us. :P
