I was thinking of something like removing the restriction for Gold format
tournaments. But if we want to come up with a more complicated rule, that'd
be cool too. I like some of the Scorpion Ninja, and I actually toyed around
with using their Tactician Ninja in a Gold military deck. The honor loss
hurts too much though...
But anyway... I *like* the idea of hiring a Ninja Spy. It's cool, and
very Rokugan. It was really a blow when that meant you were dabbling with
the Shadow -- it took away something really cool in the game. Maybe we
should submit a "Tattooed Spy" of some type for release in a Gold expansion.
Someone with tattoos that make him hard to see... Hmm...
