I've seen in time of war appear in some decks, would it have help at all do
you think? (I'm still deciding whether it is worth it or not). On one side
it slows you down a lot, on the other it slows faster honour running clans
down and makes dishonour much more effective for getting control of the

Nearly all the gold can make gold, pretty nice. And have the traveling
caravans proved effective?
Togashi Shinkaze mentioned in his earlier report that Justin Walsh had been
running Trading grounds, at 2 gold they make every holding and can be made
by every holding. Just thought Id mention them since the gold making gold
scheme is good (just look at kosaten shiro). (not because I'm a walsh fanboy
> 2 Campsites
If anyone has read the Crab versus Crane final in the side event you'll
notice the crab player also used campsites to good effect.
We should be able to improve on that as we duel so much better.

Im surprised theres no Daisuke but I guess I see where your going with the
That is a lot of force, did you end up taking any provinces or were you

Nice way to get chi up too as 4 chi doesnt seem to cut it against many clans
these days, if only our tattooed personalities had better personal honour.

Tons of defensive cards, cool...

Is this how you were able to beat other honour runners?
Art/shame and Challange/Code? Ive been massively inclined recently to run
anti honour cards to get control of the favour, and I cant help but notice
that your ph isnt wonderful although I guess thats part of being a dragon
> 2x Sup. Tatics

Suspisions and Imperial gift seem obvious reasons to run this, at least
they're events I fear and being able to get your gift and welcome home off
would be nice too.

You mentioned problems with stand, is this why these two followers? if so
how well has it worked (and as they go their pretty good followers, code of
bushido works with the house guard I guess.... interesting never thought of

Very cool, I like it a lot :)
