A summary of the arguments so far.
Hopefully I'm not putting words in people's mouths.
1. (Togashi Kenryoku) "Dragon must only be honorable, and if you play with
taint in your deck you are a VERY BAD MAN, in real life, 'cause you're
beating us at our game and ruining it for the other kids, and I have no
perspective, and very little grasp of grammar."
[Okay, so I embellished this argument a bit. But *come on*.]
2. (Shosei) "Er, there is a distinction between *players* and *card games*,
plus even in-game it's not so simple. There are many factions, and there
are a lot of things that 'corruption' can symbolize. If you think this is
all good-vs-evil, you probably got your boxes of the Star Wars CCG mixed up
with your L5R starters."
[There was a lot more insightful commentary here, on account of Matt knows a
boatload about the storyline. If you *really* want to know what the Taint
is, and what it does, read "Fortunes and Winds" for the RPG, particularly
the section about "Jigoku's control".]
3. (Hamaki) "Be EEEEEEVIL."
[to be honest I don't think he's spoken in this debate]
4. (Knish) "If you want honorable wins, build good honorable decks and beat
other players. Regardless, build *many* decks and see what works. As this
is a card game, no *gameplay* thing that's done makes someone a bad man.
Unless they're the Gray Wolf. That fuc]<3r."
[again, embellished for illustrative purposes. Gray Wolf comments based on
the Unicorn list.]
5. (Kitsuki Mitsu) "Shosei is dumb, 'cause he doesn't immediately decry all
taint, clearly he is a maho-tsukai. No, I can't read the 'Jade Hand' trait
in his sig."
What have I missed so far?
