This. Voting when you don't know what the choices mean isn't voting. It's just spinning the wheel to see what happens.

Given that information, I asked if he could come clarify. Nothing I did changed AEG's intent for the path one bit, I just pointed out that there was likely a miscommunication, and I was correct.


And I do thank you for that, Martino, that was very helpful :)

Given this, I am much more reconciled to Option 1. The big question remaining, to my mind, is what to do with the Unicorn alliance, because I really want to see it happen.

Path 4 is great work guys! I totally want to see it as an option and vote for it. It includes exactly what the Left Hand should do imo. Path 1 is the option I would make if we don't have the chance to form a path 4, but it not that Crane-like, let's admit it. I play Crane for honor mainly and switch as a second choice. Path 1 seems like an attempt to become Lion.

Thank you for the kind words :) Dave Laderoute has helpfully clarified that path 1 does not, in fact, lock us out of playing Honour decks, only ensures that those Honour decks will have an emphasis on fighting opposed battles. Which alleviates my rather serious worries about it from earlier. As the conversation on the AEG boards suggests that the costs of Option 4 are less apparent than I would like, I will probably be working on a new draft that makes those clearer. It may also be best to somewhat de-emphasise offensive military action against Kanpeki from the writeup, to more clearly distinguish it from path 1 (and to dispel any perception that it is "path 1 except better", since obviously that's not an acceptable option). Thoughts, everyone?

Agreed on that. Let's make sure that Option 4 looks like an acceptable one for us players and for AEG.

Personally I would save it for a future path. Much like you and I, Unicorn players on the forums represent a small amount of the people who will actually vote on this. I don't want to see our resources go towards forming an alliance with the Unicorn only to have them vote against plan (this is also cautionary given their historically friendly ties with the Spider and against the Lion). If we wait to see what side everyone is actually on, it will be a better time to start forming alliances.

Things gotta change occasionally you know.

"Everything stays the same" is literally the most boring story that players keep trying to adhere to.

We're in the middle of two years of our most successful decks being scout military. I've had enough of it to last me a while.
