((OOC, of course!))

Hi guys, super excited to be playing on the coming Amles 3 day, but I have a question regarding the new Amles status, and more specifically it's restrictions.

This would be for my Spy multiclassed Actor, who is currently daimyo of the Haiyū family of the Dragon Clan.

Now prior to this I have already passed IC sentence on a peasant, which is why I feel it is important for me to look into getting this and purchasing up to the relevant tier, even though Yang-To is a full head of a clan.

But the problem this has is the requirement to follow the Jade code, namely the following parts:


"Always display your clan/family symbol"

"Be honest throughout your dealings with all people"

"Be true to your word"


All of these requirements basically completely screw over my character who specialises in Disguising himself and others, and performing the necessary dishonourable acts that would otherwise bring shame to the emperor or his clan.

So what should I do? My gut is saying just don't buy the status, but my current IC standing is kind of forcing me into buying it. I certainly don't see him holding the same rank as Samurai, as he is of Artisan Caste. (Though how I'm supposed to buy the appropriate caste is also unclear in the handbook, is there a cost to that too?)

Answers/advice on a postcard. Ta! smile.gif

Andy is correct.


The status is written from a generic point of view of what society believes someone in a position of power should be/do.

So you are able to defend us (fight) and will be honourable, and will do what's right.


That's not to say you can't be important and do different, but remember it will be more difficult (cost more points relative to the benefits) to do this.
