i smell the stink of fear - not willing to risk some worthless samurai, most cowardly! resorting to offering financial terms like a merchant - the lowest of classes...
U lose - Retire Date (or next highest value player if he dies before or during the game)
I Lose - You get to chose my next sandgroper team, name it and work out the roster (thus saving me the effort) - and i will buy a new team if necessary to facilitate ur choice.
what say you, u snivelling busu!
I simply offered a set of terms that a dwarf would understand and fear, losing their one true love of gold. I'm not an eta whose concerns are monetary, I am of the buke, a might bushi, a warrior who knows no fear. If defeat is what I face then death awaits me. Date will not retire, he will be treated as a misc death at the end of the game, as he seeks his shame in battle.
So the terms are Date will fall on his sword at the end of our match if defeat is known to me. If you suffer the dishonor of defeat your team will be chosen by me in it's entirety for Sandgroper 8.
May this be a lesson to you not to make bets that you can't keep.
