So I've actually decided to be a sort of "Black Lion" a while ago, making a Honor Runing Paragon Deck full of both Bushido and Dark Virtues, and Dark Oracle of Fire. I don't know if that counts, but point being do you know who to direct me to so I can find out more about these Black Lions?
As the Mod who was first to have the two banners, I think I can explain this.
First, the Unity banner. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Black Lion. I had that banner made for me by a Crane player, as a reward for contributing to a Crane Honor victory at a Chicago Kotei. I likes me the honorable Lion/Crane combo, personally, so I had it made to suit personal happiness.
As for the Black Lion, you can stop on by the Dark Lion Dojo forum for a lot more information about the Black Lion. It is in fact a player-created thing, representing the part of the Lion Clan that realizes that an army simply has to do some dishonorable things. And the Black Lion is built on the premise that it's members are willing to sacrifice their honor, in addition to the already existing willingness to sacrifice everything else, for the good of the Lion Clan and the Empire of Rokugan. For example, the first Black Lion was Toturi, who was cast out of the honorable ranks of the Lion, but never stopped fighting for the good of the Empire, and was eventually recognized for the heroism he displayed despite his dishonorable tactics at times. *shrug* It's literally an interesting counterbalance to the White Lion, really. Anyway, we'vd love to have a new "member," so stop on by!
I like your reasoning.
I am proud to be a Black Lion. One of many...
What am I playing now? [still in development]
