A many people, especially me have pointed out, there is technically no =
contradiction. I you really want to read to much into it, then you can =
see conflicting logic, but technically a Rat Totem will never make any =
one a "Rat Shaman", and the DLOH's already confirmed that Scatter does =
not receive the benifits of a Rat Totem.

Again, that really wasn't nececary. I must admit to a certain degree of =
frustration myself, with this debate, but I really don't thin anyone has =
the right to talk about the other person like they were an idiot.

Again the biting sarcasm, it is not appreciated.

I _highly_

So do I, I merely think they intended that she was a Shaman who sympathis=
ed with the Rat, etc. What I meant to do is say, again, that technically,=
in SRTCG terms, the "Rat" part of Scatter's "Rat Shaman" tittle is
y an honorarium, a decoration, as it were, and, as the Totem cards do not=
change the tittle of shamans, it is totally meaningless when it comes =
to game play. Ganger Leader, since the release of Underworld, has come =
to have meaning, and thus it is a different situation.

It's not that I don't want to hear your input, I just don't want you talk=

I wouldn't consider it fair to not allow you a response.

There, hopefully this will be one of the last posts on the subject, Sorry=
