Okay, I'm sorry, but this has gone on long enough. The same arguments are
being heard, in different forms. Bsically it coms down to this. If you
believe that Torgo should not be a legal target for LotP, play it that way
if not, don't. I thought the Senator-President comparison was just a little
out there. We are talking about a card game. K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Stupid!
There is no Ganger President, etc. I don't mean to start another argument
with this, god forbid, but to point out that this is a game, and we should
keep our arguments entirely technical. Yes it is all well and good to say
"Well in the real world..." but SRTCG is at best a cheap imitation. I don't
see how you're going to fit my Lord Torgo into Hollywood's Heavy Armor in
the real world, but in the CCG I have no problem with it.
