Just a heads up that I started a cabal at the ST site for Japan, called The Honor
That said, I've had requests from people to join the Cabal that don't live
in Japan. I'm afraid that this goes against my understanding of what a Cabal should be--a geographically linked group of like mind. Also, I've noted some people joining multiple
Cabals, which doesn't make much sense to me. On these topics, I'm hoping to generate discussion here.
First, though, I started "The Honor" for ST folks living in Japan. Second, the Cabal says that it's for "warriors". Now, how people percieve that this fits in with a game about casting spells is certainly a topic I'm up for discussing as well, but I think players that both live and Japan AND identify with this idea of a more "warrior's way" of approaching the game may like to join. I'm all for some kindered play.
I certainly look forward to seeing other Cabals in Japan--rival schools of thought are always welcome!
