I'd suggest that players from the last game with the most activity be allowed to be the highest level positions. Untested or returning players with a more spotty background should have to take on minor clans. Just a thought. Inactivity kills games fast.
I need to read carefully through all the stuff before decide firmly what I would love to play. But seems it will be good, as the game is heavily oriented to team play, or at least it seems so. But source domain, anything sounds interesting.
I share Tristan's view. On a minor note, should there be a starting story line / plot which might be used as a fuse to kickstart interaction?
Well that's one of the reasons I wanted to know who wanted to play what, so I didn't make up a story line revolving around Temple matters if nobody wants to play a temple. It also helps me figure out what part of the map to use.

My suggestion would be to start with the idea that everyone is a landed regent and cram us into the smallest possible area, with plot walls explaining why we don't get out of the sandbox (i.e. it is dishonorable to intrude in the internal affairs of another region). Once you've filled the sandbox with landed regents add in the temples/merchants that are regional powers (fill one first) then add wizards at the very end.
Above all I want almost all of my interactions to be with other PC's and not NPC's.
Pretty happy playing anything though I would definitely concur with the desire of others to maximise PC interaction in an area. Happy enough to play a temple if nobody else is keen. Just need to flesh out the theology and who are the heretics who need to be burnt.
As far as cramming people into a sandbox, that has been established. And I am getting the impression that most folks won't mind being a landed regent, so I will be making up a list of positions. I am leaning on it being the western end of the island
Takahashi Rin - Tkh (Maggie): Oh that should be cool Jeroen, we'll have to make it a priority to get you holdings (temple right?) as soon as possible. Maybe once you have one established on the mainland you should make a bunch of 0 levels in provinces before we invade them so you can

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Well, I'll be quite honest, with all the wars going on I only still have one realm spell right now. No time for research though it is planned for next turn. (I'm Kazuko mainly, only minor Bosan.)

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Though considering this is rather expansive undertaking I should surely be able to invest more into the magic. (I can cast Bless Army now but considering my low caster level..)

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Some of the possible spells might be useful however and it's always an extra edge. If I would get involved direcetly I could invest in Clap of Heavenly Thunder. Nothing quite says moral superiority like slap from the Kami.

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Small update of my Clan history. I'll keep making and adding small rumours as we go
