Bonuses while having Backstab dice

Post by Omega Prime » Mon Jan 15, 2018 1:51 am

Is it good/ok to have a unit which gets bonuses whether or not the faction currently has Backstab dice with another faction? For example, if I gave a unit this specialty: "while the faction this unit belongs to has Backstab dice with another faction, get +1 to skill rolls". Could I do this and how could it be balanced?

I was thinking it was some kind of culture based off of Samurai culture, where there's Bushido and all that, so they're honorable as fuck. This way, when they're being "honorable" and not killing(yet) their allies, then they would get some form of bonus.

Maybe something like

Honorable: This faction collects backstab bennies as usual, but can only fall victim to them, never taking advantage of them itself. As long as none of the other members of the alliance are also Honorable, the faction recieves +1 Skill against any opponent who is not Honorable.
