I think we'd be cautious, but not totally against it. Out of curiosity, would it be a Swordmaster of the House of Ginaz or an external initiate of the Ginaz School? The assumption was usually that Duncan Idaho was the former, but I think the prequels confirm the latter, that he was an Atreides soldier sent to train with the Ginaz. Anyway, I recommend trying your hand at a CS and posting it here for review. This way, we get used to figuring out the kind of CS we're looking to approve.

Also, would you be interested in controlling Wallach, or does that fall to me? I'm trying to be democratic about this lol. When you said opening crawl, do you mean the post or just the story introduction bit? How about the epigraph? And the title's probably got to change... MIB: Good looking out. Yeah, many Atreides joined smugglers or sort of faded into the background, so technically being part of what's left of the Atreides would just be part of a character's bio/allegiance rather than their faction.
