I like that there are a number of assignements which clearly only matter to the doff you send on the mission (like "partake in an tournament" or "avenge you sibling"), yet you are the one gaining all the benefits - like the Dabo assignement supergaminggeek mentioned.
"Okay boys, take the day off and play a round of Dabo. For me *cough*" *hands them a back with a dollar-sign*
"First, men with discrimination will be viewed as schemers; second, men with deep far-sightedness will be seen as cowards; and third, men with rough behaviour will be mistaken for real warriors. These are great errors." -Takeda Shingen
