I would prefer one player per clan, myself. Much more work for A Sharp, of course. The following issues would need to be addressed:

Timing of consequences.
Timing of responses.

As I see it, a turn has the following structure:


      Consequence Demanding Response
      Consequence Permitting Response
      Consequence not Permitting Response

Likewise, there are Events, which can inturrupt an Action. They also fall into the three categories above, although most are either "Demand" or "not Permitting".

Adding multiple players means that one player's Action could become another's Event.

This can prove tricky.
