Re: Was it a cat I saw? Was it a rat I saw? New idea (feel free to tell me I'm crazy and this sucks, or any other comments/suggestions/etc.)

Well, to explain what I'm driving for here (in case it's getting lost in the technicalities), this is meant to introduce a "carrier" of commands, able to psuedo-extend the range of units, but at a cost: it's (as currently described) completely unable to control (with regards to where it goes), and it inevitably gets destroyed (and subsequently reset at a new random position). So there's a risk that you lose the command you imbue Rat with, but the reward is that he can "carry" commands around the board to later "deposit" somewhere else. Of course later, there might be ways to destroy him faster, or influence his travel, but I thought (I think correctly so) that this is complex enough to start with.

And to clarify what MHC pointed out, I should add a note to the proposal that no new cool down occurs (as the unit is/has already cooling down, so there's no sense in my mind to making it cool down again).
