    Samurai, Shugenja, and Blood

    Except all humans are spawned from the essence of Amatseru and Onnotangu directly, the tears and the blood, so they have divine heritage without the Kami.

    You challenge the shugenja and his yojimbo has to step forward and answer.

    Would be hilarious for the weakened Crane to reconcile with the Crab for an alliance... and then later they find the Crab working with the Mantis is one of the reasons why they were weakened in the first place, but now the Crane and Crab have had a few successes under their belt and so the alliance seems to be working... So awkward...

    Samurai, Shugenja, and Blood

    In the novella the spirits shy away from blood. Spilling blood in a shrine desecrates it. Spirits don't like shugenja that smell of blood but kansen will want to be your friends.

    RPG Lore - Kachiko & Hotaru

    From what I read they grew, then Moon was convinced by the Nothing that his children were conspiring against him. Him acting all weird set the children to conspiring, and Fu Leng ratted them out. This confirmed the Moon's suspicions and so he started eating them all. "Onnotangu devoured all of his children. The first to be eaten was Ryoshun then Bayushi and Akodo fell. Hida, Doji, and Shiba were likewise found and consumed. Fu Leng's was hiding in a clever refuge, but Togashi led Shinjo near it and exposed them all to his father. Lord Moon consumed them all. [8] With each child he ate his wife Amaterasu fed him a cup of poisoned sake. When he came to eating the tenth child, Hantei, he mistakenly ate a stone instead. Hantei was hidden away by Amaterasu who taught him about honor, the way of the warrior and the noble man Onnotangu had once been. "

    *not sure if you want dark secrets out to fight the Shadowlands or if someone is hoping for some scrolls to get opened*
  7. You can resolve quicker with what is called a Clash in the book, used when two military leaders call each other out for example.

    Meanwhile the Agasha are over here studying chemistry and discovering that energy and matter are all interchangeable enough that they can transmute any element into another, but no one wants to listen to them.

    RPG Lore - Kachiko & Hotaru

    When Hotaru is trying to figure out who killed her father, she does consider Kachiko doing it as an unbidden 'favor' for her a possibility. Which means she likely had done something significant for Hotaru in the past for Kachiko's devotion to be considered possibly that strong.

    Quote from the RPG

    "Do not use my name too freely, beloved, on every tea-matron and Miwaku Kabe guard. But if our connection should advantage you in court, it pleases me to think that I may open doors for you." -A letter to Iuchi Shahai, signed only with a Chrysanthemum seal

    A Simple Test

    You seem to know an awful lot about Scorpion secrets for someone sporting a Crab mon...
  13. You vastly overestimate the fatality rate of medieval combat. Especially for properly armed, armored, and trained combatants like Ronin.
  14. Well, he IS the equivalent of twenty men, right?
