Grorg This is one of the best cards in the game and xrab reason I consider the Crab clan to be one of the three best clans at the moment. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. This is how I interpreted the situation as well, but my opponent disagreed. Crab also like conflict characters if they are running a lot of holdings to help them keep characters and holdings in play every turn. Just keep straightening him, reprieving him, and Vanguard Warrioring him and throw a Watch Commander on him as soon as you get it.

The Crane represent everything the Crab despise - weak, elusive and relying on commerce and politics to offset their cowardice. They believe the Crane to have little to no military might, and yet they own more land than any other clan. They did not defend themselves, rather relying upon the words of the Emperor or might of allies. Had it not been for the necessary war against the Shadowlands the Crab would most likely have launched an all out attack on the Crane centuries ago.
The Crane-Crab War was probably the largest encounter between the two clans, resulting in the breaking of the Yasuki family from the Crane. To remedy these issues to an extent the Crab had a small number of Hida and Hiruma trained as courtiers specifically for negotiations with the Crane. The only exception to the hatred of the Crane was the Daidoji family , for whom the Hida family in general regard quite highly. They clans fought the Second Yasuki War which was later brought to a peaceful resolution when Emerald Champion Yasuki Hachi swore fealty to both the Crab and Crane, solving the disagreement.
The Crab received information indicating that Hachi was not in fact of the Yasuki line, and thus claimed that the family would therefore be exclusively Crab. The other families within the Dragon are more respected by the Crab, the Mirumoto family for their military skills and the Kitsuki magistrates for their honorable dealings with the rest of the Empire.
When the Agasha were still a part of the Dragon they had a interesting relationship with the Kuni family despite the famous Agasha aloofness. The Kuni would frequently send oni ichor or goblin entrails to the Agasha for identification and inspection, cementing a relationship based upon mutual interests. The only problem the Crab really have with the Lion was one of philosophy. The Lion boast of honor in defending the Emperor , but without achievements this is merely words.
The two clans have never quarreled over land due to the geographic distance between them, and their other interests are so different they have never had cause to disagree. The Phoenix often speak their minds, and while the Crab ignore their cries for peace they still respect the openness of the Phoenix. The power of the magic the Phoenix possess is never dismissed and the Kuni never hesitate to go to the Isawa when they need aid. Scorpions are deceptive and tricky like the Crane, but unlike the Crane, they show a wary respect to the Crab.
Having clashed before, the Scorpion know it is not wise to anger the Crab. The Crab have tried to have as little to do with the Scorpion as possible, although this sometimes played into the ploys of the Scorpion.
The conflict begun when Bayushi Paneki began sending his ninja to assassinate Hida Kisada. In exchage for thier help the Scorpion gave the Crab access to their spy network. They have strengthened the ties between them through several political marriages and have found that they share a willingness to make sacrifices to protect the Empire and a pragmatic stance toward honor. They are much like the Crab in that their strange customs have made them outsiders in Rokugan and their martial prowess mark them as true warriors.
Since the return of the Unicorn , the two had more or less been allies, and a particularly strong bond was forged between the Shinjo family and the Hiruma. The Crab also get along well with them on a personal basis, as the Mantis are often just as willing to speak their minds as the Crab and are flexible enough to be comfortable in virtually any situation. Lastly, the Mantis have always been ready to lend their aid to the Crab when called upon. Minor Clans Edit The Crab view most minor clans with a great degree of favor, respecting them for their relative strength compared to their size.
The Crab shared borders with the both the Hare and Sparrow Clans , providing a sort of buffer between them and the Scorpion Clan. The following are all clans and families with Crab ties:.
