"Every day would be the death of you all, the end of everything the Empire has built... except that we are there."
-Hida Reiha


Secrets of the Crab investigates the children of Hida, the most indefatigable of Great Clans. See the customs, holdings, and way of life of the men and women that live only a stone's throw from the Festering Pit. Come stand upon the Kaiu Wall beside them... if you dare.

Within, you will find:

  • Information on the major and minor holdings of each Crab family, complete with points of interest, notable individuals, and suggestions on how to incorporate these elements into character backgrounds and adventures.
  • Mechanics for the secret weapons and techniques of the Crab armies: Kaiu siege weaponry, Kuni crystal weapons, Hida weaponry innovations, and new techniques for the Damned - doomed crack troops who rush to their death in combat to avoid the inevitable madness of the Taint!
  • Secrets revealed about the Yasuki conspiracy, the Crab's Nezumi alliance, and the mysterious Shakoki Dogu, ghost of the Twilight Mountains.
