"We are the children of the Lady Doji, first in all things. Excellence is our past, our present, our future. Others hate and fear us only because they can never achieve what we have been given"
-Doji Kurohito, Crane Clan Champion


Secrets of the Crane explores the paragons of honor and civility, the Crane Clan. Where others see weakness, however, the Crane have strength held in reserve to crush those who dare oppose them.

Within, you will find:

  • An examination of the unique traditions, philosophies, and holdings of each of the Crane families: the Asahina, Daidoji, Doji, Kakita, and Yasuki.
  • Mechanics for many groups within the clan, such as the Empress' Guard and the Daidoji Trading Council, as well as a revised version of the renowned Kakita Artisan Academy.
  • An extensive history of the Crane Clan, as well as a master list of all their techniques and new abilities for their courtiers.
  • Shiro Giji, stronghold of the Daidoji Harriers. Hidden and forgotten. The dark recesses of Shiro Giji provide the dreaded Harriers with a source of strength from which to strike out at the Crane Clan's enemies.
  • The darkest secrets of the Crane - the hidden, forgotten shame that they hide from all outsiders... and themselves.
