"The Mantis are powerful and unpredictable. Some say that they endeavor to be like the sea. I would instead say that the sea wishses to be like the Mantis." - Rezan, ronin poetSecrets of the Mantis explores the youngest Great Clan from within, illustrating their customs, holdings, and way of life. But beware: the lands of the Mantis are quite hazardous, and he who digs too deeply may not return from the isles. Within, you will find:

  • Insight into the culture of the Mantis Clan and the families that comprise it.
  • Background on the allies of the Mantis - the Badger and Tortoise Clans.
  • Mechanics for lesser-known groups within the clan, including the Tsuruchi Kenkyaku and the secret spells of the Moshi family.
  • An examination of Still Water Cover, the hidden lair of nefarious Kolat Master Moshi Shanegon.
  • The darkest secrets of the Mantis Clan - the forgotten shames that they hide from outsiders... and themselves.
