The Battle for Shiro no Yojin was the unsuccessful Crane attack to retake Shiro no Yojin from the Lion.

Battle Edit

In 1122 the Battle of the Forgotten Tide at Toshi Ranbo had raised the tensions between the clans, and the Crane army invaded the Plains of Battle. [1] The Crane assaulted the former Crane fortress of Shiro no Yojin which was defended by Akodo Isebo against the Crane commander Kakita Gensa. [2] Reinforcements under the command of Daidoji Uji arrived, and the Lion were outnumbered twenty to one odds. [3]

Legacy of the Forge Edit

These events had been fuelled by the Scorpion, as preparations of the incoming Scorpion Coup. [4] The traitor Kitsu Goden and the instigator Bayushi Sozui unleashed the Legacy of the Forge over the battlefield, possessing samurai of both sides for a much more slaughter. [5] With the Lion and the Crane becoming one fighting force trying to extinguish itself, the objective of claiming the castle became unimportant. [6]

Aftermath Edit

A group of samurai managed to perform a ritual that moved the Legacy to the realm they belonged, and the warriors at the battlefield were released of their hold. [7] The Crane seized the holding. [8]
