Battles of Rokugan

The Battle of Kotanu Plains was a defeat of the Lion Clan through treachery of one of his own kin.

Preambles Edit

Matsu Ino had lived behind his brother's shadow and his bitternes grew big enough to plot against him, Matsu Chonoku. Ino made a bargain with a Crane daimyo, Kakita Hojin, who had to harass the Lion border to lure Chonoku in the battlefield. [1]

Battle Edit

Ino was sent by his brother to explore the Kotanu Plains, and he returned with an erroneous information. It led general and his forces to complete defeat in the battlefield. After the death of Chonoku the family lands passed to Ino. The conquered Lion lands returned to him after he defeated Hojin in a non lethal duel, which was a part of the bargain. [2]
