Battles of Rokugan

The Battle of the Chrysanthemum Petals was fought by the Dark Moto against a combined Unicorn and Crab army.

Battle Edit

Two years after the Moto rode into the Shadowlands led by Moto Tsume, the fallen Daimyo returned commanding a vast Dark Moto army out of the Shadowlands and into the Unicorn's territory. They were confronted near the shores of the Chrysanthemum Petal Lake by Unicorn, various ashigaru, [1] and Crab forces, who managed to fight off their assault. [2]

Aftermath Edit

The remaining Moto were so stained by the corruption of their former daimyo that the White Guard was formed. The White Guard would know no rest until the Dark Moto had been slain for good. [2]
