Battle with the Rocs
Location: Mountains leading to the Burning Sands side
Date: 223 [1]
Major Forces: Ki-Rin Clan,
Generals: Shinjo
Battles of Rokugan

The Battle with the Rocs began while the Ki-Rin had left Rokugan to explore the rest of the world, in the Ki-Rin's Exodus. They encountered the Rocs, which attacked the Clan. Using a powerful spell, Iuchi caused a rockslide in the mountain pass that killed not only the Rocs but also a large number of Ki-Rin samurai and one of Shinjo's sons. With the pass back to Rokugan, the Ujik-hai lands, or the Burning Sands, now blocked by the landslide, the Ki-Rin split up to look for another way back home. [2]

The riders of the rocs most probably would be the Hawk Riders, who lived in these mountains. [3]

Imperial Histories 2 claims the battle happened in 242. Previous date is kept as it is spread over several pages of the Wiki, and it is unclear why it has been shifted in this latest RPG. Oni no Pikachu (talk) 17:59, September 22, 2014 (UTC)
