Wasp In Web Stings Spider
<<Lion Grooms Under Two Circling Phoenix<<
In these histories is also recorded a surprising event from that region of the empire. A foreign ship, its crew all dead, was found beached on the stretch of coast controlled by the Wasp Clan. It was unlike anything seen inside or outside of the empire, and was declared by Wasp shipwrights to be of design highly superior to traditional junks. Wasp, seeking favor with their master Spider, gifted it to the Spider’s ruling family. Upon inspecting the wreck for himself, the Spider Clan daimyo ordered the ship burned to the last splinter, and the crew given appropriate death rights of the empire. Wasp bowed to the great wisdom of the Spider daimyo for holding true to the Imperial Edicts. However, when they saw the death rites performed by Spider shugenja, they recognized the clear influence of the oni blood and culture in the Spider, and they knew great fear. Wasp leaders conferred among themselves and made a pact to reveal the Spider’s taint to the Great Clans.
