The Crane Game
The Crab embassy in Mura Sabishii Toshi is significantly smaller than the Mantis embassy, but it is still large enough to house the ambassador, his family, and staff. Unfortunately, for the duration of the Third Yasuki War, it has also had to house a number of other samurai who were no longer permitted to reside elsewhere in the city. Some of the embassy’s entertaining spaces have been converted to residential quarters for the temporary refugees and so the Crab have entertained their cousins in the Mantis clan even less frequently than usual.
Perhaps unexpectedly, the embassy is not an armed compound. A moderately-sized and carefully tended garden provides a welcome respite for those who need it and the Crab have created a small but homey tea-house on the embassy grounds, as well.
