I'm into it! We spent a lot of time building ties at Winter Court, I'd love to see something more come of that.

I like the suggestion of an alliance to preserve culture - one of the agreements we made at Winter Court was for the Kakita Artisan Academy to work to refine and promote Unicorn art styles, so that seems particularly fitting.

Regarding specific things we could offer - if the Unicorn want to reach out to Spider who oppose Kanpeki, I think Crane support could be a big help with that. We know everybody, after all. We should be able to quietly put them in touch with a lot of potential sympathisers, and help provide them with cover for further contact.

Yeah I'm totally down with opposing Kanpeki since it looks like he's clearly going to be the greater evil.

To preserve culture, and -- one hopes, or at least I do *g* -- to create new cultural expressions. After Onyx Edition, it may well be needed!

The Winter Court connection sounds like an ideal jumping-off point; was there something between Crane and Unicorn involving meishodo also, or am I imagining things?

A good point, this one.

There was! :D There wasn't a lot of IC talk about it - it was a last-minute addition to our treaties after the Unicorn went the whole of WC without using that particular resource - but there will now be six Crane shugenja studying at the College of Meishodo.

There was also a question asked in the previous thread of who our best-looking eligible groom for Naleesh would be. If I may offer a not-very-serious suggestion - Doji Shunya? ;) He does come with Min-Hee's seal of approval...

Oh, excellent! I am all for sharing knowledge; but that is probably a little obvious at this point *g*

We can certainly add Shunya if you like; I was the one who mentioned Ujirou, I am all for not always serious suggestions ;) Besides, it may actually work!

There are a few responses on the Unicorn forum; one is positive (should the Unicorn choose option two) but notes that we ourselves have no idea what our official initial paths are yet (fair), the other declines considering it because they believe the Unicorn need to put the common folk first. That last is a fair point also, except that said point is something that a good deal of my suggestion hinges on.

Aah well, negotiations!

Edit: A few more folks joining in now; anyone else from here care to offer their own thoughts on the Unicorn forum also?

I'll jump over there when I have some time. Even if they choose not to ally with anyone, this is a good exercise for us on this forum to practice getting ourselves organized for a clan initiative.

Indeed.

It looks like one of the forum regulars is going to move the proposal to its own thread, rather than having it continue in the Unicorn Paths thread; when I spot the new one, I shall link it here.
