Guild Leader (Voice) Anthony Raven (Lord Sosen Riki)
Guild Advisor (Mind) Laura Barnard (Lady Ningyou Dansu)
Guild Champion (Body) Sam Mottram (Lord Naga Yusaki)

The Council of Jade is lead by the Clans Black Dragon, Crane and Snake, only the Clan Daimyo’s may ever have a seat on the council and each takes a respective position best served by them. Voice is the leader of the Council and leads with a level head and the Jade Empires best interests in mind, the Mind tempers the Voices decisions and advises Council, to ensure the best of all is noted. The last position is the Body, this person is considered the Champion of the Council and the fist of the Council to ensure laws are met and enforced.


Guild Ethos
Having tired of the almost lawless squabbling of the Clans, both Great and Low, the Dragon, Crane and Snake Clans came together with joint effort to form the Council of Jade, a coalition that is now a force for Law and Order in the Jade Empire. In a similar fashion to Labyrinthia’s Magistrates system, the Council acts as a place of laws for the Jade Empire and also a place for the clans meet and train together and share techniques for the betterment of all. The Council works for the betterment of life in the Jade Empire for all that live there and fights tirelessly to keep the lands safe for its inhabitants.

Guild Restrictions
Modern Laws: No member of the Council of Jade may be outlawed, if they become so they no longer gain any benefits until the crime is resolved at which time they may appeal to the Council for full membership again (only by the Guild Sire’s approval).

Unified Council: No member may attack or bring purposeful harm to another member, should this come to be they lose all benefits until the incident is resolved at which time they may appeal to the Council for full membership again (only by the Guild Sire’s approval).

Any disagreements will be civically dealt with by the Leaders of the Council; their decision is final in every case. The only exception in this rule will be cases of Seppuku and this may only be dealt out with permission of the Council Leader or the Emperor.
All cases of this restriction can be judged and dealt with by the Council Leaders in the same fashion as the outlaw restriction

Once Clan always Clan: Once you have joined the Council you may never leave unless expelled by a unified vote of the council (rebirthing releases you also)


Entry Requirements
Must be an Oriental race/class. Upon entry the character must decide upon his clan (Dragon/Crane/Snake), this must be written on card upon entry. No other clan may be included in the Council of Jade at this time.

The Crane Clan

Clan Daimyo: Lady Doji Ningyou Dansu


A clan member chooses which family they come from which is then written on their character card:

 The Doji are the voice of the Clan and the heart of its strength. Through their efforts the Crane lead society, help build the arts and civilization, and create political alliances with the other Clans.

 The Kakita are the creators of beautiful things- their artisans are the respected in the empire, nothing but perfection in their art will be enough. The Crane clan's most prominent art is called "The Sword" and focuses on the Iaijutsu Duelling technique, this school of art produces the warriors of the Crane clan.

 Asahina: Whilst not the artists of the Kakita, the Asahina find their calling in the creation of Nemurani, or Items, truly dedicated to their difficult task they are the supernatural power that drives the Crane to many victories in battle and the courts.

 The Dai-Doji: The Dai-Doji are the Crane's military power, keeping the Crane borders safe. Whilst unknown to many, the Dai-Doji is the true backbone of the Crane clan, fiercely loyal to the clan, almost to the point that they would sacrifice their lives or in some extreme cases, their honour to defend it.

The Jade Dragon Clan

Clan Daimyo - Lord Sosen Riki


A member must choose a Family upon joining:

• Tsuyo-sa – typically the Samurai, warriors and protectors of the clan and its lands (it is understood that many warrior types will be unable to purchase the Samurai tradition and carry out the Clan's duties);

• Haiyū – The Clan's finest actors and information gatherers tend to be trained at the Shosuro school by this family;

• Sosen – Callers of the Ancestors, tenders of the Clan herb gardens and wielders of the elemental forces (most power users).

Ethos/Background To ensure the security and safety of the Oriental Empire and its True Emperor at all costs and against all threats, foreign and domestic. Loyalty is prized more than Honour, Loyalty to Empire, Clan and Family in that order.

The Clan has only recently found its true lands and reclaimed them from the Mists and with it the memories of what they truly are.
The Jade Dragon come from a Valley in the heart of the Jade empire called the Valley of Jade, where gentle streams flow once more down from the steep valley sides onto the plans of flowing grass, within the steep hillsides there are some of the Finest Jade mines within all the lands and due to all the mining within the hills as the sun dawns across the valley the rivers sparkle green with the jade fragments hidden just under the surface. These mines are actually the Emperors and the honour falls to the clan to maintain and protect these for him.
Priests are encouraged to generate their own Miracle lists and so must normally be hermits.

The Snake Clan

Daimyo - Lord Naga Yusaki

The Snake clan are the last line of defence against supernatural threats against the Jade Empire and the Guardians of the Shadowlands.

The clan will do whatever is necessary to protect the Emperor and the lands from danger even if this is breaking the code of bushido, the only part that a member will never break is loyalty .



The clan is setup into 4 families

The Naga family
They are the politicians , artizans and courtiers of the family . They are currently the ruling family within the Snake clan since lord Naga Yusaki was passed on the clan from Lord Zu .

The Zu family
The Zu family are the soldiers and warriors of the clan , they make up the army and martial arm of the clan

The chu Family
The chu family are the wizards,priests and power users of the snake clan .


The Secret family - This is not public knowledge

The Joshu Family
The Joshu family are the Ninja family within the Snake clan but take a place in one of the other family depending on how they have trained .


The Rumor Network and underworld

As the Clan are the monitor the lands they have a vast spy network within other families and villages , so they allways are well informed of waht is happening within the lands and many times are able to blackmail their opponents in court solving many a issue without a sword being drawn .

The Shadowlands Portal
The Snake clan are the guardians of the entrance to the shadowlands , they make sure that nothing gets out and onto the mortal plane with assistance from the Snake clan within the shadowlands.

The Shadowlands - The Bridge to hell
The shadowlands is a pocket plane of the oriental hell which is a mirror or the mortal plane . There is a mirror Snake clan palace and many of the snake clan ancesters are Oni ( dark kami )



The Snake clan libraries
The Snake clan libraries are said to contain the true history of Jade Empire and contains many of the forbidden scrolls and items that the snake clan keep safe . Lord Naga is the guardian of these libraries and they are protected scrying into them and only few have been given access to them .


Recent history

The summerlands - A changing of daimyo

In recent years the emperor had requested that the snake clan go to his summer gardens and defost them as they were udner a great curse . This task was accomplished but in doing so awoke the powerful Mantis clan and many of the celestial children .

During this Trip lord Zu was summoned to the Celestial court and tried for the Shooting of the white dragon , as the dragon slaying arrows were in the snake clans care at the time this happened . Lord Zu then made a deal with the Celestial Emperor that his suppuku would put a end to this . It was on that day that Lord Zu pass the Clan to Naga Yusaki .


The impact of Renewal -

After the Renewal of the Celestial Emperor was complete and Jikou was stopped there stood a massive problem that a large army had formed in the shadowlands and it was about to break onto the mortal plane in revenge . As it was the Snake clans job Lord Naga took many of the Clan with him to the shadowlands to stop the threat .It was during this time that the mists came and the lands of the Mortal plane was lost to them.

There was a 10 year long war and the Jade being used to stop the taint eventually ran out many members were consumed by the taint and taking their place as ancestors of the Clan.

It was on the Bridge to Jikou Citadel itself when the war was at it turning point that Naga finailly had succome to the taint , but it was at this point that Goji his ancestral sword offered to stop the taint by Naga giving Goji his true name . This was done and Naga and Goji are now bound together and were able to push back the tide across the bridge and seal the army away .


In the Recent years when the mists cleared and the lands stabilized, those of the Clan that had been hiding and waiting across primus have returned and the Clan are once again at a good strength to guard the east.
