Yojin province tends to be filled with small disputes with the Crane across the border, but nothing that seems likely to evolve into full warfare. Most of these disputes take place regarding the ownership and use of the forest that crosses the clan borders. A precious source of lumber, especially for the Lion, both sides are determined to harvest it carefully but sufficiently for their needs. The uneasy “peace” exists because of the Otomo family’s actions over the last generation, until finally the clans were ordered to “share” the forest and the borders were set. Neither wishes to have the war start here, lest they offend the Imperials and lose their support.
