Clan Kitsune is a clan expansion for Ninja All-Stars which contains enough miniatures to build a complete Kitsune-themed team. Clan boxes feature dynamic and unique sculpts for players’ favorite teams. They also introduce two powerful new troop types to players’ existing collections: large-sized Oni and a fearsome clan Hero.
Clan Kitsune are the mercurial mystics and and expert herbalists of the hallowed spirit trees of Kagejima. With access to an abundance of herbs and fungi found nowhere else in the world, they create and trade their remedies and poisons for the wares of other clans. Yet, in their cunning, they are keen to keep the most potent and arcane of their creations for themselves. Due to their whimsical and often wayward nature, many of the more stoic clans view the Kitsune as unreliable rogues, but their friends simply see them as wise tricksters.

As the spine of the mountains gives way to the eastern lands, dark and mysterious forests cover the great northwest. Wet, damp, and mossy, the lush ferns and spongy ground are seldom travelled except in times of the greatest need. There are many superstitions about the secretive denizens of this verdant expanse. Mythical creatures are said to walk freely here, the kami, fickle and quick to anger, range far and wide, sometimes luring unwary travelers into the forests depths, to what ends, no one knows. Under the shadowy and damp canopy many magical and natural herbs are grown and traded by the few people who live in small villages along the safe paths through the woodland realm. These ingredients make the most powerful of healing agents and the most deadly of poisons. These are the lands of the Kitsune clan.
For many on Kagejima, the difference between the Kitsune and the kami inhabitants of the dark forest is nonexistent. For their part, the Kitsune are a relatively open and happy people glad to share friendship with any worthy of their esteem. However, they do possess a mercurial and fickle nature much like their namesake. Normally this is expressed through silly jokes and tricks, but their playful behavior can can quickly turn dark depending on the mood of the Kitsune. Many of the more stoic clans view the Kitsune as unreliable rogues, while their friends see them as wise tricksters.
The Kitsune are powerful mystics and expert herbalists with access to herbs and fungus found nowhere else in the world. They trade their remedies and poisons for the other clans’ wares while keeping the most potent and arcane poultices for themselves.
Come closer. You remind me of someone I knew—long ago.
For as long as people have walked the mist-haunted forests of northern Kagejima, Tamano no Mae has watched them. For all the centuries that the Kitsune clan has carved a bewitched existence from its shrouded forests, Tamano no Mae has brewed her potions and worked her spells.
There’s more to life than these haunted trees, and I’m going to find it! You’ll see!
While most Kitsune distrusts outsiders and prefer to stay in their loamy, fern-shrouded forests, Uzumaki is often the first to greet travelers and offer them warding runes and medicines in exchange for stories of the world beyond.
Aspiring leaders and skilled fighters within the clan are called upon to lead their own team of ninja at the Moonlight Tournament as Chunin. This is an incredible honor, and the trials to come will not only test a Chunin’s leadership and skills, but their spirit as well.
Kaiken are the backbone of the clans. To be a Kaiken is not to be relegated to a basic or low role. Kaiken are masters of the art of stealth, the sword, the shuriken. As their experience grows they learn to tap the elemental magic of Kagejima, unlocking potent abilities to rival even the great Heroes.
Yajiri specialize in attacking from afar. Their black shafted arrows renowned for striking with deadly accuracy. While the bow is utilized throughout all the clans, many have developed their own unique forms of ranged warfare. No matter the form it takes, a yajiri’s value to their clan cannot be underestimated.
Kunoichi are specialized female fighters and scouts for the clans, and put particular emphasis on speed and agility. Kunoichi focus on key mission objectives such as scouting targets and carrying vital missives. When combat is unavoidable, they eliminate targets with a hail of deadly shuriken or kunai.
All clans possess the mystics known as Madoushi. In some clans they are revered as sages, alchemists and healers. Other clans regard them as witches and tolerate them with barely concealed mistrust and fear. Whether they are revered or reviled, all Madoushi are able to harness the powers native to the lands of their clan.
Oni and man first met as enemies, but soon developed a grudging respect, the oni for their size and strength, and men for their technology and tenacity. Many oni, however fickle, will join a team to honor agreements, to demonstrate their strength, or just for the fun of it.
