This page is constantly expanding its borders by forcibly occupying "unaligned" lands.
In other words, it is under construction. Did you really expect anything else?

Team Mantis Motto:
Shakin' up the status quo: guess who just became a Great Clan?
How to use: When listening, mentally replace all instances of "Rocket" with "Mantis." For extra laughs, do your best to imagine your favorite Yoritomo's Alliance Personalities anime style. And remember: Kitsune Meowth eats oreos.
