Shadow War is a sourcebook for Kindred of the East that details the ways Kuei-jin wage war against each other, as well as the Great Leap Outward and Bamboo Princes.


From the White Wolf catalog:

At Twilight the Knives Still Shine
In Kowloon, the Bamboo Princes stir insurrection against the bloodless, ancient mandarins of the Quincunx. In Korea, two elders of the Green Courts swear ritual enmity in a midnight war, as each has been told that the other is akuma. In California, freed from the dictates of civilized warfare, the Kuei-jin seek to wash away the hapless Kuei-jin with sudden savagery. Everywhere, the Kuei-jin are at war.
At Midnight, They Are Red with Blood
Shadow War is a guide to warfare, both formal and otherwise, among the Kuei-jin. From the honorable strife of the twilight war to the relentless savagery of midnight was against the Yama King's servants, from the battles outside the Middle Kingdom to the means the youngest Wan Kuei use in their struggles against their elders, everything a Kuei-jin needs to know about taking the field of battle is here.
