As both clans go to their corners, their respected Masters take a meditation moment to assess what just has happened. They meditate not just about their family, but New York as a whole. Through their meditation, visions of what’s yet to come appear and quickly both sides begin to plan for what will come next. As the City of New York sits as an empty waste land, Rat King looks upon his future kingdom with his army, ready to strike.

But they are not the only ones who want to keep New York City safe from unwanted visitors… The Foot Clan has now allied themselves with The Purple Dragons.
