Crab Raiders are a faction of Scorchlanders who worship Crabs. They will host a "Crab Tournament" at a player outpost in order to determine if you are worthy enough to own crabs as well.

Note: You can buy a crab at a Crab shop without being allied to them or doing a tournament. You cannot however buy their Crab Armour without being allied.
