Legend of the Five Rings - Cobalt and Steel
Mamoru Kyotei Toshi (Honored Treaty City)
Mamoru Kyotei Toshi, also known as Honored Treaty City, was located in the Agasha provinces. It became the final repository for a peace treaty that ended a bitter struggle between the Lion and Phoenix. The war had broken out in the fifth century, and raged for many years until it was ended when both parties sued for peace.
Many hundred years later, in the twelfth century, the alliance between the Lion and Phoenix against the Dragon, if only briefly, was negotiated here. It was also the location for the signing of the subsequent peace treaty between the Dragon and the Phoenix.
Kankei Seiden was the formal estates of the Nasu vassal family of the Shiba located in this city. The Shiba sanctioned a formal dojo of their bushi school within the estates.
The nearby Honored Treaty Plains was the site of the first victory for the Phoenix-Lion alliance during the Dragon-Phoenix War. It was achieved by Matsu Nimuro.
In 1168 the Phoenix Clan Champion Shiba Mirabu and the Isawa’s Last Wish were destroyed by the mighty Shugenja Isawa Sezaru in a temple’s city.
