Shiro Mirumoto

Although not traditionally the home of the Dragon Clan
Champion, Shiro Mirumoto is very much the place from
which the clan has been governed over most of its history.
The Togashi Champions have usually delegated much of their
authority, and with it responsibility, to the Mirumoto lords,
and as such it has become second nature for most functions
of clan government – such as succession debates, inter-clan
relations, and the collection of taxes – to center around Shiro
Mirumoto.

Accordingly, Shiro Mirumoto is a sort of jack-of-all-trades
when it comes to the purposes normally fulfi lled by a familial
estate. It is, fi rst and foremost, a military fortress, its intended
purpose at the time of its construction. In fact, it is the largest
and most heavily defended fortress in all the Dragon lands. It
is also one of the largest centers of learning, for just nearby
is Iron Mountain Dojo, the greatest of all Mirumoto teaching
institutions.

Although the Kitsuki traditionally maintain the majority
of the clan’s guests at Last Step Castle, the Mirumoto are
known to host smaller numbers of guests each season as well.
Traditionally, the military nature of Shiro Mirumoto means
that only rigidly military individuals are invited to stay; most
courtiers and artisans fi nd the place far too stern to enjoy a
season there, and the Dragon would certainly not wish to offend
their guests.
