Out of the Mountain's Shadow

A PbP game of Weapons of the Gods

Sword Looks Up, East Liang[edit]

Sword Looks Up is a small city nessled in the forests at the foot of the mountains in East Liang. Those wilds are the home of the Green Mountain clan; a minor clan overshadowed by its nearby Bei and Dong neighbors. The merchants, scholars and nobles of Sword Looks Up are striving to counteract this somewhat uncooth reputation, and make the city more cosmopolitan. The newly appointed Chief Magistrate -- Lord Ru Di, somewhat sarcastically known on the streets as The Cultured King -- in particular is interested in seeing the city thrive and grow during his tenture there.

To that end, he is using the excuse of a visit from the Abbot of the Winter's Retreat monestary on Heng South, to sponsor a tournament.
