Gong of the Righteous Emperor 
Gong of the Righteous Emperor
Created by: Unknown
First used by: Toturi III
Currently in the possession of: Unknown

The Gong of the Righteous Emperor was presented to Toturi III by Hida Kisada after the fall of Iuchiban in 1166. The Gong's origins were unknown, but two possible origins involve Kisada creating it with his powers as a Fortune, or Kisada bringing it back with him from Yomi. [1]

Appearance Edit

Physically, the Gong of the Righteous Emperor was made of gold and lacquered wood, emblazoned with the Imperial mon and complete with a wooden striker. It was supernaturally heavy and required a cart and four strong men for travel. [1]

Abilities Edit

The Gong harnessed the bloodlust of the army that carried it. It was used to keep the cadence of a marching army, crashing with metallic thunder in time with the army's footsteps. [1]
