Kyuden Suzume

Kyuden Suzume

Kyuden Suzume (A25) was stark and functional, providing a fortified position where the Sparrow Clan and their heimin can defend themselves in time of war. [1] [2]

Appearance Edit

Suzume Shiro was built out of the side of a hill top, restructured from an abandoned iron mine. [3] It was a one-story stone house without any sort of external ornamentation or decoration of any kind. Some samurai of the Great Clans who passed by, mistakenly believed it was a stable or a large storage house, [4] as once the famous Daidoji Uji. [5] In time, Kyuden Suzume grew, becoming a two one-story buildings with a shrine between them, dedicated to the clan's founder, with a smaller shrine for Lady Doji. Another small shrine venerated the Sun. [6] It was the only estate in the Minor Clans which could claim was large enough to host an Emperor's Winter Court. An array of tunnels was built beneath it, extending in every direction for hundreds of yards. [7] There might be found the Suzume family library. [6]

Dojo Edit

The interior of the main building had a large courtroom that doubled as a dojo, until the construction of a dedicated external one, [6] called the Kyuden Suzume Dojo. [8]
