Dawn Tower

Dawn Tower (A7)

The Dawn Tower (A7) once guarded Golden Sun Bay, manned by the Seppun and Tortoise. [1] The largest Shrine of Agasha Kasuga was on the first floor of the tower. [2]

Tortoise Training Grounds Edit

The tower rested on the tip of the northern peninsula, the Peninsula of Dawn, that enclosed the bay. It was another of the Tortoise's unofficial bases of operation, despite it was technically an Imperial outpost manned by the Seppun Miharu. The flat lands of the surrounding area were the training grounds for the Tortoise Bushi, and the place for the Yoake Fusheru Dojo. [2]

Fall of Otosan Uchi Edit

After the Fall of Otosan Uchi in 1159 the tower stood in ruins, destroyed by a monstrosity from the sea during Daigotsu's attack on Otosan Uchi. [3] When they had seen the Shadowlands ships approach, the defenders were shocked to find that their horses had been poisoned and their own ships sabotaged. The Seppun of the tower committed seppuku almost to a man. [2]
