Daimyo: Kenchi the Mountain
Population: Mostly Kabutomushi
Territory: The Hosho maintain fortresses and towers throughout Senro
Ages ago the Hosho family was charged by the Shogun with guarding the borders between Senro and the Oni homeland Kage. They have not faltered in this task since. Skilled armorsmiths and warriors, they follow a strict code of honour and self sacrifice for the greater good. They care little for the politics and feuding of the other nations, only to do what needs to be done to protect the people of Senro. Beyond defending from Oni incursions, the Kabuto form the elite of the Shogun’s army and police force.
Though they admire the strength and will of the Kumadan, their first priority is to protect the people of Senro and the Kizoku Shogunate.

Daimyo: Goro the Avalanche
Population: Mostly Human and Ursine.
Territory: Large area but harsh, mountainous terrain with few resources and a hostile cold environment.
The Kuma are a tough and proud people, who eke a rough living out of the barren and harsh moon they call home. Most of their people live a simple life, living off the land, though many aspire to join the mighty Kumadan army. Powerful fighters, they have been a force to be reckoned with in many of the Senro wars. It’s no secret the Kuma feel that the Kizoku Shogunate and it’s allies are decadent and selfish leaders. The heavy taxes levied by the Shogun have left many of the Kuma people destitute. Over the years the Kuma have abandoned many of the Senro traditions and values and have adopted many foreign styles and technologies. Much of the Senro feel that the Kuma’s strange foreign clothes, weapons and practices are strange and barbaric. The Kumadan have a strong relationship with the Saguru who share their enthusiasm for change.
