The Hidari Wars
Known also as the Shadow Palace this city isn’t nearly as dark as its residents would like outsiders to believe. On the outside people believe that it is a place where Oni come, and consort with the resident, but the true story couldn’t be more different. The actual township is actually a fairly friendly community with fairly little crime, and poverty. A lot of the residents benefit from welcoming the ninja since then the ninja tend to police the area, and keep petty thieves out, and are as honorable as a ninja can be to them.
This place is home of the Yami clan whom have made it their capitol. Currently the Yami clan has built up their navy on Lake Mizukami to combat the Hidari clan who also have a navy upon the lake. Fortunately the Yami have been more aggressive with their tactics, and make landing parties comprised of some of the greatest ninja assassins of the land that land on the other side of the lake, and slay the leaders of the Hidari clan. With that being said Manamurakata is bordered by the lake, and gains much wealth from fishing.
Known for being the Shadow Palace on the outside, this city is more like a Market Palace on the inside. While many believe Oni live here the denizens of the town often state that it is more of a place of light than shadow.
