In four directions away from the Forbidden City stand the four figurative pillars of the martial arts society. Each of them is centuries old and has a history so full of heroes and villains and marvels that each of them could fill a small library with their stories.
Small Forest Sect (North-East)
Dragon Well Sect (South-East)
Iron Shadow Fortress (South-West)
Lofty Mountain Society (North-West)
These factions are not quite as ancient and illustrious as the Pillars but they nevertheless wield an enormous amount of power and influence.
