The Free City
The Iron Palace (Tetsu-Jo)
Surrounded by stunning vistas of the Wildlands on all horizons and jagged mountains soaring overhead, the lofty citadel of Tetsu-Jo sits at the top of the hill in the center of Jiyutoshi, the seat of power for Lady Kyoko. From here, she and her band of elite and silent guards govern the city and run the administrative business of Jiyutoshi. Deep inside the imposing facade, heavily fortified walls and through a series of courtyards and corridors, Lady Kyoko’s private chambers are perched on the highest pinnacle of rock in the center of the complex. From here, the whole city is splayed out below but yet it feels very removed and private. It is here that the group discovered that she keeps a small colony of people who suffer from rare and mysterious diseases who, in exchange for her kindness, help with the economic side of the city’s workings.
