Royal Palace[]

The royal palace has 2 named corridors leading to the throne room. The left- and right dragon corridors.


Surrounded on all sides by mountain ranges, Kanyou could be said to be a Natural Fortress. But the reason Kanyou holds the title of the most impregnable city in all of China is because of the heavily fortified "National Gates" that block the only two paths leading to Kanyou; the eastern Kankoku Pass, and the southern Bu Pass.
