Owari Province: the Sengoku Jidai arrives

After the Onin War, the control of the Ashikaga Shogunate was torn apart. The result was endless civil war in the form of small localized conflicts between military strongmen. It was ironic then that the Shogun, the Generalissimo of the army who ruled in the Emperor's name and subjected the Emperor to the same treatment, had become impotent and completely at the mercy of the military men.
