The Era of the Mountain Prince
The Laughing Carp Sake House
This tastelessly named business is a small brewery and sake house, and goes unnoticed by most in the city during the normal course of the year. The house was once owned by the Scorpion, but was abandoned during the Scorpion coup decades ago. Previously called the Posioned Waters Sake House, it was purchased by a Yasuki Merchant Patron around 1180, it has undergone significant improvements. This Merchant Patron previously owned the Wise Student Ryokan, but was pushed out by the Crane. The house is frequented by ronin during the off-season, but makes enough money during the Topaz Championship to operate throughout the year. The sake made there is sold in small, black clay bottles and is famed for its potency.
