The Crane Game
New Prosperity Village
New Prosperity Village was founded only a year ago, at the start of 1164. It was created to take advantage of a small forest to provide the Crane with much-needed timber. The last year was taken up with resettling peasants, plowing fields, building houses and storehouses, and importing woodcutting gear.
It is a starkly utilitarian village with no way station or other comforts. The large barracks-like building for housing the teamsters who will haul the cut timber back to Mura Sabishii Toshi for transport could be used by traveling samurai if necessary. A better choice would be the small, rustic estate of Daidoji Tadasu, the man in charge of overseeing the logging operation.
