The Pagoda of Four Pleasures

The pagoda was given its name in line with the four floors that each harbour one of the 'pleasures' granted under the vigilant eye of the Kurosawa Conglomerate. A wide set of stairways clings to the walls as it spirals within the pagoda to reach every floor in turn. At every floor, bouncers are positioned to supervise who comes in and who leaves, stopping those who are not welcome if need be. The first floor is open to everyone above 16 years, while the second floor and higher are reserved for people older than 18 - exceptions are made for special invitees, of course.


  • First floor: alcohol.
    The first floor is the go-to floor for an evening well spent. Easily accessible and open to everyone above 16 years, this luxurious bar provides a rich selection of beers, cocktails and other spirits in a controlled environment. While not reserved to high class, the wine red couches, brilliant black tables, the dimly lit environment consorted by a soft jazz background music tends to repel 'lesser' individuals in favour of the more artistically inclined spirits and business men of good standing.

  • Second floor: gambling.
    The second floor is a rather quiet spot divided in small game rooms with the help of easily moved panelling. The atmosphere is similar to the first floor, inspiring those with coin to spare to step inside. The games are considered 'fair', as far as such a thing is possible in a yakuza run house. Gambling stakes are regulated and generally abide by the law, though people with the proper connections may find themselves in company who don't mind raising the stakes deep into the 'less appropriate' values. Lastly, friends of the house (mostly yakuza members or long-standing connections) may find an off-the-books loanshark among the Kurosawa willing to fund their needs here.

  • Third floor: courtesans.
    This floor is divided into large, private rooms of varying sorts. Living rooms, bed rooms, music rooms, pleasure rooms. All of them preserved with utmost care and furnished to provide an agreeable atmosphere for the patron and their courtesan. Not keen on the 'street flowers' generally frequented by the lower class, the courtesans of the Kurosawa Conglomerate were chosen for their eloquence, artistic finesse and skill in enamouring and pleasuring their company in the most refined ways. The courtesans are well dressed and well cared for, and if needed protected against their patrons if the last named are not able to maintain proper 'gentleman' agreement. Unlike what is often believed, the courtesans are more than just company for sexual pleasure, boasting skills or reputation as conversationalists, masseurs, tattooists, musicians and more. But to compensate for this exquisite company, the price is considerably higher but the House has yet to be faced with displeasure.

  • Fourth floor: the dream clouds.
    The fourth floor is shrouded in the many clouds created by those savouring the sweet taste of exclusive tobacco and opium brands. Aside from the hired geisha's soft background music, there is barely any sound to be heard as the patrons hear enjoy a welcome moment of tranquillity. The Kurosawa pride themselves in preserving the peace here, offering only the best quality and experiences for the most honoured of guests.

Way of the Yakuza


D-RANKS

Disaster Relief:

Mission name: Way of the Yakuza: Disaster Relief
Mission rank: D-rank | Repeatable
Objective: Help out the populace
Location: Hi no Kuni | Tanzaku Town
Mission Description: A disaster befell Tanzaku Town. Help out in the reconstruction of its destroyed buildings and provide the victims with much needed food and protection.
Mission Details: 500 wc, 75 ryo
A Yakuza's honour does not allow others to suffer. When the city has been struck hard, they are often the first ones to support its reconstruction. Your duty is now to deliver money or resources for the reconstruction of its buildings. You could also assist the reconstruction of affected buildings by joining in its manual labor. Another option is to give food, clothes and shelter to the families and/or merchants who were affected, making sure their suffering is eased.
Loanshark:

Mission name: Way of the Yakuza: Loanshark
Mission rank: D-rank | Repeatable
Objective: Help out a merchant with a personal investment.
Location: Hi no Kuni | Tanzaku Town
Mission Description: A local merchant is having a hard time and seeks some funding with the yakuza. Strike a deal and help him get on top of his game again.
Mission Details: 500 wc, 75 ryo
Yakuza are people of business and politics. When one business man meets with another, it is their goal to make sure both parties benefit. The yakuza often have the means, the others generally the dreams. Let's see a contract forged.


C-RANKS

Keeping it clean:

Mission name: Way of the Yakuza: Keeping it clean
Mission rank: C-rank | Repeatable
Objective: Throw out a trouble maker
Location: Hi no Kuni | Tanzaku Town
Mission Description: The Yakuza House may be a place of sin, but it stands on etiquette and proper behaviour. Some people seem to have misunderstood that, so it is time to get those trouble makers kicked out.
Mission Details: 1500 wc, 300 ryo
A patron had one drink too many and started to cause a problem inside. Harassing people, being unnecessarily loud, the other patrons have started to complain. However, said drunk is no push over what with D-2 stats across the board, so might need some professionals to get them subdued and ousted.
The street, c'est moi:

Mission name: Way of the Yakuza: The street, c'est moi.
Mission rank: C-rank | Repeatable
Objective: Apprehend the pick-pocket
Location: Hi no Kuni | Tanzaku Town
Mission Description: Despite their reputation as criminals, the Yakuza is not without its merit in a society. The yakuza perform their crimes 'in public', their honour denying back-stabbing activities such as thievery. Today is the day where this gets proven once more. Tourists have been harassed by pick-pockets lately, but the culprit(s) have escaped under the cover of the crowd.
Mission Details: 1500 wc, 300 ryo
One of thieves you're trying to apprehend is rather nimble and quick on his feet. His stats are D-0 across the board, with dexterity and speed being D-2. Use your superior perception to spot him, chase him and 'teach him a lesson' he won't forget quickly.
A bargain made is a bargain kept:

Mission name: Way of the Yakuza: A bargain made is a bargain kept.
Mission rank: C-rank | Repeatable, Crime
Objective: Collect 'protection money'
Location: Hi no Kuni | Tanzaku Town
Mission Description: Yakuza generally conclude their business in honourable ways, but once in a while someone tries to weasel out of the agreement. Today, there is a shop that does not seem to understand how things go in Tanzaku Town. Their hired guard chased away the goons before, so now we're sending in the stronger pawns to collect the money that they owe us.
Mission Details: 1500 wc, 450 ryo
The hired force are three D-rank guards, focusing on physical combat. Their strength and constitution is at D-1, the rest set to D-0. They may be wielding C-rank weapons, if the writer wants them armed.
Contraband:

Mission name: Way of the Yakuza: Contraband
Mission rank: C-rank | Repeatable, Crime
Objective: Protect the merchandise
Location: Hi no Kuni | Tanzaku Town
Mission Description: It's always a pleasure doing business, but sometimes that business needs to be... made clear. Rival gangs, law enforcers, it matters not who. What matters is that they need to stay out of our business.
Mission Details: 1500 wc, 450 ryo
A group of five opponents (gangs or law enforcers) caught wind of our illicit activity and are now trying to get their 'fair share' - in whole or in part. The opposition is armed with C-rank weapons, and D-rank stats across the board. Their strategy is to have the yakuza occupied while one of them tries to escape with the cart and goods.

Performing for Prosperity

Results. That is what the Conglomerate is about. A deal is only as worth as the money it brings in. A member of the family is only as valuable as the performance they deliver. In a world of crime and business, performance is measured in their ability to keep the law-enforcing troops out of their business while keeping money inside of it - though in some occasions the two are interchangeable. Here, Nariko's road towards prosperity within the family will be kept under close scrutiny.

Keeping Tabs

The Kurosawa Conglomerate is not without its connections, nor without its enemies. Aside from partaking in a love-hate relationship with the law itself, opposing yakuza families wage an eternal war to bring down the Conglomerate to its knees. And naturally there are various factions which seek to grow alongside the honourable yakuza as they plausibly deny the underhanded tactics and affairs in favour of riches and influence. But all these relations in general are a cluster of networks within networks. As for Nariko, her personal network is not as extensive just yet.


Perosnal NPCs:
- Mr. Belvedere, her personal manservant.
- Akane, her personal handmaid.
- Azunai, her personal guard.


Contacts:
- Nagisa, Genin of Kaze no Kuni.


Business Partners:
- None


Rivals:
- None
