The Festival of the Bloody Stone, most commonly known as Gisei Ningen, the "Mortal Sacrifice", was celebrated in the Meiyoko district of Otosan Uchi the fourteenth day of the Month of the Serpent. No war was allowed this day. [1]

History Edit

A ronin named Kinryoku protected the governorof the district which would be known as Meiyoko from an assassination attempt, dying on the assassin's blade. The stain of his blood was clearly visible on a stone, which rested next to a tall marble statue erected by the governor he saved. People visited the statue and left rice and flowers upon the stone.
