The booze war began when the nobility outlawed booze in an attempt to increase productivity. Not very many peasants were happy with this law, and the gangs started illegally giving booze to them. The nobility discovered this and attacked the gangs, trying to secure the alcohol. A war broke out, as the gangs tried to establish control. The gangs utilized guerrilla tactics, and broke the code of war, by targeting civilians. This scared a lot of people, and though the nobility tried to shut them down, was unsuccessful. So they stopped fighting the gangs, but kept the law in place. The gangs continued their business and the amount of fights has stopped. This was 2 years ago.
