half-oni geishas

This adventure, Five Deadly Shadows, is from Dungeon #195.  A 4e adventure which I converted to 5e.  I used this to show the players two things – the larger spiritual battle happening between Amaterasu and Tsuki-Yomi vs the oni god Fumeiyoshi.  As well as the cultural difference between East and West in particular for a Japanese-analogue culture.

Apart from emphasising these powers through the adventure and making it explicit that the Five Deadly Shadows worshiped Fumeiyoshi I played the adventure as written.

The half-one geishas support Namiko in the battle.
