okami leader Shizu

I had this NPC harass the party throughout the adventure withdrawing before she could be cornered.  They eventually pinned her at the Lake Bed (see tactics below).  But she eventually became a respected enemy and instead of killing her they knocked her out and used the sacred brush to rewrite her memory and alignment.  She […]

My PCs skipped the Pagoda portion of the dungeon but a more deadly version was in the Munasukaru’s Penance area. BUSO GEISHA (GREATER TIGBUANA BUSO) Medium undead, chaotic evil Armor […]

The Okami

The Okami are the spawn of Munasukaru.  Full bloodied Okami (i.e. their father was another oni or fiend) are ja noi oni.  Half blooded Okami (i.e. their father was a non-oni, in this case a hobgoblin bakemono) are either humanoids or monstrosities depending on what exactly is birthed. They both have similar appearances – long […]
