10:31 am: Mab’s Handy Guide to Surviving the Supernatural

Mab f 2

Mab here, Prospero Inc. company gumshoe.

As part of my campaign to protect you woefully-uninformed humans from your own folly—in hopes of saving even one of you from an elf-induced death, or worse—here is some of my gathered wisdom concerning the supernatural world.

Read. Pay attention. And maybe you’ll live. 

For those of you who are just coming in, we’ve started with Tsukumogami, Japanese household objects that wake up after their 100th birthday and become animate.





Name:  Minowaraji

Description:   Animated farm tools being carried around by an old fashion Mino—a Japanese straw coat. The thing thinks and acts like a rural farmer. Kind of like all the farmers’ sense and nonsense got absorbed by his stuff.

Where To Find It: Farms and tool sheds.

Frequency: Occasionally

Danger Level:  It’s carrying a hoe. Hoes have sharp edges. Keep away!

Mab’s Eye View: These minowaraji are very, very touchy. Generally, they are benign to human beings, but hurt their feelings and, whoa Nellie!, do they go for you! I had—you’d call it a cousin—once who accidentally insulted one by calling it a Kosode no Te. Thing swung his hoe and separated my—you’d call it a cousin’s head from his body.

Luckily, his head being attached to his body was optional. But that would not be the case for you!

Thanks Caekias!

Love your weekly 'column'! Really miss your adventures though. You and the Properos gave me many moments when suddenly everything seemed right, know what I mean? Sudden but fleeting, as all good things are. Oh yeah, always thank you when a cool breeze turns up!
