Mab’s Handy Guide to Surviving the Supernatural

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: Kotofurunushi

Description:   100 year old koto (Japanese floor harp) that has come to life. Its music is said to heal the listener.

Where To Find It: Beautiful gardens

Frequency: Rare

Danger Level:  Negative.

Mab’s Eye View: Even I, wracking my brain, can’t come up with a reason to fear the Kotofurunushi. As spirits go, this one is entirely benign. It even heals people. I suppose you could theoretically trip on it, but the same thing goes for a cat. If you see one, rush off, get your sick grandfather or aunt, and enjoy.

Here's a koto that's not possessed…I think.
