Campaign of the Month: June 2012
Oni No Yukio
Ceramic Demon Mask
This is a ceramic mask formed into the likeness of a Kaidanese Oni. It sports a horsehair beard tied through small holes in the chin of the mask. The eyes and mouth are open, and there is a think silk strap which holds the mask onto a wearer’s head.
This mask radiates moderate conjuration magic.
When worn, the mask grants the user a +2 insight bonus on its host’s Perception checks, and grants them darkvision 60 ft., low-light vision, and detect magic at will.
This ceramic Oni-Mask bears the representation of a devil spirit. Devil masks are used for protection from evil spirits. Devil masks serve two purposes; the first to portray the devil and create disasters or cause the plague, and conversely they are used to ward off evil spirits.
On the evening of New Years, people sing to drive the evil spirit away and for good luck they scatter beans as a sign of the coming spring.
There are special Devil masks which have been handed down from generation to generation.
