There are times when the forces unseen are far more wicked than what’s in front of you.
The elements are a fundamental belief humans have relied on for thousands of years. In Japanese culture, there are five; Earth (Chi), Water (Mizu), Fire (Ka), Wind (Kaze), and Void (Gai). Each of these has a driving force behind them, and here they have taken a dark turn.
With Chi, madness comes in all shapes and sizes in his garden made from the bones of the enemies of Earth.
Mizu takes a plunge through her victim’s mental health as a series of bizarre encounters escalate to the point where questions of reality and sanity end with deadly consequences.
Ka gives a Lovecraftian tale of one woman’s fight to save the Old Gods from the humans who seek to stop the return of Cthugha.
The Air from Kaze has the world ending and the Aurora Borealis chasing the last of humanity, turning them into monsters.
Last but not least, Gai’s Void takes a single man through the vast nothingness only to find his journey is not as it seemed. The light in the darkness is far from the comfort he’d been seeking.
