New Darkness In The East takes place in Japan following an event known as ‘the skyfall’ in which a mysterious object has fallen from the sky in the middle of the night, fluctuating and disturbing energy sources throughout all of Japan. In the following days paranormal incidents appear to be on a drastic new rise. An ominous new atmosphere as fallen over Japan. Restless spirits have taken terrifying new insect-like forms and behaviors, they have become stronger, their presence more widespread, their curse amplified and more dangerous than ever before. The backstories will focus on the life, their death, the original ghost legend, and lastly the new amplified curse of each new individual ghost presented. This new take on Japanese horror combines the two great fears of ghosts and that of insects. Combining both of these unpleasantries into the creation of several new ghosts and stories of varying length inspired by the Japanese horror culture surrounding ghosts and urban legends.
Below I will include a very short section from the full story about the new curse of this entity:
New Darkness In The East - Since the day of the skyfall event, it is now rumored that the spirit of a dead dominatrix has come back with a curse. More and more reports of men being found emasculated, humiliated, and even dead from various reports of the extreme practices such as unusual self inflicted erotic asphyxiation without a clear cause nor motivation. This epidemic seems to have been targeting prominent,ambitious, and successful men reducing their character completely, from the strong mind they were thought to be to feeble men begging on their knees to be disciplined. The character change is so out of whack and spontaneous, it feels as if its some sort of mind control or body snatching. When around any man afflicted by this strange phenomenon there is a heavily ominous and dreadful presence lingering around. If you're a man, you feel vulnerable and susceptible to something that is there yet you cannot see. Few women who were close to men afflicted like this remember seeing a glimpse of a bone-chilling form around there man that caused them to run away and never return, each woman highly distressed at the mere mention. As a member of the Lantern Society this is a highly dangerous mission for any male member to take on, as they may lose themselves easily in the mere presence of this spirit. Without the help from the male members and especially the American with the gift to solve such cases, it may seem impossible discovering the motivations of this spirit. The only way seeming to employ some old fashioned investigation into the recent past of this spirit and the life of the mysterious of Mr. Aiko known as The Mistress Noir.
