The Guwange wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 07/30/14 11:37PM View full history


In Japan during the Muromachi period (1336-1573), people are being possessed by shikigami - spirits that grant supernatural powers, but also cause the victim to die exactly one year after possession.
In order to avoid a premature death, five talismans relating to the five Chinese elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water) must be obtained from five demons. Then one must travel to Mt. Gokumon to destroy the evil god, Guwange.
