It's only about a week left to the camp! Hope you all are excited. :D
Here's a little more information about the characters in our camp story.
Firstly, we have Orochi, our villain.
Most famously depicted with 8 heads, Orochi is often viewed as a symbol of evil, with power matched only by the nine-tailed fox demon, Kyuubi.
Next, we have Izanagi.
According to legend, Izanagi and his wife, Izanami, created Japan and all the deities together. Thus, he could be said to be the boss god. Unfortunately, his wife died while giving birth, thus she won't be making an appearance at our camp.
And then we have Amaterasu.
She is the Goddess of the Sun and the Universe. The Emperor of Japan is said to be the direct descendant of Amaterasu herself, and as such, she is one of the more commonly recognized deities.
And here's Tsukuyomi.
Tsukuyomi is the God of the Moon, and the second of the "three noble children" born by Izanagi. Tsukuyomi is also present in many mediums, and thus is also one of the more recognizable deities.
Lastly, we have Susanowo.
Susanowo is the God of the Sea and Storms, third of the "three noble children". He was banished from the Heavens due to his temper, but upon reaching Japan, his first deed was to slay Orochi. Would he be the key to defeating Orochi?
