Ao Andon by Carolina-Eade Ao Andon by Carolina-Eade
"Ao Andon"

In the Edo period, a popular pastime was hyaku monogatari, or "a hundred stories". A crowd of
people would gather in a room where a hundred candles were burning inside andon lamps, which
had been covered in blue paper to create an eerie atmosphere. Then a hundred frightening supernatural
tales would be told, and after each one was finished, a candle would be put out. When the last story
was told and the room went dark, the demon called ao-andon was said to appear.

I think at the end of the game, you are suppose to count off, and that there will be one more person then you started with...

!!!!!!!(attention rôliste français, ce commentaire contient un spoiler pour la campagne du jeu de rôle français KURO, de 7ème Cercle)!!!!!!!!!

as it so happens, my friends and I played a scenario from a french rpg called Kuro, mixing japanese horror and cyberpunkn in which we faced the Ao-andon.
We were trying to find missing people, after a student from Todai commited suicide.
it appeared that the student was playing the 100 Monogatari with his friends, and the akuma really appeared, and took them to his world.

Being special somehow, we're (our characters, that is) are able to see spirits. So was one of the students that vanished.
We organized a game (and played it in LARP -live action role play, complete with sound effects and all. really freaky!)

long story short, we went to Ao-andon's world, and rescued all but one prisonners, and did some serious damages on him, with offuda and consacrated salt.
a very, very intence game session it was.
