Last week, Wyrd Games showed off the first side of their Undying Story Encounter Box for Through the Breach, and this week we’re going to look at the other half. Meet Minako Rei and Katashiro.
Minako Rei is the last surviving member of the Order of Balance, whose job it was to hunt down the corrupted sorcerers who used their magic to feed on the souls of peasants, using the energy to extend their lives. After her Order was wiped out by the traitor, Manos (looked at last week), she became single-minded in her pursuit of the Jiangshi and the evil Manos.
Minako Rei is truly a force to be reckoned with. She can use Kharma to seal another’s fate, causing an enemy to suffer any damage that Minako herself suffered. Perhaps most notably, Minako is able to create the Katashiro that she uses to aid her in her mission.
The Katashiro are paper creations brought to life with magic- how awesome is that?! They are able to attack immediately upon being summoned or placed, and they are able to turn into origami cranes to place themselves in new locations. As constructs and Oni, they can find a home in many Ten Thunders crews.
These three models join forces with the Wanyudo, a moving, flaming wheel in order to hunt down Manos and bring balance at last.
I absolutely love the idea of these Story Encounter Boxes. These take the encounters and make them approachable and full of all the flavour and character we’ve come to know and love from Wyrd.
Will you be having a go with the Undying Story Encounter Box?
