Victims of Karoshi by Pyramiddhead Victims of Karoshi by Pyramiddhead

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. 

Included are complete revisions and the unseen complete backstories of two of the most well known urban legends 'Kuchisake-onna/The Slit Mouthed Woman' and 'Teke Teke'.

This ebook also contains several bonus stories and Illustrations influenced by general Japanese horror created before New Darkness In The East.

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, the hauntings of the victims of karoshi have escalated and multiplied to a dangerously drastic levels. Though isolated and mostly disconnected from each other. Ones left alone collect the spirits of those who died a similar death by karoshi and function as  if part of a colony haunting collectively. Treating the large urban areas as a thriving colonies, in groups they have a dangerous effect on the mental state of people in a given area elevating levels, of stress, depression, and work anxieties to levels never experienced before. With this infestation the rate of suicides has drastically increased, the colonies ever growing as new spirits enter in. The ghosts mentioned in the stories above have been afflicted by this and their behavior altered, and their haunting more sinister and frequent then previously thought, building colonies of their own. Patients are now absolutely terrified during their hospital stays as the spirit of Ms. Naoko Nakamura is far from what she once was, helpless patients violated by this entity die from the shock of such encounter. People have been turning up dead waiting at various bus stops throughout the city, people are now scared to travel around the city by bus due to the spirit of Mr. Tadashi Watanabe. People at the prominent Masato Japanese Real Estate Corporation no longer work at night and operations have been slowed down due to the sudden mysterious deaths of several night workers, the company now has a grim realization that the supposed haunting of Ms. Yumiko Tanaka are true and spiraling out of control. Mass suicides rates have now plagued Shigeo Banking,workers have been found hanging and not uncommonly seen falling from the roofs and windows of the building, Mr. Ryusei Sato curse has now taken a very dark turn. As a member of the Lantern society victims of the karoshi though dangerous are not hard to deal with when isolated. But when a colony of victims has formed in a given area due to an isolated presence the results can be catastrophic. With the only solution being to find and exorcise the original source, 'the queen spirit' before the colony and curses grows to an overwhelming point to deal with.
