Mission name: I Guess Not.
Mission rank: Event
Objective: Obtain special clay used by the ceramist.
Location: Namahage Festival
Reward: 10 Tickets
Mission Description: After returning to the shop, the ceramist will explain that he had stopped working because he was out of the clay he uses to craft his works. Considering himself something of a purist, the Oni refuses to work with any other materials and demands you fetch his clay for him if you want a mask.
Mission Details: The source of the Oni’s clay lies within the House of Tsukumogami, inanimate objects that have acquired a spirit after existing for more than 100 years. Everything in the mansion is sentient. Everything. Even the building itself. As it turns out, the clay comes from a giant, possessed ball of clay that is continually adding onto itself. It sells the clay that is more than 100 years old to the Oni to make his products. He was expecting the ceramist to come, but instead decides to congratulate you on your new job as a courier. Bring the clay back to the shop.

'This was just great.‘

There was one kind of Yokai that Hanbei liked more than any of the others, and their name was Tsukumogami, 100 or even 1000 year old items that had gained life and reverrence over their time, from umbrella to walls and more, each of them was a living breathing entity unto themselves and a god of the albiet small form that they presided within. Each of them, depending on how they had been cared for could have a totally different personality, some of them could be kind, helpful, and even loving. Others however could become bitter, heartless and cruel. It could take time to turn the heart of a Tsukumogami, but it was well worth the effort should one be willing to try. Of them all however, the umbrellas were always Hanbei's favorite. The way they hopped and stared with their cyclopean eye was kindof adorable to the eyes of the guanyin.

Though, the method that had led for her to be here was less than desirable, it seemed that the clay smith that had needed to make hanbei's mask was somewhat of a dullard. He had run out of clay, and with the festival being on he hadn't been bothered to get anymore, rather he had racked up a debt eating candy in such a voracious manner that he had completely forgone his duty, so, Hanbei had to come here for a Tsukumogami that was made of living clay, clay that needed to be given willingly in order to work for the mask making process. Hanbei figured that she would make a deal with them all, play a game with them all for some clay. Depending on the mood of the house it would likely go down well, Yokai liked making deals when it came to things like this, especially when you were giving them something that they deeply desired.

'Step 1 was entering the house.'

Knocking on the door and waiting respectively, hanbei would walk in as the door swung open ominously. Everything was quiet and silent, Hanbei would chuckle knowing that each and every thing in this house was alive, just by looking at the menagerie of odd beings in the doorway. Opening his mouth to speak he would announce himself before so much as taking a step into the house.

'It wasn't often Tsukumogami were on the back foot.‘

"Hello everyone, I know you're all there, look, i need to ask all of you a really big favor. I'm looking to have some of the clay the ogre down the street uses to make the masks. I was hoping one of you would be able give that for me. But, I don't want it for free, how about this, I'll play... one game with all of you, one game. After we finish, I get some clay and I'll be on my way. Then, if we have fun and you're all good, I'll come back for another game. How about that?"

One by one they all came out of hiding, it seemed that these guys by and large were the playful kind, Hanbei's speech had most of them nervous, which, as they came forward and had a look at the human they had to play with, turned to excitement. The game that they were to play quickly showed itself to be some rudimentary form of kemari. As the ball of clay took some of its clay off to form the ball, they all split into teams in the center of the house and had a bit of a test kick around before getting into the core of the game. Two teams, two goals. Hanbei as the honored guest got to begin... quickly passing the ball to the couch he would burst forward as umbrellas and carpets would attempt to mark one another and steal the ball. The couch, quickly overwhelmed allowed the ball to be stolen by a large lamp. That ran by and kicked for the goal with its single foot. The Rug that guarded the goal however blocked it with ease, passing the ball back into the frey.

As the game went on, they laughed and cheered as one team scored, then the other, and the first again. Soon enough, they were tired, the running around and shouting literally draining their energy to the point of exhaustion. The night had gone on for some time, Hanbei lay sprawled on the ground with the others in a mess...

'but it was time to go.'

Bidding farewell to his new friends, Hanbei was given the ball they played with, returning to the Oni with prize in hand.
