Piscares, The Reader
Hello! I'm Piscares :)
I love coffee, modern architecture, technology, and all things writing. I am currently in school to get my J.D. and become a corporate lawyer, so I am usually busy. But, if you need to message me about the works I have available for sneak peeks, I will get back to you ASAP. With that being said;
"Old Gods, Summoned" is a (possibly) long choose-your-own-adventure novel that details the nightmarish quests 18-year-old Kanai Yoshinaka experiences as he attempts to solve Kumisu, Japan's serious cultist problem.
Kumisu is a rather quaint town located in the Kii Peninsula of Japan, North of Kushimoto and East of Tanabe. Even despite being in the rainiest area of Japan, Kumisu experiences unusually high rainfall. Flooding occurs often and heavily, and the highly spiritual native population believes they are cursed. In the southernmost areas of Kumisu is the new, large city that encompasses most of the businessmen, investors, and rich fat-cats attempting to exploit the plant genetic resources in the nearby forests. Skyscrapers, apartments, and busy intersections are common. To the north, the ancient, secluded farms and small tribal villages that make up "Old Kumisu." A majority of the people here are farmers or craftsmen. Surrounding Kumisu are dense, humid forests (except for the main road which leads to Tanabe).
Kanai Yoshinaka, an 18-year-old boy who just graduated Kumisu High School and has plans to attend The University of Tokyo. Yoshinaka is of a medium-build, pale-skinned, jet black hair paired with fudge-colored eyes, and of a medium height. An "average Joe" who has no idea just how important he is to his hometown.
Of course, how Kanai Yoshinaka acts and expresses himself is entirely up to you. You can make him cautious and untrusting or headstrong and courageous.
Yoshinaka, having been accepted into the University of Tokyo, has begun working at his mom's bakery in the outskirts of Kumisu City. Business is slow and the hours are short, so Kanai has a lot of time on his hands. However, what little business the bakery does get usually leads to some pretty interesting gossip among the customers. Rumors would have it that dark cultists are inhabiting the nearby forests and practicing evil rituals to awaken otherworldly demons and spirits.Whispers of old gods and eldritch being are nothing short of extremely common.
DISCLAIMER: I wish I could give this a maturity rating of 8/8, meaning that it may not be comfortable even for many that are 18+. This story can get DEEPLY disturbing. Not only is there your average s*x, substance abuse, and swearing, but there is also grotesque erotica, human trafficking, disturbing sacrificial rituals, and more things I won't mention here. If you are not equipped to handle scenes of extreme violence and disturbingly detailed scenes, DO NOT PLAY. This is for REAL MEN AND WOMEN >:). Play at YOUR OWN RISK. You have been warned.
This is a fictionalized town in Japan. No references to actual religions or cults are made.

THE STORY OF A MAN LOOPING THROUGH TIME TRYING TO SAVE HUMANITY FROM HORRORS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.
Kato emigrated to the United States in 2009 at 18 years old after the mysterious death of his parents. His entire community blamed their death on him, but without evidence they could not convict him. So, his only option was to flee to another country with what little dignity he had left. He moved to the small American town of Wilmington,
[SCRIBBLED OUT]. He got a job as a farmhand and worked there for many years, learning better English and growing accustomed to the culture of the south. He even adopted a southern accent after a few years. In 2020, occult groups began summoning the evil beings they worshipped. The small town of Wilmington and many others were overrun with eldritch horrors and unimaginably grotesque beings. The first time around, humanity was lost to THECTE, OVERSEER OF SUFFERING in 2021. Kato accepted his fate and positioned his trusty shotgun underneath his chin as Thecte's wrath consumed his town. Before he could pull the trigger, his [SCRIBBLED OUT] appeared before him and began speaking in tongues. Kato was transported back in time with all the knowledge of what was going to happen. He was given a second chance.
In fact, he's been given 64 chances so far...
Perhaps he can save humanity on his 65th.
