Yokai Battle

Have you ever believed something to be true to such a state that it actually became true? Probably not so much in the form of a physical thing, anyway. If you did summon a little creature by sheer will of your beliefs or fears, you would have yourself a yokai, according to Japanese culture. If you were of particularly strong personality, you could even learn to train these creatures. Such is the place you take in Yokai Battle, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter now.
What if you had a fear or belief that was so strong that you actually willed a little creature into being? Well, in Japanese folklore, that's what a yokai is.
Hmm... *believes really hard in a million dollars and an '88 Monte Carlo SS just showing up next to my desk* ... ... ... Damn... Oh well. I don't really think that's how it's supposed to work, anyway.
Moving on, the yokai fought against mankind and were going to take over, but several people decided to stand up against them. They were the shamans. It's one of these shamans, but in the modern world, that you play as in Yokai Battle.
