Well, things are getting back under control in my personal life. I’ve just started a new job, with another restaurant, and they already love me like a fat kid loves chocolate.
Right now, I’m waiting on the last few images for Enchantments of Black Tokyo. Soon as I have them, I lay that puppy out, and you’re reading a truly massive collection of spells, magic items and general hentai weirdness on your tablet.
I’m going to break the Enchantments of Black Tokyo sourcebook into what I feel are fairly obvious chapters: spells, wondrous items (itself broken into three subheads: consumable magic items, wondrous sex toys, and regular wondrous items, due to the MASSIVE size of this chapter), magic armor, magic weapons and artifacts (also broken into two subheadings: major and minor artifacts). A smaller chapter will deal with new archetypes, sorcerer bloodlines and the like.
So today, you’re getting a preview of each chapter. A new spell, some new wondrous items, weapons and magical armor. The image on the page was the inspiration for the new spells; there’s a ton of similar anime homages scattered throughout this book, and hopefully you’ll have some fun hunting them all down.
Expect Enchantments of Black Tokyo soon.

Dark Lolimon Card (Cn)
Aura moderate transmutation CL 10th
Slot none Price 2,500 gp (DC 21) Weight negligible
This collectable game card depicts a little loli girl dressed in a costume that is supposed to make her look fearsome, but only accentuates her butt. The Japanese text gives in-game stats for fearsome horrors like werewolves, dragons and demons, but their roles are played by petite seductresses in fantasy cosplay.
If the Dark Lolimon Card is torn and tossed in the general direction of a creature, that creature is affected by baleful polymorph. On a failed save, the creature becomes a Small Humanoid with 1 HD and 9s in all ability scores and no special talents or abilities. The creature speaks one language spoken by the person who tore the card and shares his or her alignment. Her skimpy clothing resembles her previous form in some manner.
Requirements Scribe Scroll, baleful polymorph
Dying Girl Panties
Aura moderate transmutation CL 5th
Slot belt Price 18,500 gp (DC 28) Weight negligible
These bruise-purple silken panties have a little grey skull decoration on the gusset, and the English motto “Die a little death with me” printed repeated along the waistband. Goryohime often hand stitch these panties as a gift for young girls who have experienced the noose dream- giving them a chance to experience existence as a Goryohime undead temporarily before committing to the noose forever.
Upon command or at need, up to three times per day, the wearer may call upon the panty’s magic to be transformed via undead anatomy I. While in this form, she becomes immune to suffocation, death effects and the sickened and nauseated conditions and gains lowlight vision. This form may be maintained for up to three minutes per activation. The Dying Girl Panties will always transform the wearer if daily uses remain when she is targeted by a death effect or begins to suffocate.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Items, undead anatomy I, creator must be a Goryohime
Cost 9,250 gp (DC 25)
Aura moderate evocation CL 5th
Slot none Price 4,500 gp (DC 23) Weight 5 lbs
This ancient crucifix is a relic of the Edo-Shogunate period of Japanese history, when Kirishitans (Japanese Catholic coverts) were actively persecuted. This large, heavy crucifix is gilded and unlike Western crucifixes, it depicts a seated figure, who might be the Buddha, but is instead an atypical depiction of Christ. This figure is seated in the lotus position at the center of the cross’ arms.
The Kirishitan Crucifix is an extremely large holy symbol, usually held aloft during a holy procession. If this crucifix is presented as a holy symbol by any Christian or Gothic Christian Cleric channeling positive energy, the cleric rolls D8s rather than D6s to determine the channeled energy’s efficacy.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Items, Knowledge (religion) 5 ranks, ability to channel positive energy 3d6
Cost 2,250 gp (DC 21)
Aura strong transmutation CL 10th
