51 Oni

This week we get into this weird beast. This incredible Hulk, Mr. Hyde wannabe from the folk lore of Japan! We talk about Oni though the editions and how this is more akin to a creature that existed in all the other editions known as an Oni Mage. James also takes us through the incredibly rich (and confusing) origin of Oni in Japanese folklore - that he no doubt absolutely butchers. Join us this week for the D&D 5e Oni from the Monster Manual!
