Ran it twice for two different groups, lots of plot points to develop ​ and a pretty big moral challenge for your players, overall a great starting adventure for YHS

Major spoiler beyond this point

I didn’t quite get why the Yokai would need to hang the bodies, seems like she’s doing that to cover her tracks but I can’t find a reason for that, I’ll try to involve Mojiro instead having him stage a double suicide to hush the​ murders
