Shintakara: The City of Temples
Summary: Shintakara: The City of Temples is a FATE Core, modern fantasy game that takes place in the fictional Japanese city of Shintakara. Players take on the role of otherwise ordinary citizens of Shintakara thrust into the role of saving Shintakara’s future from a resurgence of its ancient past.

Shintakara: The City of Temples takes place in the fictional Japanese city of Shintakara. It is known as the City of Temples because of the numerous shrines and temples located in and around the city.  They dot the surrounding hills and mountains. They can be found nestled in hidden places on the small islands just off the coast and hidden among the rocky cliffs that overlook the ocean. They are found along the various forest paths of the vast natural preserve known as Konohara Park. They can even be found in the heart of downtown nestled between the Gap and McDonald’s.

The people of Shintakara are proud of their city, which over the centuries has grown from a small town to a thriving metropolis of well over three million people, including the various suburbs that surround the city proper. They are also proud of their heritage and many families, especially those who act as caretakers for one of Shintakara’s many shrines or temples take great pride in their ancient lineages. Most can recite the various legends, heroes, relics and deeds associated with their particular family and temple in great length and detail purely from memory.

While the people of Shintakara are proud of their legends, there are very few who still truly believe in them. They celebrate the various festivals and honor the rituals of the past, while maintaining the temples for the honor and prestige of the family, but few truly believe in the spirits they offer thanks to. They proudly tell tales and show off the sword that their ancestor used to slay demons, but hardly any of them really believe that demons ever existed, let alone still exist to this day. In this day and age, they have other concerns without worrying about the demons that might sleep beneath the city. However, the myths are real and those sleeping demons are about to awaken.
