FILE/ Forest of Souls
ORIGINS/ Aokigahara Forest in Japan.
Second only to the Golden Gate Bridge in number of suicides in the world, Aokigahara Forest was once called the perfect place to die. The forest, dubbed the Suicide Forest, has the unfortunate distinction of being Japan's most popular place to commit suicide. This quiet, dark forest covers an expanse of 35 square kilometers and it situated in the shadows cast by Mt. Fuji. Over the course of the last 60 plus years, Japanese citizens has wandered into the woods and over 500 of them didn't make it out.
Some people say that there is something in the air. There is some sort of death or depression emanated from the trees. Others say that the forest is inhabited by evil spirits. Whatever the case may be, it doesn't change the fact that there are a lot of souls that have made Aokigahara their home. It makes for the perfect place to conduct a paranormal investigation. This is what happened. While there wasn't much in the way of footage to show, we did come out of the place with this item. The item was found nestled among a few archaic tree branches with a note that translated "we'll meet under the light of the second sun." It only be supposed that this was a cryptic way of saying, "Until we meet again," because if not, there there is much more to worry about given the fact that the solar system only has one sun.
From having been in the Suicide Forest for such a long period of time, this piece has developed a natural power of its own. There is no need to be alarmed as to whether or not this piece will cause one to commit suicide. It has already been tested and proven negative for such side effects. The power that this piece does have is the ability to summon souls. Not just one soul or two, neither. It has the ability to summon any soul that you want to summon. It doesn't matter from when and it doesn't matter from where. As long as it is a soul, it will be summoned to you. What is done with the soul is up to the person who is using the piece. It can be used for simple communication, the acquisition of knowledge, and dalso the acquisition of powers from specific souls (souls that have powers!). As far as what else can be done with the soul, the imagination of the user is the limit.
