[You were just living a normal life in your world. Everything was perfectly fine until that one day you had a weird dream. While dreaming, you find yourself in what appears to be a lush field with lots of open space. All of a sudden, a figure mysteriously appears right before your two eyes.]
“Oh? You’re confused about where you are and why you are here? Well, to explain that, I must first tell you a tale and then another tale later on. Have you heard of the great Sun Goddess and her son? Everyone here has. After the great goddess Okami Amaterasu and her prodigal son left for the land of the Celestial Plain to repair the damage that the great evils of Akuro and Yami had caused before being unleashed on our lands, the valleys of Nippon knew peace for a long time, indeed. There had been sacrifices in the battles that were, both on the plains and Nippon itself - they were not forgotten. Every day, the locals would stop to pause and remember.
Over time, though, the truth turned into legend. The people gradually forgot the gods, yet again. Even the statues placed in remembrance of those brave sacrifices were eventually forgotten. The gods powers grew weak again, because nobody remembered to honour them. A great evil has escaped from the Celestial Plain, where the mother and son fought most valiantly, due to their powers slipping. And this is where you come in. I have used what remains of my own strength to bring folk here who could help us once more. I know this may be too much to ask.
But…will you please help us against this great evil? If you do so, and my powers return…I shall be able to grant you anything you desire.”
[And so you wake up to find yourself laying beside a brush and an inkpot in the very same place as the one in your dream.]
[Welcome to the land of Nippon, O chosen one.]
