Kitsune (pronounced kit-soo-nay) are Japanese fox-spirits, known for tricking unwary mortals. We come to know them through traditional tales, wherein they do this for many reasons: purely for fun, to devour mortals or steal their souls, and so on. But this card game is about kitsune who play tricks to punish mortal fools for their foolishness, sometimes teaching them a lesson in the process. By correcting mortal foolishness, the foxes earn their tails. Those who gain all nine tails of the mythical spirit fox earn their place among the kitsune elders.
