Mythcreants Invasion

March 2019

It’s March, which means we’re either here to stab Caesars or tell you about our favorite posts, and we’re all out of Caesars. Fortunately we have plenty of posts. One of our biggest splashes in a while is a long from look at why the trope of oppressed mages doesn’t work. After that, we continue our social justice commentary by covering terrible depictions of bullying. If you’re looking for more technical advice, we’ve got a look at how great plots can be laid low, tips for improving audience engagement, and one of Chris’ ever popular Lessons From Bad Writing posts. Then we analyze analysis, because why not?
