Mythcreants Invasion

October 2018

It’s October, the spoooooookiest month of the year. While Halloween is technically the 31st, deep in our hearts we know it extends from September through most of November. Bring on the werewolves, monsters, and ghosts!

Speaking of ghosts, we’ve got a post for you about how gods and the afterlife effect fantasy settings, but that’s not all! We’ve also got an excellent guest article about ableism in fiction, which is scary, but not in a good way. Rounding out these spooks is a post about Mouse Guard, where you play an adorable rodent always in danger of being gobbled up by predators.
