Lore. Does it matter to you and your campaign? Does it matter to your players? Is it important that it does? All those questions and more will be answered.

Lore is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "A body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth."

DMs and Nerds alike know Lore to be something grand, mysterious, and magical.

YOU ARE SURPRISED AND KILLED BY A MANTICORE! IT QUICKLY SHREDS YOUR FLESH AND DEVOURS YOU!

Mythic Monster Ecology: The Manticore

What does man truly fear? Death itself, or relinquishing their existence on someone else’s terms? What if this true fear had a face? What if this same fear took men, and turned them into the beasts they fled from?

Today on Mythic Monster Ecology, we will be learning about the Man-Eating Beast, the Manticore. We will discuss its Origin Myth, dissect its archetypal traits, reveal a TRUE ACCOUNT of a REAL MANTICORE, and talk about Manticore Combat Tactics.

Ctesias, Indica (summary from Photius, Myriobiblon 72)
(trans. Freese) (Greek historian C4th B.C.):

"The Martikhora (Manticore) is an animal found in this country [India]. It has a face like a man's, a skin red as cinnabar, and is as large as a lion. It has three rows of teeth, ears and light-blue eyes like those of a man; its tail is like that of a land scorpion, containing a sting more than a cubit long at the end. It has other stings on each side of its tail and one on the top of its head, like the scorpion, with which it inflicts a wound that is always fatal. If it is attacked from a distance, it sets up its tail in front and discharges its stings as if from a bow; if attacked from behind, it straightens it out and launches its stings in a direct line to the distance of a hundred feet. The wound inflicted is fatal to all animals except the elephant. The stings are about a foot long and about as thick as a small rush. The Martikhora [the Persian word for man-eater] is called in Greek Anthropophagos (Man-Eater), because, although it preys upon other animals, it kills and devours a greater number of human beings. It fights with both its claws and stings, which, according to Ktesias (Ctesias), grow again after they have been discharged. There is a great number of these animals in India, which are hunted and killed with spears or arrows by natives mounted on elephants."

I guess I’m doing this weekly now? Ugh...
You know this is just my overenthusiastic ill-informed opinion, right?

Heroic Hubris: To Slay A Dragon [D&D/RPG]

Can a man stand against a nuclear bomb?
What if this bomb were a living creature, with an imperious will, and immortal anger?
What sort of man could fight against this monster, and live to tell the tale?
By what means can mere mortals attempt to overcome DRAGONS?

SUP NERDS
I’m Drew Cochran and these are my associates, Aroxthenes and Heracles, Son of Zeus.
Welcome to Heroic Hubris, where we survey legends of mythological heroes of different classic RPG Classes, and glean wisdom from them for our games!

Last week we talked about Dragons and stuff. This week we’re going to finish that discussion on dragons, from a human point of view, taking cues from mythology, anthropology, and whatever else comes up. Today we’re going to be looking at stories from a WIZARD, a KNIGHT, and a KING who each successfully slayed a dragon.

But before we get grandiose, I’m gonna show you two different anecdotes from history of people talking about dealing with dragons.

1st Anecdote - Dragon Hunters of India -
1658 - THE HISTORY OF FOUR FOOTED BEASTS Edward Topsell
https://archive.org/details/historyoffourfoo00tops/page/n6

2nd Anecdote - Titus “Livy” Livius Patavinus, a Roman historian.

An African reptile attacked the army of General Regulus. According to Livy,
“After many soldiers had been seized in its [the dragon’s] mouth, and many more crushed by the folds of its tail, its hide being too thick for javelins and darts, the dragon was at last attacked by military engines and crushed by repeated blows from heavy stones.”

We’ll look at stories of three different heroes; a Wizard, a Knight, and a King, who each defeated a dragon, and for the most part, avoided massive loss.

WIZARD: The Prophet Daniel - Wisdom, and Cunning - Bel and the Dragon
KNIGHT: The Redcrosse Knight - Character, Mettle, and Holy Aid/Power - The Faer..

Certainly not the last video we’ll make on this topic.
You know this is just my overenthusiastic ill-informed opinion, right?

Mythic Monster Ecology: True Dragons

Have you ever crossed swords with a dragon? A true king of beasts? A leviathan?
Or have you instead found yourself in the presence of a Mushu? A lying look-alike?

Today we will gaze upon the face of pride and re-learn the paths our forefathers dared to walk many centuries ago:

Today we will learn about true dragons.
How to understand, roleplay and wield true “dragon energy” in your RPGs,
How to employ true dragons in scenes of warfare,
And how to roleplay WITH the theme of Dragons as a player. (hue)
