  1. So where do you look for inspiration for your ethereals? i’ve read most of the classic mythology books, but i’m usually stumped when trying come up with content for “american” pantheons (a.k.a abenaki, ojibwe, etc.)

    • For the Ohlone & Miwok, I’ll typically start with the works of Alfred and Theodora Kroeber and then cross reference them with Wikipedia and anything published by the relevant tribes.

      Oliver La Farge is a decent starting point for the Navajo and the Olmec (but since his style is condescending and paternalistic, so I would definitely branch out to other sources).

      For the K’iche’ Maya I would start with the Popol Vuh, one of the few original codeces the Spaniards did not burn.

      I don’t actually know enough about the Abenaki or Ojibwe to offer advice, but I think a good rule of thumb for any of the first nations is to visit the websites for the current tribal governments and to look for printed collections of their mythology and folklore. There are a lot of collections out there.

  2. So i found a book that might be relevant to an in nomine asmodeus-centered campaign. It’s called The Golden Rule and Games People Play by Rabbi Rami Shapiro. I haven’t personally read it yet but it might be relevant to a campaign where asmodeus’ games are important to the ongoing storyline.

  3. So do you forsee doing a bit of screwtape reviewing in the future? I’ve been going on a c.s. lewis binge since last week.

  4. Also wanted to review 4 loves but dad says that it’s too long.

  5. would you consider doing a review of stranger things’ version of demogorgon? the show seems to be getting noticed alot in rpg groups.

  6. The. English translated Korean light-novel, called. “Dungeon Hunter”…
    You’ll find it on GravityTales.com …it’s. Similar. It holds some pf the names and titles of the demons, fallen angels, and celestial angels. It also has an rpg status screen style to it. You’ll be surprised at how it corresponds with your descriptions in a familiar level. I am also sure that it will bridge in some inspirations in your mind. Keep up the great work.
