This is terribly self-serving because I am writing an urban fantasy novel right now and need some outside energy... Top 5 mythological creatures? (Is this how you play this game?)

this is exactly how you play this game, darling!

  • selkies.  ondines and sirens and merpeople and melusine too, but.  selkies.
  • medusa and her sisters/gorgons
  • banshees and/or hags-of-the-mist
  • just really the darker/unseelie fae traditions of the british isles in general
  • baba yaga’s chicken-legged hut counts as a creature
  • there are so many amazing japanese legendary creatures, but i’m especially fond of all the different demon/ghost-women, like the yuki-onna
