An Extensive List of Mythical Creatures

Yet another list for the sake of writing reference. I went with the more basic/well known mythological creatures so I didn’t really include some of the old and very obscure ones. I also want to specify that these a more European/American based mythological beasts. There is an enormous amount of mythological creatures special to every part of the world. Perhaps I’ll make more lists of fantasy creatures but more country/region specific?

Anyways! Take care & enjoy!

Questions to Ask about your Magic System

Just a questionnaire that can help guide you when you’re building your magic system for your story or roleplaying world.

★ What can your magic do?

★ What can’t it do?

★ What is a price for overusing it?

★ Is there an “incorrect” way to wield the magic?

★ Does it require training?

★ Who possesses it?

★ Do you have to be born with it or obtain it?

★ Can animals have magic/how does it effect the animals of your world?

★ How does magic change your world’s caste system/economy/society?

★ What laws are in place concerning your magic? (is it legal, illegal, must be used in certain ways, etc.)

★ Does the magic require anything to wield? (ingredients, staff, wand, etc.)

★ Are there any indicators of a magic wielder?

★ Are there different types of magic?

★ If so, how do they differ?
