Retro Encounter 193: Mythology and Folklore in RPGs
The little-known 13th labor of Heracles? Recording a podcast during an electrical storm.
06.20.19 - 10:58 PM

Mythology, including everything from fairy tales to foundational beliefs of ancient peoples, has influenced storytelling, literature, and human civilization for thousands of years. Many RPGs are heavily influenced by myth, and on today's Retro Encounter three folklore enthusiasts talk about mythology in RPGs in depth, from the best depictions of Cerberus to DOS freeware Thor puzzle-action games.

Grab your mirrored shield and winged sandals, and listen to Retro Encounter!
