As you look at the history of any civilization, you will find stories of great feats and terrible deeds. As time passes, these become a representation of the best and the worst of the civilization from which they originate. We grow up with these mythologies and see in our culture the creation of our own, which are influenced by those that have come before. Understanding where the ideas for our stories come from will not only help us to better understand the nature of our stories, but help us to understand how we can make our own worlds seem more alive. It’s easy to tell when the author of a story has taken time to develop their world, giving the sense that there is more going on than the characters are aware of. Creating mythologies within our worlds is a large part of that and helps to flesh out the characteristics and motivations of our characters. Come and see how Mythology has shaped the stories we have and how it can help make your world better.
