Folklore References

Post by NeoTifa on Sat Jul 10, 2010 9:29 pm

Wow, first non-hidden forum thread in a while. Well, a lot of games use these kinds of references and resources for aeons, monsters, and such, so I thought I'd post this. If you have any sources of potential inspirations, post it. ^__^

30 humanoid creatures
14 legendary swords

That looks really interesting, and I could see how that would make the game better. Except I think Excaliber should be first on the list of popular swords. At least for me - I've never heard of any of the other swords, lol.

Norse mythology has a wide variety of characters and objects to get inspiration from. I am a big Norse freak (Ragnarok, Yggdrasil, etc).

Nortung is Seigfried's sword in the Ring Cycle operas by Richard Wagnar. It was his father's but it was broken and he died, but Seigfried reforges it. Sounds familiar somehow....

Both Murasame and Masamune are legendary samurai swords. They appears frequently in FF games, but legends are public domain.

Succubus is the female equivalent to an incubus, a demon that sleeps with humans to suck out their soul.

Onryo are vengeful spirits that haunt specific locations. The Grudge and the Ringu moviews feature textbook onryo.

Yurei are Japanese ghosts in general, of which onryo are one type. Can range from mischevious children to wandering mothers looking for the lost children.

Hitodama are ghostly blue or green flames that often appears with yurei.

Tsukomogami are ordinary household objects that are 100 years or older and gain a soul. They become animated and can move. Can range from sandals to laterns to umbrellas.

Do you speak Japanese? I don't know many people who call it Ringu instead of The Ring. Very Happy

So are we going to go with one type of mythology, or are we going to mix and match a few different myths and legends?

I speak very little in bits and pieces. Enough to indroduce myself. Ringu is the original as opposed to the Ring , which is the remake.

I certainly don't have a problem mixing mythologies.
