Eoin's Tome of Tales
Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.Since time immemorial have people huddled around a campfire and told each other tales of the the terrible horrors and grand wonders that lurk just outside, there beyond the reach of the firelight. Often these tales tell less of a story and say more about the people and their beliefs, fears and ideals. When in your world people hear rustling in the night what fable causes them to shiver? If clothing is blown away by a playful wind what mischievous creatures do tired mothers blame for stealing them? I want you to write me a story told as a storyteller might recite it to his audience concerning a fairy-tale in your world (use the Vignette box) and also fill in the section concerning the historical basis, explaining what event or idea might have sparked someone to tell the tale. Lastly fill in the Variations section concerning the various alterations made to the tale throughout the ages (if relevant).
