A reboot, of sorts, of Reynard the Fox, everyone's favorite brutal, amoral trickster. I found a much older, much more nuanced version of the fox's stories. Today, we meet his father, get an origin story, and see him trying to make things right in a society run by predators...or is he working a long con to eat all the animals in his charge? With Reynard, we never really know.
The creature this week is the Talasam, who will very politely ask you for a human sacrifice.

Dionysus was the god of wine from Greek myths and the last Olympian to earn a place on Mount Olympus. His story starts with him being born from Zeus's thigh...and then somehow gets weirder. He does make a lot of really fun, dangerously intense fans among the humans, though.
The creature is the Tenjoname! He's a helpful ghost who will clean your ceilings with his filthy tongue!

A completely new version of the Mulan legend, sourced from a story from the late middle ages, so even if you think you know the Mulan story, this version has twists and turns that make her big secret, that she's a woman pretending to be a man, the least of her worries.
The creature is the Manticore! It's terrifying, but not for the reasons that it should be terrifying!
