Mythology and Lure of the Labyrinth
The world of Lure of the Labyrinth is an amazing world, filled as it is with outrageous - and often disgusting - MONSTERS. You'll be interacting a lot with these monsters as you play Lure of the Labyrinth. So we thought you might want to know a little more about them. |
The first thing you should understand is that some of the Lure of the Labyrinth's monsters are totally new and invented for the game. They have names like Scrubby and Imp and Salamander. Then there are other monsters that are drawn from various world mythologies. These include characters like Yeti (from Tibet) and Eloko (from Central Africa) and Medusa (from Greece). The mythology-based monsters in Lure of the Labyrinth don't always look exactly like their specific models. Sometimes they're more like a combination of very similar characters from different mythologies. And they don't always act exactly like their specific models, either. For instance, Medusa was so horrifying in her original Greek myth that anyone who looked at her was instantly turned into stone. Now we don't think anyone will turn into stone when they see Medusa in Lure of the Labyrinth ... but then again, we've been advised by our lawyers not to make any promises! What we can say, though, is that each of the Lure of the Labyrinth's monsters will eventually appear - with a short "bio" - in the Bestiary section of your TPC once you actually encounter them in the game.
And beyond that, if you want to meet the monsters, it's time to start playing Lure of the Labyrinth ...
