What makes all those monsters like werewolves and vampires so scary? The fact they’re so much stronger than us. We couldn’t possibly hope to defeat them – unless we know their weakness.
But what if those myths were intentionally misleading? Vampires want you to think they can fly, transform, hypnotise and possess inhuman strength because otherwise if you walk too close to them with your garlic breath you’ll destroy them. They want you to keep your distance out of fear. The myths are a strategic defence.
Your challenge, pick a monster (popular or lesser known) and take every single one of their strengths away. How do they live? How did they(or their ancestors) spread the myths? Let the story flow(and chat about it or link to it in the comments).
