Episode 243: Good gods!

We're back again with another great episode this week. This time we're talking about deities- how does a mortal become one? And if bad turns to worse and you have to fight one, how can you level the playing field? We've got some fun ideas, so come with us and share your thoughts below!

And the winner of the final drawing for the fantastic leather book cover from MaumeeRiverLeather.com is...... BlackMagus2651! Congratulations! That brings our drawings to a close, so let me take this opportunity and thank all of the great people who made them happen. You are all awesome!

Until next time, remember: if someone asks you if you're a god, you say YES!

Percy Jackson

Sandman, a graphic novel series by Neil Gaiman

Tulpa, the belief that if enough people believe in something, it becomes true

The Apparition, the movie I was referencing when talking about tulpas. Here's a weird thing though: the movie isn't actually about a tulpa, it's just about an evil spirit that kills people. However, the marketing heavily implied the creature's power was based on belief (possibly based on an earlier version of the script, or possibly just a misunderstanding or intentional mislead of the movie's plot) which would have made for a much better movie IMO.
