Myths and Legends

Jason Weiser tells stories from myths, legends, and folklore that have shaped cultures throughout history. Some, like the stories of Aladdin, King Arthur, and Hercules are stories you think you know, but with surprising origins. Others are stories you might not have heard, but really should. All the stories are sourced from world folklore, but retold for modern ears. These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was a dangerous and wonderful place.

204-Russian Folklore: Get in the Bag


We're back in Russian folklore for a fun story about a soldier with some biscuits who fights demons, heaven, and yes, death itself.

The creature is the valravn and I just can't get over how cool that name is.
