Slowly but surely I've bee updating the Creatures Page. I'm nowhere near done, but it is coming slowly but surely. I keep getting distracted by my new resources, and by my DAR geneaology. Having a new and bigger local library may not be such a good thing after all... ;-)

Mythological Creatures

A recent email conversation with a visitor has inspired me to bump up my re-working of the Mythological Creatures section to add sources to each page, and to do more research as I'm doing so. I've already started uploading the completed pages, and hope to be done within the month (job-hunting / moving in permitting, of course!).

That being said, if there is an entry that you have questions about, or have better / different information about, I'd love to know! You can email me at either: or

    I've made some additions and corrections to many of the entries in the Deities & Creatures section of the 'Realm.

    I'm still working on the updates, but due to numerous election-related phone calls my internet has been going up and down all day, and I figured I should make the updates I've completed while I have the chance.

    If you notice any errors and such, please let me know! If there is a factual error, give me a source (or three) to reference so I can do some research and get things fixed.

    I've just uploaded a massive deities and creatures section update.

    Several Greek deities have been added and tweaked, and there is now information about each of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. The general demons and spirits of hell page have been worked on as well as a few other pages here and there for spelling mistakes and such.

    If you notice anything amiss (other than some pages not going anywhere--I know about those, and am slowly working on generating the missing pages), do let me know.

    muses_realm: (Strife!)
    Many, many updates this time! I've been busy, so I haven't had as much time for updating as I thought I would or as I would have liked. C'est la vie.

    In the Roman section there is a new page about the Roman Calendar. The festivals page, the seven hills page, the writers page, and the terms page have had updates and tweeks done to them.

    The Deities section has had some updating and tweeking, particularly in the Roman and Creatures areas. Speaking of which...I've created a community for mythological creatures in fandom. I haven't done much with it yet, but if you are interested in helping me (and [ profile] pknight) out by becoming a moderator or watching it, I'd love to have you!

    And finally, the Creations section has been updated. There is a new header, a new friends only banner, new LJ icons, a new PSP tutorial, a new PSP brush, and a new PSP tube. The header, friends only banner, and one LJ icon match, btw.

    I've added or tweaked fifty Greek Deities, Roman Deities, and Mythological Creatures in their section of the 'Realm.

    I've updated the Deities Section of the 'Realm with new or updated information on 23 Greek, Roman, and Egyptian Deities and a few mythological creatures.

    The Mythological Creatures page has a few new and tweaked entries and many new pictures. I also attempted a small spelling and grammar check while I was updating the codes, but I still may have missed somethings. If you notice anything amiss, please let me know so I can fix it.

    The Deities Page has also seen some tweaks and additions, mainly in the Norse and Egyptian areas.

    I've also added a Bibliography for the Deities Page as a whole.

    Happy Christmas!

    I've given my Mythological Creatures page its own section in the Deities Area. There's not really any new information, but the whole thing has been reformatted and moved out of the Grimoire of Magick. It should be easier to update and navigate now, and with all the crossover with deities it was just easier to put the two sections together.

    I'll be adding some pictures and images to some of the listings in both the Deities and Creatures sections in the coming days. New LJ Icons, Wallpapers, and other creations are also coming in the near future.
