I've been playing a game that uses a lot of mythological creatures, vampires, sphinxes, kitsune, tengu, minotaurs, etc.

But then they used Lorialets. The only easy source on it that cites things, is a Wikimonde article, whatever that is, which itself cites this scholarly-looking French PDF about Gargantua and Pantagruel? Can't find "Lorialet" in there?

Other sources, say that lorialets come from the anonymous chapbooks that were the inspiration for the more famous Gargantua and Pantagruel of François Rabelais.

Is there page-number-and-line style confirmation that that fictional work was the origin of lorialets? Or is there an even older source?

  • Which game? You should add all the relevant information. Sep 15 at 13:18
  • Have you checked La grande encyclopédie des fées? They appear there... Sep 15 at 13:28
  • @MardukTrimegistus - Do I... Have to buy that? ... And how is the game important? Not that I can remember which game it is... It's just how I found out the idea exists. It's not like it's the source.

  • by indicating the game we may confirm how notable the subject is. The game itself could also be a lead to another source, as sometimes developers disclose the myths that inspired the game. History without sources is pointless. Sep 18 at 15:15
