Talking Beasts = Childish? Folklore if full of that [In reply to] Can't Post

LOTS of folklore, be it Germanic, Celtic, or Greco-Roman, features "talking beasts"...yet they are considered to be quite serious parts of folklore and mythology. I mean its Archetypal: the talking animals, etc.

"Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name, but what's puzzling you, is the nature of my game"

Formerly known on TORN as "Draug the Unspeakably Violent"
