Every World Needs a Platypus

Join Dino (Tyler), Aravar, Imachinate, Inky, and Red in a discussion on the Importance of magical beasts and animals in fiction and mythology. From iconic creatures such as the dragon or gryphon, to lesser known and ancient ones such as the Sirrush. The roles they play in the narrative, and the perception of the wilder lands that they create. 

In defense of the magical beasts of our world, we here at Worldcasting would like to call upon you to donate to the WWF- Australia to help them combat the devastation of the bushfire. Together, we can beat the destruction and save the mystery and wonder found in our world.
