Description
"What should you ask a magic mirror? How do you outwit a genie? Where should you dig for buried treasure? Fantasy media's favorite clichés get new life from How to Slay a Dragon: A Fantasy Hero's Guide to the Real Middle Ages, a historically accurate romp through the medieval world. Each entry presents a trope from video games, books, movies, or TV--such as saving the princess or training a wizard--as a problem for you to solve, as if you were the hero of your own fantasy quest. Through facts sourced from a rich foundation of medieval sources, you will learn how your magical problems were solved by people in the actual Middle Ages. Divided into thematic subsections based on typical stages in a fantastical epic, and inclusive of race, gender, and continent, How to Slay a Dragon is perfect if you're curious to learn more about the time period that inspired some of your favorite magical worlds or longing to know what it would be like to be the hero of your own mythical adventure"--,Back cover.
