Some of these creatures were once firmly believed to exist, while others made their debut in works of art, poetry or riddles, taking on life of their own as cultural icons that persist to this day. Perhaps one of the greatest influences on modern Youkai awareness was the artist Toriyama Sekien, who illustrated over 200 creatures - both traditional and of his own design - in a series of four books published in the late 1700's.

From the Dungeon to the Dictionary I recently received an e-mail from a correspondent who noted that my list of forms of government lacked the word magocracy .
