GM Dictionary: Spirits #16
October is finally here! It is time for tricks, treats, and ghosts! This months GM Dictionary is centered around spirits and some of the different forms and aspects they have had over the centuries.
The ancient Egyptian concept of soul or spirit involved different, distinguishable parts. The jb, or ib, is the heart and one of the most important aspects of one’s soul. Without the heart one could not properly move on into the afterlife because it held emotion, will, and intent of a person’s being.
This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
