GM Dictionary: Occult #4

For June I wanted to go a little spooky and magic-related. This month we are going to cover some of the many, many occult words out there so that you can better use these terms at the table for different cultures in your world and different types of magic!

Therianthropy The more appropriate term for what is deemed lycanthropy in D&D, this generally refers to people who can shapeshift into some kind of animal.
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!
