Europe is home to dwarfs, elves, faeries, gnomes and trolls to name a few. Some of the more localized versions are the Kobold (elf) from Germany, Red Cap from Great Britain, and the well-known Leprechaun from Ireland.
But even the far flung corners of the world, including China and the Orient have their share of mystical tales. Here you will hear stories of Angry Ghosts and Hungry Ghosts and children's fairytales are filled with tales of monsters and dragons.
There's nary a castle in Great Britain that doesn't have a ghost story, and many restaurants, inns and hotels in America also have ghostly visitors.
All of the great cultures of the world, such as Greek and Roman were based on the feats of their Gods, Goddesses and Warriors who performed superhuman feats. We still track those Gods today in the constellations in the sky and the astrological charts.
