Welcome to the Final Fantasy Forums’ Mythology Manual Noticeboard!
This shall serve as a hub for the Mythology Manual article series. Any news relating to the FFFMM shall be posted here so that it is easier to keep up to date.
What is the Mythology Manual?
The FFFMM is an article series which seeks to explore the mythological and historical origins of many of the Final Fantasy series’ most popular monsters, summons, characters, and concepts.
The intention is to investigate particular subjects and see what can be extracted from them. Every article is slightly different since the Final Fantasy creators have adapted material in very different ways. Some articles will be more clearly grounded in fact, and others may be more speculative in explaining what may have been done with the sources, intentional or otherwise. Likewise, some articles shall be longer pieces with much to say, whereas others will turn out to be small nuggets of information with little room for expansion.
The opinions expressed in each article are the author's own and may not represent the ‘official’ opinion of FFF, Square-Enix, or any other group or individual.
We would like discussion on your own opinions if they differ from (or are in accordance with) those expressed in these articles! You may respond to an article with your comments at any time.

Posts and Activities:
To benefit from the Community Token currency system on FFF there will now be CT rewards handed out to people who comment on a Mythology Manual article. The post must contribute towards a discussion, but if it qualifies then the member shall earn 1 CT!
There shall also be ‘Activities’ posted as comments in various Mythology Manual articles. The nature of these ‘Activities’ will vary depending on the subject matter. As examples they may include crosswords, sketches, or ‘What if?’ scenarios. Complete the task and you shall gain a reward (i.e ranging from between 1-5 CT).
Quizzes shall also be gradually released in the Study Panel if you wish to test yourselves on subjects covered by the Mythology Manual.
For those who want to go the extra mile and earn more CT, keep an eye out for updates in old articles. New 'Activities' will always be announced in this thread too.
Send a PM to Dionysos if you have any questions regarding the Mythology Manual.
