    Folklore has many uses, and a quick trip through history would reveal many that you’ve come to expect.

And at the center of that world are the people who write and perform it all—as well as the stories about where their powerful gifts come from.

    Much like our instinct to set up a home in new places, humans are good at creating everything else we might need. And that includes folklore. But if even half of the stories that have been born in this one town are true, there’s a lot to be afraid of.
