Like a Fox

Foxes play an interesting role in the mythology of many cultures. They can be good or bad, and that usually varies from situation to situation, even with the same fox. They are nearly always the trickster of the story and in some cultures the trickster god takes on the form of a fox. Heather and I play a F2P MMORPG. The class of character we both play can turn into a fox. They are called venomancers and are modeled after the Yao Jing in Chinese mythology.

If you search for “fox” on Etsy you get a LOT of hits, almost 5,000. It seems many others are just as enchanted with foxes as those who made the myths.
