It all started when...

I was just looking for a YouTube video that would delve into the lore about Io, the priestess from Greek mythology who was turned into a cow. After searching and looking I just didn't find any.

And then I noticed that there really wasn't any YouTube channel trying to explain the lore/mythos behind any of the demons/spirits/deities within the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) was a series. And that was a real shame!! Some of these stories are deep, rich, and fascinating. They deserve to be told by someone!

So despite myself, I decided it should be me who made the videos if no one else would. And so here I am.

What is it?

I've started a YouTube video series named "The Compendium" where I pick one demon from the SMT series and explain their mythos from real life. I am still learning how to edit video, but each video is better than the last. Soon I will have the skills needed to do these stories justice. 

If you're at all interested in mythology and/or you're familiar with the SMT series, feel free to give my videos a look!

My YouTube name is Storyteller Roderick.
