Tough Travels – Fathers


Each Thursday, inspired by ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland’ we have in hand, we shall tour the mystical countryside looking for adventure and fun (and tropes) from all over fantasy.

This week’s topic is FATHERS

Comes in two types in fantasyland.  Either a semi-mystical figure proving impossible to live up to or the overbearing type who doesn’t understand why his daughter doesn’t accept the traditional princess role.  He may be tough to get along with but usually does think he has his kids interests in mind.

I know y’all think I am never going to do a list again but you would be wrong.  I just spent too much time finalizing the topic list for the rest of the year.  Which I will be posting below to make the rest of you fine folk’s life easier.  I will continue to write little blurbs/explanations on a week to week basis but this should let people get a jump on the harder weeks if nothing else.  I will tag this on the main Tough Travels page as well.
