Sighisoara is in Romania. It is the latest medieval place from Romania.
It isn't related even a bit to minotaurs, in our mythology we didn't have minotaurs :).
Maybe you should try vampires.

Don't forget that this is a mere demo representation. The finished product will of course look quite different. And besides, HeroOfPunk has a mentor who acts as his instructor, advisor and editor in the great journey accross Sighisiora.
Don't worry if things are going badly today. They will be much worse tomorrow.

ciupeiu_dan said: in our mythology we didn't have minotaurs.

Well, minotaur was a single creature in one mythology, not an occurrence like fairies or dwarfs. It was a monster that resided in the island of Crete, Greece, under the city of Knossos, in the maze (the Labyrinth) that Daedalus engineered. Mind you that although Cretans of the Minoan era weren't Greek, this myth is attributed to Greek mythology and was created centuries after the fall of the Minoan Crete.

True, but it greek stories you could encounter minotaurs, in romanian stories you don't. What i suggested was that vampires would be a more suitable option for Sighisoara, but again this is only my suggestion.

In a way you are right. As i'm from Romania i say that we are known world wide for having Bran castle (Dracula's castle) but yet in our stories vampires are not encountered.
Creatures you do encounter in our mythology are : "balaur" = some kind of a dragon ; "urias" = giant ; "varcolaci" = werewolves ; "strigoi" = some kind of ghosts or specters ; "zmeu" = i guess some kind of orc ; "capcaun" = ogre ; "zane" = fairies ; and other creatures.

Zmeu is more like a shape shifting dragon... nowhere near an orc.

Zmeus are nowhere near dragons or orcs. Read the Enciclopedia Zmeilor by Mircea Cărtărescu, you'll see what I mean.

I rather read actual stories they're in... and they do turn into Balauri (which are 3 or 7 headed fined dragons... )

Well actually this continent has nothing to do with the romanian Sighisoara, Sighisoara is a continent and Aurolas is a nation in Sighisoara, and the main-inhabitants are acctually human. The minotaurs comes from a nation next to Aurolas named Gulael, it is like a land where anarchy rules :)
