Supernatural curses have been a large part of storytelling for centuries, if not millennia. Many of us grew up on tales of curses because of Disney movies. They’re also present in tales like The Mummy and Pirates of the Caribbean. In each example, there is someone using supernatural forces to cause harm to another person or group of people.
History itself is also filled with tales of curses, from monks writing curses in books against anyone who may steal from the library, to the curses of ancient Egyptian tombs. Whether from history or fiction, there are common elements to all curses which you can use to add to your story. We talk about the variety of curses and their solution in this episode.
