I am working on a new short story and I want it to be fantasy. I am tired of gnomes, elves, dwarves, and all the typical Tolkien, D&D style fantasy. I want to look into African, Native American, Indian, and South American fantasy, but where would I go. I want to know what there nymphs, dragons, and demons would be if that makes sense. If any here have links or know something about the cultures first hand please let me know. Nothing asian, (excluding India) norse or classical fantasy. I would prefer to not make up creatures because the next story I write I want to have some cultural basis in reality.
