This next one is the result of a deep dive into strange tales not of our time, but from the past.
Come with us as we take you on a journey back to the Rome of the Caesars, where, according to Roman lore, a wish-granting demon lived beneath the streets of Rome. Here we tell the tale of corpulent Invortus, a bestower of favor on pauper and emperor alike. Any who wished could have his wish granted by the Giver of Gifts.
But then be careful what you wish for, as the old adage goes.
We dig up the oldest tales of Invortus, going back to the very origins of Rome. And even today, there are tales of Invortus stalking the shadowy aisles of the Vatican Archives.
