  2. 2. CLARFIYING DEFINITIONS
  3. 3. Merriam-Webster Definition1. A creature of abnormal form or structure2. One who deviates from normal or acceptable behaviour or character3. A threatening force4. One that is highly successful
  4. 4. How do you tame it?1. Stab it through the heart with a knife  Outcome. DEATH (unless it’s a vampire, in which case you need a wooden stake)2. Put some fresh cassava leaves in its supper  Outcome. DEATH3. Infect it with a nasty chronic disease (preferably a virus)  Outcome. WEAKNESS4. Be extra nice to it (and hope it reciprocates the favour)  Outcome. UNAFFECTED
  5. 5. Effect of Taming Strategies on Outcomes for Monsters and HumansTaming Strategy Also Called Who Wins? 1 (Murder) Eradication Humans 2 (Infection) Mitigation Mainly humans 3 (Friendship) Co-existence Mainly monsters 4 (Chasing) Chasing Monsters Humans
