      It was called mythology and folklore, most of which Tolkien the hack ripped off.

        Tolkien intended for LOTR to serve as a substitute for the lacking british mythology, not a reason for incels and naggers to lock themselves into their rooms to larp as kneesock elves on onlyfans.
        He was a catholic, not a D&D-playing schizo-israelite.

          >their mythology is a patchwork of actual mythologies "borrowed" from other countries
          Tolkien is the British museum of literature.

            Britain IS a patchwork of peoples from surrounding countries.
            Their mythology WOULD HAVE BEEN a patchwork if their people weren't too preoccupied with colonizing the world and bringing about industrialization.
            It's not borrowed when your people literally are anglo-saxons, and the source is gathered from the homelands of anglos and saxons.
            You are a dimwit.
            Popculture is a cancer upon history and mythology. Tolkien was not meant as media, but nostalgia.

              That's a lot of cope for a lack of culture, Nigel.

                Anglos and saxons =/= anglo-saxons.
                Scandi myth inherently includes snippets of nordic and baltic myth, tolkien just chose to use more of it.

                One is derived from the other.

                They're all derived from Indo-European, doesn't mean Greek is the same as Norwegian.

        Lovecraft was horror, and while Barsoom was isekai setting it on Mars makes it hard to think of as fantasy.
        Conan was legit fantasy though, although I prefer LOTR and its imitators.

    What are good modern fantasy series inspired by ancient Greek, Roman, Persian, Hebrew, Egyptian, Sumerian, Babylonian, Phoenician, Arabian, Indian, Dravidian, Chinese, Balto-Slavic, Celtic, Finnish, Basque and other pre-Indo-Europeans, and even ancient Germanic culture (independently of the many post-Tolkien's derivations)?

    Nah, the damage is negligible. If you really want to see a good story fuck up it's medium of choice you read watchmen and then see the unintended consequences the story had on the (cape) comic book landscape.

    Why don't you blame the shit-eaters who tried to hop on the fantasy wagon despite having no talent rather than a seminal and well-respected titanic work of art of imagination and fiction?
