What is Olgaruth?
Olgaruth is a world of characters, places, currencies and storylines from the mind of artist Joshua Mays.
Olgaruth is a fictional city of tremendous science and cultural vision. The key character of the story is an awakened fungus who communicates effective consciousness by infecting a group of children. It’s been observing and watching for thousands of years and has ideas it wants to implement and activate within humanity. This story describes how this happens. Here we begin the story of the fungal sapience that makes itself known to several children one day on their way home from school. The children, alone, show some form of non-verbal autism, but when they are brought together they speak on behalf of the spor.
