Good evening, pixies and sprites!
I know I’ve been absent for a while now, but alas! Real life seems to suck the fun out of everything.
Due to the month of October being full of witches, vampires and general spookiness, the theme of this month’s Blog Carnival (hosted by Of Dice and Dragons ) is all about superstitions!
But, what about creatures which cause such rumors and fears to arise? Surely there is something at the route of a werewolf’s bite, the sounds in the night? And who better to push forward to see the truth then brave-hearted adventurers.
For this month’s contribution, I provide to thee a host of cryptid creatures who are sure to inspire superstitions of their own! Note: all of these are actual cryptoids, some more well-known then others but all frightening.
The Blackbird of Chernobyl/Mothman: A crpytid of humanoid shape, the Blackbird of Chernobyl and the Mothman are believed to be the same “species”, if one can call them as such. Regardless of where it is seen, whether it be a quiet West Virginia town or in the fallout of a nuclear power plant, whatever this species is haunts the nightmares of fans of cryptozoology all around the world.
The Jersey Devil: In the Pine Barrens of the state of New Jersey stalks a creature which has captured the imaginations and fears of the residents who have lived there. Such a monster has risen to its own sort of fame in the state, being New Jersey’s most well-known urban legend. But its mystery is just one thing which makes it frightening: encounters with it are even more so.
The Capitol Demon Cat: an urban legend specific to Washington D.C., the Capitol Demon Cat is a creature which only is seen and talked about during election season. It is seen as an omen of political unrest and madness. For its secrecy and shadowy ways though, it’s fangs can be felt: oftentimes, the passing of politicians are believed to be traced back to the rather unassuming black feline.
