The Gobbletor

The freakish monstrosity that would be known as the Gobbletor began as an experiment by a less than ethical turkey farm to increase profits. Plucked and dressed turkeys were exposed to exotic forms of radiation that increased their size. Soon six foot drumsticks and fifteen foot turkey breasts were produced. However when one of the drumsticks was cooked strange mutations began to occur, and the Gobbletor was born. It quickly escaped from the lab, leaving a trail of carnage in it's wake, and has since gone on to become an urban legend. Gobbletor is frequently sighted in remote wooded areas, and is currently the subject of several documentaries.

Designer Rex

After the Phollywog debacle, the Toywerks toy company found itself on the edge of destitution. The decision was made to put nearly all of the remaining capital into another designer pet initiative. Thus was born the Designer Rex, a miniature dinosaur created from cloned T-Rex DNA. The creature was genetically manipulated to severely stunt the growth cycle, trapping the T-Rex in a juvenile, midget-like state. However, this did nothing to prevent the creature's natural hunting tendencies. The Designer Rex was initially a huge success, however a large public outcry following the severe mauling deaths of several children lead to their eventual outlawing. Designer Rex is still sold overseas, and to various companies to be used as guard dogs.

BugBears were original creatures in European myth, similar to Brownies, Nixies, Hobgoblins, and other forest creatures. BugBears were envisioned as large, hairy monsters that would abduct naughty children. In modern fantasy fiction, they have become a race of larger, stronger, deadlier Goblins, usually acting as the "boss" of a group of weaker troops, and beholden to a superior (evil) power.

In the folklore of various cultures in South America, a Duende is a Gnome-like house spirit, who lives within the walls and under the floors. They are known for pulling various pranks, as well as clipping the toenails of children (sometimes accidentally the entire toe.)

Throughout 2008 in Argentina there have been several sightings of a shadowy, side-stepping, creepy dwarf with a pointed hat, including several videos. Is the Duende real, or is it merely a prankster reaching for 15 minutes of internet fame? Who can really say.

Squoonks are named so because of their mating call, which takes the form of a very loud "SQUOOONK!" Although they originally came from a primitive, jungle dwelling society on an under developed planet, Squoonks have adapted to technological life quite well. They tend to employ themselves as artists, musicians, interpretive dancers, and game designers. They have the vocal inflection to speak most human languages, but have a tendency to interject random exclamations of "Squoonk" into their speech patterns.

The Penanggalan is a variation of the Vampire from Malay. During the day they appear as normal people, but at night the head will detach (with trailing entrails) and fly about seeking victims. The Penanggalan usually chooses newborn mothers and small children to prey upon - when a child is born the creature uses an abnormally long tongue to lap up blood from the mother. The victims of the Penanggalan usually die of strange diseases, and become Penanggalan themselves.

This creature is called by many different names in surrounding countries:

Indonesia: Leak
Thailand: Krasue
Cambodia: Arb

Unlike these similar creatures, the Penanggalan is always female.

Carrion Grub

Carrion Grubs are large, vicious, slow moving worm-like creatures which do nothing but eat and breed. They have extremely poor eyesight, and navigate through smell and vibration. Although they start out in a tiny larval state there seems to be no limit to the actual size they can achieve, specimens in the wild have been observed over 30 feet in length. At such a large size their diet tends to subsist on carrion (hence the name, ) or other large game. It has been theorized that they are merely the larval state of another different, larger form which has not yet been observed in nature.

A Fairy is a type of primordial nature spirit, usually connected to forests or woodlands. The term refers to many different types of supernatural entity (brownies, pixies, nixies, goblins, trolls, etc.) as well as with anything to do with the supernatural realm, i.e. "the Land of fey," or "Morgan Le Fay." In western European belief they originated either as fallen angels or as a distinct species all their own. Much of mythology has to deal with how one avoids fairy mischief, such as charms to keep them away, prevent them from stealing babies, etc.
