Well, after Ben had shown the new greenhouse to Lily, the arcade had a visitor who'd recently traveled to Japan.

(Has anyone else noticed that both Nip & Tuck and Tales of the Questor show big donations from "this month" but Goblin Hollow shows $0?)

Either those two guys weren't involved in the shenanigan, or they're very good at looking innocent. Eesh.

Is this why the Posse is (are?) goblins? So they can prank Ben? They did more damage when they were trying to help him. Like Zoot calling half the phone book trying to get a date for Ben. Or the way the Tulpa posse went out to promote Goblin Hollow when it was new.
Hardly seems worth the work of a retcon.

Look again; they're pointing at each other.

"He did it!"
"It was YOUR idea!"
"Well I didn't think you'd DO it!"
"You dared me!"

P.S.: I wonder if werewolves exist in the GH universe. Of course, I don't mean the kind that turn into humans; since "werewolf" starts with a word that also spawned the term "virile", a furry "werebeast" would just become a more powerful version of his/her species.

I suppose that if it came to being confused as to what species it really was, you could call it a bewilderbeast?

And if it became a ghost, that would make the beastie airy (bestiary), wouldn't it? :wink:

Of course, in a furry world, you can get away with stealing the Bunnicula concept; a vampire rabbit that sucks out the juices of vegetables. (Although I still say Chester was overreacting; the celery does not stalk at midnight.) Of course, all he'd really need would be a Vita-Mix, and then nobody will ever know. :wink:

Now, in real-world mythologies, some creatures are re- or mis-interpretations of existing animals; for instance, a manticore was an early description of African lions (teeth and claws of iron = strong, sharp claws and teeth), while a harpy was a mangled description of a specific bird in Greece. And the dog-headed people of the Andaman Islands really are dog-headed.. in the medical sense of having a cranium that slopes back from the orbits, rather than rising to a dome.

Maybe, but if it were a bird, its home would be a beastie aerie.

I'm surprised you didn't mention platypuses.

As far as Bunnicula goes. I know Howe, he did it.

Thanks for those elaborations. I knew that the mythological salamander traced back to the way real salamanders literally come out of the woodwork when it catches fire. Now if I only knew how the idea of dragons got so widespread.... (turns around with wide eyes)

Actually, I just did an RP the other night with a friend of mine with characters just like that. They're anthros, but also werewolves, and have three forms:

1. Normal; look just like any other anthro.
2. Animal; looks like your normal wolf.
3. Brute; a sort of beefed up anthro.

:roll: Didn't expect someone else to have the same idea around the same time.
I'm lost. I've gone to find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait. Thanks.

Hey, that's the case in

Larry Niven's story "What Good is a Glass Dagger?" Werewolves are not humans who can turn into wolves. They're wolves (normal-looking "wolf" wolves, not anthro-like Lon Chaney Jr.) who can turn into humans.

The origin of dragon myths is a big question. Some suggest natural forces, such as comets, meteors, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Others imagine remnant dinosaurs or interpretations of fossils. Whatever the source, dragon-like creatures are described worldwide, including Europe, Asia, and both the Aztec (Quetzecouatl) and Amerind (Thunder Bird) cultures.

I can however posit an origin for gryphons. It seems somewhere around or east of the eastern Mediterranean there are dinosaur bone beds containing a particular four-legged beaked dino. These large skeletons were exposed in cliff faces due to erosion. Travellers saw these skeletons and imagination did the rest. (I got this from a History Channel show that also suggested other myths originating from discovery of fossils.)

Huh... that sounds a lot like how dragons are "born" in the Questorverse, at least according to the account of one priest found in the Beastiary... :D But then you'd know that if ya bought the Uber CD.
