I'm guessing either spikes, ugly creatures, or swamp things.

That last stage's right front leg looks swollen, ouch. Is the theme cryptids? Hodags are cryptids

jb092 • 1 week ago

Dinos + other animals? So in a way mythological hybrids....

inkpelt • 1 week ago

@prairie what the heck is a hodag? Where does that originate from? I think cryprids would be a cool theme.

Orderedchaos • 1 week ago

@inkpelt Hodags are a cryptid from Wisconsin.

prairie • 1 week ago

@inkpelt A hodag is a cryptid from Wisconsin.

inkpelt • 1 week ago

@orderedchaos interesting, not what I was guessing but cool, thanks.

inkpelt • 1 week ago

@prairie indeed! I still don't know what it is. Time to google.

prairie • 1 week ago

@inkpelt Google is your friend at times like these

inkpelt • 1 week ago

@prairie Right, I need pictures of this beast.

Orderedchaos • 1 week ago

@inkpelt http://cryptidz.wikia.com/wiki/Hodag Enjoy

inkpelt • 1 week ago

@orderedchaos thanks. Makes you wonder how they fabricated the fake critter in the picture. Probably don't want to know.

meeklydream • 1 week ago

I'm hoping it has something to do with Mythology.

murfijs • 1 week ago

maybe the theme is something like mythology,beast?

playermocha345 • 1 week ago

the Hodag?? itself looks like the character from Monster. Inc, Sulley was the name I believe? Am I wrong? https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/cryptidz/images/e/ee/Ame91l.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/400?cb=20140518235330

After looking into this Hodag, I think i need to take a trip to Wisconsin. He's kinda cute! The mythical beasts in my state are not as cool as he is! Now I'm really hoping they're these mythical beasts from all around the world!

sparklefox • 1 week ago

Ooh, looks like I'm going to enjoy the theme this year if I'm guessing right.

katrinwolf • 1 week ago

Definitely writing for this one, because I WANTS *_* There's something Jim Henson-esque about this beast, and also these "dunno-what-it-is" creatures are my personal favourites.

foxbit • 1 week ago

If the theme is cryptids, I want a Loch Ness creature I think that's my favorite.

*still wonders if the CRWs will be the seven deadly sins*

qerrats • 1 week ago

Swamp Creatures, Maybe?

scorch_cloud222 • 1 week ago

I hope they'll be cryptids.

solaris • 1 week ago

Ahh! I’m moving on Tuesday! I hope I’ll have wifi up and running before it ends.

dragonnn • 1 week ago

Need more cove space.

idol • 1 week ago

I like the mythology theme. Don't really like this creature though. T.T I agree with @Foxbit about it being cool if there is a loch ness monster creature though

lazyanon • 1 week ago

If it's really cryptids bigfoot is a must and maybe lizard people for NC? Of the flatnose monster.

skyfall4 • 1 week ago

I have a question @Ian - is the actual creature going to be called the Hodag?

whispers • 1 week ago

Huh :0 looks interesting. It would be cool if the theme was cryptids lol

iris1929578 • 1 week ago

Really hoping it’s mythology, now I want a Phoenix creature so bad

silvershadow • 1 week ago

@skyfall4 you know what, that would be awesome

skyfall4 • 1 week ago

@silvershadow That would be amazingggggg especially if it's the cryptids Then there's Loch Ness, Big Foot, maybe a Jackalope....

alice_meri_fox • 1 week ago

As a half a cheesehead with more than a foot in the Rilander area, I’m VERY excited for this creature if we are indeed calling it a Hodag. If, not that’s okay, but i’d Still be a bit disappointed.

silvershadow • 1 week ago

@skyfall4 lol yes predictions appear to be on the right track...

lunacharm1037 • 1 week ago

@skyfall4 what is a jackalope?

prairie • 1 week ago

@lunacharm1037 jackalopes are jack rabbits, but with deer/antalope horns.

lunacharm1037 • 1 week ago

@prairie Thanks, I love rabbits/bunnies idk about liking the antlers though

foxesthebest • 1 week ago

dinos

8-leggedfreak • 1 week ago

Maybe we can hope for a Wampus too

sybil_howlett • 1 week ago

@playermocha345 Sulley is based on a prehistoric giant ground sloth, look at http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/James_P._Sullivan look into the point trivia but you are right, the hodag and sloth look slightly alike

shadowy_overseer • 1 week ago

*cracks knuckles* Well, time to get writing.

jarofstars • 6 days ago

This one's a tie between weird and cute. Definitely one to look for.
