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.

@inkpelt Hodags are a cryptid from Wisconsin.
@inkpelt A hodag is a cryptid from Wisconsin.
@orderedchaos interesting, not what I was guessing but cool, thanks.
@prairie indeed! I still don't know what it is. Time to google.
@inkpelt Google is your friend at times like these
@prairie Right, I need pictures of this beast.
@inkpelt http://cryptidz.wikia.com/wiki/Hodag Enjoy
@orderedchaos thanks. Makes you wonder how they fabricated the fake critter in the picture. Probably don't want to know.

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?
marner • 1 week ago
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.

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.
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
@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.
@skyfall4 lol yes predictions appear to be on the right track...
lunacharm1037 • 1 week ago
what is a jackalope?
@lunacharm1037 jackalopes are jack rabbits, but with deer/antalope horns.
Thanks, I love rabbits/bunnies idk about liking the antlers though

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

*cracks knuckles* Well, time to get writing.

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