The Aranarchix is a large, scaled beast mutated from a breed of ground dwelling insect. The creatures are capable of consuming prey twice it's size. Powerful leg muscles allow the Aranarchix to leap dozens of feet into the air. True to their insect evolution they will often live in colonies, which have been known to migrate according to weather patterns and attack human settlements. Programs to exterminate the Aranarchix have so far been unsuccessful, as their breeding rates keep populations high.

The Thing Under the Bed

As a child, I was never really afraid of monsters under the bed.

I was more afraid of aliens.

The Countess of Blood

Ezliabeth Bathory was a Hungarian Countess, who is alleged to have tortured and killed over six hundred victims, the majority of which were young peasant girls. Legends arose of vampiric behavior, such as her drinking and bathing in the blood of young virgins to retain her youth.

By 1610 when Bathory began to prey upon the daughters of lesser nobility public outcry became so great that she was finally apprehended. Her four servants were brutally tortured, imprisoned, and executed (including having their fingers ripped off, beheaded, then burned at the stake.) As a member of the nobility Elizabeth herself escaped execution, but spent the last four years of her life walled up in a set of rooms, with no human contact, until she finally died. Local legend maintains she arose as a vampire after her death.

Skiziquitz are sentient worm-like creatures which live in large hollowed-out underground complexes. They are quite intelligent, and have developed an advanced society with a very complicated caste system. As they share their planet with several other aggressive sentient species, the Skiziquitz prefer to remain isolated when possible. The word "Skiziquitz" in their language means "The long ones."

Krampus is a sort of anti-Saint Nicholas, who instead of rewarding good children with gifts and sweets, punishes the naughty children on Christmas. He is traditionally depicted as an evil, horned demonic figure, manacled with rusty chains and carrying a switch made from dried twigs to administer beatings. In many alpine countries young men dress up as Krampus to scare little children.

The Quazzaim are a race of highly intelligent creatures with very advanced psonic abilities. They come from a planet with very low gravity, and float via a means of a form of telekinesis. The mental demands this power places upon them increases with stronger gravity, thus they are often seen off planet wearing a type of gravity harness. The Quazzaim are pacifist scientists and philosophers for the most part, and tend to mind their own business.

Brain Lords

Brain Lords are humans who have used to genetic engineering over generations to yield larger and larger brain sizes. The result of their hideously large gray matter is a super genius level intellect along with the acquisition of several different psychic powers, such as telekinesis, psychokinesis, telepathy, precognition, and so on. Brain Lords often become megalomaniacal in their thirst for power.

The Fiklabb is a strange mutant hybrid between a type of ancient shark and giant Alaskan king crab. The creatures are a result of mutations from illegal toxic waste dumping off the coast of Alaska by private energy companies in collusion with a corrupt governor looking to develop Alaska's protected coastal wildlife areas. Fiklabbs are now blamed for dozens of deaths per year, as the huge claws seem perfectly adapted at plucking the stray fisherman or passenger off of passing watercraft.

Ichloogies are creatures evolved from colonies of bacteria. Their very simple, skeptical skeletal and organ structures are covered in a shifting layer of mucus which allow the Ichloogie to change it's shape. They are able to grow any number of limbs, tentacles, etc, as well as squeeze thorough small openings. Ichloogies are considered "disgusting" by many other races and generally tend to be social outcasts when not among their own kind.

Spring Heeled Jack

Spring Heeled Jack seems to be an early prototype for a supervillain. He's described in reports from the 1840s onward as a man wearing a suit made of oil skin with some kind of armor or metal corset, depicted in artwork of the time as resembling a rib-cage. The reports give him various supervillian powers, such as leaping over tall walls and buildings, breathing fire, possessing glowing red eyes, or disappearing into thin air. Yet despite his horrid appearance and supernatural abilities, and his multiple attacks on dozens of people over sixty years, Spring Heeled Jack has never actually killed anyone.

Lhamperites are holdovers from the Cambrian age, recently discovered in a secluded underground lake. They are a form of life seemingly unrelated to any other. Lhamperites start out at a microscopic size but have been observed to grow to more than 12 feet in length. Despite measures taken to quarantine the dangerous creatures several sightings of Lhamperites have already been reported in the wild.

Turtle Slug

Turtle Slugs are scientific chimeras, genetically engineered by the Cristix corporation for the designer pet market. Although they were significant sellers, they soon lost popularity as most children found them slow moving and "boring."

The Luscuobocca are skiddish, energetic creatures which live in short burrows among the forest floor. Individually the creatures are rather harmless, as they never grow more than 22 cm from tip to tail. They have been observed hunting in large parties of 40 or more, easily taking down and devouring prey many times their size.

Bump Snake

Bump Snakes are so called because of the large amounts of small, strange bumps which cover the creature's back. These bumps are actually part of the Bump Snake's reproductive process. As a species they are genderless, at the appointed time the small bumps develop into larger "pods," which then break off and float away in the wind, each to develop into a juvenile Bump Snake. This method of reproduction has allowed the species to cover a large portion of it's native planet.

The Phibbilexes are a race descended from soft-bodied insects. They live in giant hive like constructs, in highly ordered societies. Each member is born into a caste which they live the entirety of their short lives. The whole is ruled by a "queen" who is specifically evolved for breeding purposes, though the members of the lower castes do enter into non-reproductive social relationships.

The Phibbilexes have one of the most complex languages ever discovered.

Skull Flower

Skull Flowers are in fact animals that have adapted a bright, flower-like head crest in order to attract prey. They are so named because of their large skull-like grin. Skull Flowers hunt by disguising themselves as ordinary (if not large) flowers, then grasp prey with their front forelimbs.

Duck Billed Tentacle Raptor

The elusive Duck Billed Tentacle Raptor is a rare creature indeed. The only evidence for the creature's existence is a blurry, shaky, badly edited youtube video shot by a former drug addict with a stolen cell phone. In the video the creature seems to have a strange metal strip running along it's back ridge plates and an oddly clumsy gait.

Is the Duck Billed Tentacle Raptor real? We may never know.

Gibblambu are strange, energetic, mindless eating machines. They begin as small larva, indistinguishable from ordinary harmless caterpillars. They then enter a seven year long pupate stage, where the creature's mass increases by 500%. After hatching the resulting monstrosity is capable of eating double it's body weight every hour. The creatures embark on an orgy of untold destruction, after which mating is accomplished and all adults promptly die off. Swarms of Gibblambu follow the seven year breeding cycle, which cause untold ecological damage.
