I will be in attendance at delta h con in houston, tx the weekend of july 12th. Hopefully i will have a new discovery documented and freshly preserved in time. As always, I look forward to your delightful presence in my company.
Today, before I got to enter the market area for apollocon I was able to get a little hunting done. Do not let its small size fool you it was indeed quite dangerous.
I and my wares will once more be gracing the dealers room of apollo con this coming up weekend. I will have a collection of delights.
Cacklers, called such due to their fiendish laughter, after commonly seen in the western and southern territories of the Texas empire.
Often seen in small packs of 3 to 15 with 1 breeding pair that oversee's their troop. The troop will often live by scavenging and hunting small rodents, egg stealing and as of late with western colonization begging.
Cacklers have little shame and even a smaller reserve courage and unless they feel they have an advantage he more bothersome then deadly. The exception of course is when they are hungry and have not been able to feed. Driven by hunger a troop is likely to seek as to obtain prey such as small children, household pets, and chickens. They often can pass as wild dogs to the untrained eye, unless they are walking up right, or using their
I have found that Boggarts are to brownies, as men are to women. They are loud, disruptive, and would not know the business end of a feather duster if their life was in peril.
While they do tend to share some physical characteristics with the common house brownie, make no mistake they are very dangerous to have about.
A hungry boggart has no issue eating your favorite pet, or child in the middle of the night, nor souring your cream.
the pelt of a spotted griffin can vary in color
The spotted pocket griffin, native to Galveston island was hunted to near extinction, due to the popularity of using it's pelt and flight feathers for additions to women’s fascinators and other fashion pieces worn out on social calls.
No bigger then a house cat, it's features share the classic features of it's large kin. The marking of this species can vary from a muted tawny on cream as on the griffin pictured, to dark rich spots on maze colored fur. They are also noted to have a bob tail which is common for the wild cats of the region.
Their beaks like most hook bill fowl darkens as it ages from a rich gold to black as it reaches adulthood, which is the only way to actually tell a spotted griffin's age as they reach their full size within weeks, but remain dependent of it's parents for nourishment for almost two years. It is not until the brood pair are ready to mate again do they kick their young out of the nest to fend for themselves. Even then the offspring might not leave the area or even the tree of their birth. This often causes there to be colonies of interrelated griffins.
It is a rare day when the image of a live brownie can be captured. They are in fact very camera shy.
However I was able to convince my house brownie to sit still long enough to capture this glimpse of him for my journal and musings.
I do plan to acquire several more of his species to
There has been a great deal of debate as of late between Dr. Steam and myself involving this creature that was discovered recently.
The Briar wolf as we have dubbed it until further study of its ecological nitch, tends to live the the shrubs and other ground cover that lines parks, gardens and other areas that have young children at play.
Like a domesticated canine this creature seeks out children to lure to play with it. Often making them late for diner and insuring that they return home in need of a bath.
Dr. Steam feels this is a "noble" creature and has taken to humanizing its social traits. While I find it is like any other Fae we have come upon and should be studied and preserved. It does not seem at this time to be a threat to the children it is attracted too and might prove useful if domesticated to serve in a nursery setting perhaps to fend off goblins that might try to brain a child in
