How about a game in which a person posts a word from tsuwm's collection, and the next person posts a description of a monster so-named?

For example, person one posts "jeevesian", and person two says, "a cross between a penguin and a giraffe, having a tuxedo-like black-and-white coat and a tall, thin appearance; is generally not dangerous, but can attack when provoked by particularly bad fashion."

After posting the horrifying definition, post a word for the next person to define.

OK? Here's the first word to define:

A large fringed mollusc shaped like a tennis ball, which if attacked by a large enough fish will drop to the ocean floor and squirt a defensive ink in the manner of a squid.

A small, swamp-dwelling creature, about the size of a sparrow with batlike wings and a corkscrew proboscis. The nipperkin latches on to unwary passers-by and deposits its eggs on precisely that part of the back which they cannot reach to scratch.

Fid--a very small insect, (smaller than the .(dot/full stop) used in average newpaper). It lives in the deep woods, and is lives it entire life cycle in a single day. Its entire lifecylce is hatching, mating, laying eggs, and dying. the eggs are layed on plant material, they hatch, and eat the plant material, drop to ground as larva, and spend the next 364 days, burrows.

What make the Fid dangerous, is, it swarms, and will attack living thing for protein for its eggs. Their saliva has a potent nerve toxin, (to help immobilize the prey.)

Caught in a swarm, a human adult can be immobiled in second, and dead with in 15 minutes.
Fids can be found temperate forest of south america. several colonies of fid have been found in NA, and authorities are worried that the animal might be now making its home here.

The next time you see a swarm of nosee'um, it might actualy be a swarm of fids.

A cousin to the cave troll, this tall, skinny humanoid has long powerful fingers and hides in the cracks of the cave walls searching for anything that moves. It ususally ends up eating worms and insects but is known to kill anything by strangulation or just squeezing it to death.

a creature whose deadly sting is an unexpected result of succumbing to the temptation to pet and cuddle this diminutive, flop-eared, frollicking bundle of tousled fur, resembling a yellow and black striped version of the Maltese breed of canine.

The bucklesnort is so-named from its apparent habit of inhaling belt buckles. In reality, it is ingesting everything metal within reach of its elongated proboscis.

If the fid chews, beware it.
