The dolorifuge is a giant whirlpool which sucks its prey into an ever-tightening circle of self-pity and depression. Sailors beware! hello everybody!

Nobody has ever seen a huderon but its favorite place to seek victims are the basements of abandoned and decrepit houses. Its main weapon is to give off a gas that will eventually kill anyone attempting to reside in such a structure without paying the appropriate property taxes.

BTW, tsuwm, although I did find "huderon" through your "expiscate" utility, it was not in your main index...

A Gork is a particularly vicious wild pig with a curious green skin pigment around the ears, found mainly in the wilder regions of Siberia. It is not only vicious in a mean spirited way but is positively playful: its favourite tactic is to saunter past a hunting party, sprinting out of the way as the first hunter tries to leap upon his back. This has been known to continue until all the men are virtually exhausted. The only tactic proved to bring home the bacon is for groups of the women to throw themselves sacrificially in the wild animal’s path – hence the traditional tribal wisdom:

Never board a boar abroad afore four broads be floored.

interesting game, Spartann. but I must say I think that bucklesnort is a ringer.

I may have to collect these, for my collection.

p.s. to musick : huderon is nae in the word list due to the lag in getting recent words into said list.

p.p.s. : this reminds me of a nother lag, about which I'll post a question elsewhen.

*"bucklesnort* was my error because I had no idea what word list you were referencing. That's what happens when you try to play the game without understanding the rules. Someone most kind has directed me to the list, and I shall try to redeem myself below.*

Cautelous: Found exclusively in catacombs, the "cautelous" monster is an hourglass-shaped figure whose skin looks very
much like white lace and whose countenance appears tender but whose many arms, which initially appear to her prey to be gently beckoning, are actually capable of inflicting unrelenting heat that sears the skin and permanently
deadens the nerves of her victims.

In the interests of anyone else who might read this thread as a newcomer, and in gratuitous assistance of linkage to keep Mike Numero Uno with google's Al Gorythm, let me add the address here:

Did you ever think you heard or saw something moving at the bottom of the pit of an outhouse? Chances are it was a lanterloo. These snake-like creatures have no natural enemies... well, no real friends either. Their habitat provides plenty of... ahem... sustenance. Just be glad they have no arms to reach or legs with which to jump.

sowl

Zed, I know the feeling.

The lanterloo is an annoying but relatively harmless sprite akin to the Danish Nisseman which inhabits public washrooms especially of train stations. It lurks out of sight waiting to douse the lights just as one sits down. It is never seen but can be identified by the barely audible, high pitched snicker from above and behind your right shouder.



edit Rats, I type too slow and don't have time to do sowl. Maybe tomorrow.
