Day 15, Cthulhu

Day 15, and my last day before @torstenvblog takes over, and my pick is the cosmic entity known as Cthulhu. Created by H.P. Lovecraft, Cthulhu is a leader of a race of beings known simply as the Old Ones that came to Earth from beyond the skies well before humanity came about. Enjoy this short video below, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Day 13, Wyverns

Hello! I’m SaviorGaming’s daughter, LittleSavior! It was his idea for the name, blame him. 

Wyverns are often confused with regular dragons, however, they differ in some ways. Whilst both parties have wings, wyverns’ wings are attached to their arms, instead of them just free-forming like a wart on a foot. This is where you’re supposed to laugh, by the way. You yourself may have seen them in movies, TV shows, and even video games, but always thought they were just dragons. But guess what; you were incorrect. Wyverns’ distinctive wings attached to their arms is possibly the easiest way to tell them & dragons apart.

Now, onto my favorite part; the mythology!

In the Middle Ages, wyverns were associated with the devil and represented sin, pestilence, & war. Of course, the wyvern had many other associations! In the sixteenth century, wyverns were symbolic of courage, envy, war, might, & strength. Fun fact, Leonardo Da Vinci claims to have seen an encounter between a wyvern & a lion, however, there is no hard evidence, so who really knows? Some say they are vicious creatures, whose breath causes pestilence & disease. Meanwhile, some say they are gentle creatures, who cares about nature & will pass their wisdom onto those they meet. Their breath, in accordance to this, is also said to lead to inspiration.

Now, their powers they’re said to possess!

Besides their breath leading to either death or to pushing you to finish that chapter (I really should finish writing that), they have other powers! Shocking, I know; they have fooled us again! Me attempting to be funny aside let’s move on. Much like dragons, these creatures are excellent flyers (they better be), and have many of the same powers in general. They also really like treasure, however, I don’t quite know if that counts as a power; though according to rich white men, it does. It’s unknown if they can breathe fire, however, some say they have little ‘spoofs’ o fire, just enough to burn down your straw hut.

Oh, by the way, they’ll steal your spoon you got for 50 cents from your creepy neighbor; you know, the one with the 10 cameleons? Seriously? Who has 10 cameleons?! I love the buggers, but jeez. I can hardly deal with my baby sister! She counts as an animal, right?

Day 12, Slimes

Honestly, I have no clue where these things came from. You can find them everywhere, from things like  Dungeons and Dragons to Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. They are also sometimes called Ooze. I assume they come from Japan really because most things like this seem to. They have even made their way into movies. That is why they made this list for me, not because they are all around great but because they simply are into everything. So enjoy some examples, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Day 10, Bahamut

Bahamut is very odd in the sense of depending on where you are looking at it from it changes. For example, if you are Playing final fantasy it is a huge dragon, but in Hebrew lore, he is more of a giant fish. He is kind of all over the place and has a bunch of different names, tho as a gamer I love the Final Fantasy version. So enjoy the evolution of Bahamut and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Day 9, Grendel

Grendel is a descendant of the Biblical Cain, the world’s first murderer that killed his brother Abel over God choosing his offering over his brothers. Originally appearing in the epic poem  Beowolf. He is considered evil and cursed by God to never be happy.

The interesting thing about Grendel tho is how his actual description is actually debated since in the original poem he isn’t described really tho he is thought to be human-like. Since than Grendel has appeared in other stories, video games and even movies. Grendel is proof that sometimes you can create something and never know how far it will go. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
