Games that werewolves play

If you get on the bad side of a werewolf, chances are they will want to play with you and tease you.  These games that werewolves play when there is a human that they dislike are meant to strike fear into the heart of that human. And they hardly ever miss their mark.  They toy with the human, using their advanced senses and skills to often drive the human to the brink of sanity. These type of “werewolf games” are more psychological than physical, but each technique is designed with the intent of putting a human on guard, confusing them, and even allowing them to create their own demise. That is not to say that werewolves spend any bulk...

werebear

A shape-shifting bear!? Yes, there is such a thing – it’s called a werebear! In fact, in myths and legends, the werebear is depicted as being more ferocious if attacked than a werewolf! Luckily, many legends say that the werebear typically keeps to himself. Similar to a werewolf, the werebear is a human that has shapeshifting abilities – but instead of transforming into a wolf (aka the werewolf) someone that is a werebear will transform from human into a bear! This transformation typically happens during the period of the full moon, when muscles thicken and hair grows all over the body of the afflicted individual. Although there are many legends of the werebear, one of the earliest references to...

Bloodsucking Zombies

I love zombies, but what exactly is a bloodsucking zombie? They confuse me. Part of it is, what exactly are they? Are they vampire zombies? And is that even a possibility of a thing that could exist – a vampire zombie? Zombies are already dead…and vampires are undead…could these two non-living creatures even be combined into one? And so let’s imagine for a minute that it is possible, that the bloodsucking zombie could even exist. I do not understand how they could ever originate. Vampires would never convert a zombie into one of their own kind – vampires are only interested in living blood, not dead blood. It would sicken them – like drinking sour milk. So maybe what...
