    Never heard of the one they had for my state. Plenty of potential plot hooks, though.


    Currently Playing: A large, mixed splat game of CofD. As: Nobody. I'm between characters and haven't been able to get a new concept to stick.

    And can you hear the choir sing? For pale blood satellites, to watch the end of everything, on this longest night.

      South Carolina's Boo Hags can also be found here in coastal Georgia. Supposedly Calhoun Square here in Savannah is infested with them as a result of the square being named after a major slavery apologist while also being built on top of a mass slave grave, which understandably pissed off the restless ghosts of the slaves and lead to the land there "turning sour" as the Gullah put it.

          Disappointed in my state's legend, even if it did turn out to be sorta true. So we were the guys who started the tired and kinda sanist hookhanded deranged killer story? Laaaaaaaame

            In the case of Polybius, watch the special episode the (usually) fiction podcast The Truth did on it. If it was real, it was totally either a weird way to soften up people in some way before the GM turned them into Cryptid horrors or a trap by a True Fae looking for new playthings

                I have a book called Weird New York somewhere. I'll look through that when I find it

                  They Have one of those books for every state. They often have them in the reference section of the local library too. And here in Georgia we have everything from Emily isabella Burt, our states resident werewolf, to the Georgia guide stones which contain instructions for humanity to follow after a hypothetical apocalypse.

                      Favorites are Mel's Hole and the Nightcrawlers. The Bell Witch goes without saying because it's a classic

                        Here is a drawing I commissioned of her in werewolf form, based off an old photo of her I found on the internet

                            Quite a good-looking wolf, there.

                            Edit; As someone in Texas, let me leave a reminder here that the Alamo is said to be still standing because the ghosts of its defenders prevented the original demolition attempts.

                              Why? Did people try to bulldoze the Alamo?
