Sidenote: New Eden will need a special section since it is mostly unexplored and filled with creatures from other dimensions (the Graughs, O' Defensor).

After which, I'm going to post the Menagerie of the Un, Sub, and Supernatural. The name of which is a reference to a play I like. Ten points to who guesses which.

An Entry includes a description of where our beastie originates from (geographically or like what makes them. Monster Snowmen come about when demons possess snow or something.) They will also include a physical description of the beastie. How big is it? What is it made of if anything other than flesh? Et Cetera. There are probably going to be categories, but I really can't imagine how I could possibly categorize
So to recap. Where they're from and where you'll encounter them, What they look like and are made of, How to Kill Them, How They Kill You, How likely they are to try to kill you.
Stockholm is by his nature a rambling author so he may include other titbits about the beasts he encounters, but he is very sure to know those things in particular. This book has been compiled mainly so that the natural world can know what it is up against.
Anecdotes: Much of Stockholm's time compiling his encyclopedia was spent collecting anecdotes from people on the beasts that they encountered. Stockholm believes all of these anecdotes to be true. He's not dumb, but he's not infallible either. Anecdotes can be as long or short as you want. I think I may make a separate thread to have anecdotes. Your anecdotes may have any main character you want. They just have to include your monster. Every Anecdote Is Linked To An Entry - it would be stupid for Stockholm to include an anecdote about a beast that is not actually in his encyclopedia. Not every entry has an anecdote.
After I do the intros, the Wendigo write-up and anecdote (different from Karla's sheet) then everyone can jump in! Also, give me feedback on the framework because I want this to be a fun game for all of us. Also! Contribute to the similar framework that Ivan set up with The Pragmatist. That shit is awesome and seriously, you can build a weapon and then have it unexplained in a later character. That is so cool.
