As a Christian Adventurer there are many types of beasts you will probably encounter on your journeys. Here is a list of what you may encounter and where you are likely to find them.
Bears are one of the most common problems when hiking, camping or doing something out doors. Their is a spray you can buy that will repair them and be sure to do your cooking away from your sleeping area and store your food away as well someplace hard for them to reach. If one does wander into your area banging some pots or pans together will frighten them away. Just stay a safe distance away. They sell some repellent spray that is meant to drive them away. Do not climb trees to get away from them. Many can climb up after you and then you are stuck and can’t get away. (especially if it is a drop bear)
One trick you can try if one seems aggressive and you have no pots or loud clangy things. Look as big as possible. If you have a shirt or jacket spread it out behind your head and shoulders. They don’t get the concept of separate clothing and such. Have a friend sit on your shoulders and wave your arms about. They might decide not to tangle with some weird two headed four armed creature.
You can tell the difference between a grizzly and a black bear by their ears. Grizzly have stubby round ears and protruding shoulders and an upturned snout. Black bear have tall pointed ears and flash shoulders.

Mama bears are very dangerous. When their young are around they will be much more aggressive and territorial. If you see any young cubs it is best to flee the area rather safe than sorry.
Drop Bear/9/8/4/<3 ❤ ❤
The drop bear is a folk lore creature mostly known in Australia. It is a bloodthirsty bear that will drop on unsuspecting prey from the trees. Which is why it has a higher mind level.
Canines There are a number of large dog breeds that can cause you trouble. Wolves are one of the most common predators in the woods and grass lands. They can come in all shapes and sizes. Alone one may not be much of a threat, but they tend to be pack animals and travel in large groups. Get several together and you are out matched easily.
Coyotes are typically smarter and tend to travel more isolated than wolves.
Wild dogs are your more modern cousins. Domestic dogs that have gone wild for whatever the reason. You will find them usually in modern cities and near people. Either in few numbers or large packs. Near run down areas like junk yards or even illegal dog fights. Hybrids are a rare, and unproven breed. Many who have reported chickens or livestock being killed and unable to find the cause have found the remains of some form of dog that has been unidentified. It is possible that these are some kind of hybrid between modern dogs and their wolf cousins. The results would be unpredictable.
Hybrid/?/?/?/? (roll the dice for this)
Big cats(and skunk. Flip a coin to see if it sprays you)
Big dogs are not the only thing you have to watch out for in the woods, big cats are more dangerous by far. They got claws as well as teeth. They tend to be more isolated. You wont find these snobs traveling in packs. However one is just as dangerous as a pack of wolves.

Snakes flip a coin to see if they poison you
Snakes are one of those animals that you are either terrified of of not scared of at all. Whether you are afraid or not you should still be cautious of them. Many are poisonous and tend to be far from help when encountered. They usually are hard to spot. Many will be right on top of them before you see them. You should know the dangerous types in you area or the are you plan to be in. Most people have heard of the common snakes listed here. The fierce creatures listed are the hoop snake and the sneaky snake. The hoop snake is a legendary snake that puts it;s tail in it’s mouth and rolls like a hoop to chase you. It is said that it has a poisonous tail that it will stab you with. The sneaky snake comes from tom t hall’s song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MchhtofbgJI

Insects are a serious problem in the wilderness. You can’t seem to ever get them under control. You can try candles, spray, and other gimmicks, but they never seem to work that well. Mosquitoes are the worst. Those itchy little vampires. Others are really only dangerous in large numbers. My dad once drove through an area that was covered with swarming locus. They were so thick you couldn’t see. Flies are a similar nuisance. Bees are the real problem in the woods. They wont bother you unless provoked, but when they do run. Don’t jump in the water that is a myth. They will wait for you. Cover your head and face with a coat or shirt or something. Better the stings be on your back and lower half of your body than in your face and ears. Scorpions. The bigger the better. The big ones are not poisonous. It is the little ones that are dangerous.
Insects flip a coin to see if they poison you.
Cryptids Are those mysterious (probably non existent) creatures we like to fantasize about.
Just about every region has some stories. Just about all have a Bigfoot story. The legend of the Sasquatch is one that is very popular and pretty much everyone knows what one is. Some refer to them as the forest people. Many have seen glimpses of them and many have hoaxed them, But no one has every found proof of them. So many people have had experiences that it makes you wonder if they exist. They are rumored to be over 8 foot tall and weigh over 600 pounds. They are described as ape like and covered in hair. Usually a bad smell such as rotten eggs or something similar whenever they are near giving them the nickname of Skunk-ape. Although described with different features and different names there are legends of them in every country and on every continent. In North America they are called bigfoot, Sasquatch, and the Forest People (people of the forest). The most common is the brown furred in North America, but there have been sightings of a black shaggy beast, An Orange-ish red haired beast that is shorter than any other sighted about 4 to 5 foot tall. And the white yeti that lives in cold climates.
Many seem to think that they might have a system of communication based on knocking and loud whoops. Some think that they might have some level of mystic abilities such as psychic abilities to sense people at a distance to avoid people as well as they do or the ability to mentally hide themselves.

Other cryptids you should be aware of. The deadly jackalope. It is basically a bunny with antlers. Don’t sell it short though. Bunnies can be deadly just watch Monty Python’s the Holy grail. The chupacabra is one of those weird little things that gets a lot of different descriptions about it. Many describe it as a canine but others more like a little imp creature. For this I am using the most modern version the canine.

River and a water cryptids. There are a number of water types out there. Nessie is probably the most well known. She is some what of a dinosaur in modern times. Knows to live in Lock Ness Scotland. She has become so well known that all similar creatures are know called nessies as a general term. The kraken is the term for large squid like creatures. Bigger than the ordinary giant squids and more than twice as aggressive. They wrap themselves around ships and drag people to their watery doom. Those however live either in large bodies of water or the ocean. There are a few you can find in the rivers as well. The river variety tend to be large serpents. Giant snakes with long bodies. There are also rumors of giant catfish that can bite a man in two. Then there re the more comical fish. The hairy trout. It is said that a hair tonic salesman lost his whole supplies into the river and the trout there sprouted furry coats. Lastly the little pee fish. It is a rumor that if you (men) pee into the water where these fish are found they will swim up the pee stream and jump out in an ark back to the water. (also rumors they will swim into your member and get stuck there)

Fiends are those you will find everywhere. They aren’t wild animals, they are humans. Bad ones. The kind that prey on people. In many ways they are worse than anything you might find in the woods. They seem to live for hurting others. They have a human intelligence, so they are much more crafty and dangerous. They can be as harmless as the Grump and his female equivalent the Prune. Basically your grumpy old man. You know The “get off my lawn!” types. Although can be dangerous to women if they are the lecherous dirty old man types, but in general not all dangerous and neither is the Prune, the crotchety old woman who is disgusted by all the things young people do these days.
Thugs Then there are the really dangerous types, the thugs and predators. Thugs are mindless sheep following a leader. Your basic bullies. If their leader falls they will usually disperse and flee. They are usually strong though as muscle bound oxes are. The predators though are the usually leaders of the sheep. They are not as physically strong, but they are smart and manipulative and smart can be more dangerous then strong. Especially when they have thugs they can control.
Predators come in various forms. There are the sociopaths that manipulate on a small scale for their own needs. Then there are the cult leaders that are charismatic enough to gain large followers. Usually under the guise of religious efforts. They claim to offer freedom, but usually under restrictive rules and limited contact to others and separation from their families.

Sub-Humans Are humans that have become separated from their humanity. By whatever means they have become recluse. They no longer have the compatibilities of modern man and become more animal and feral. This is your basic, raised by wolves situation, a human that is now more animal than man. The cannibalistic wendigo is a good example. Humans that have separated themselves from others and descended into madness. There are plenty of stories of people who went out on an expedition and got stranded with no way of getting help. So in order to survive they resorted to eating their dead. There are a lot of stories of how this changes people and turns them into monsters. This is why the subject is so taboo. Usually the subject gains superior strength, and speed. Sometimes even supernatural abilities. The Native Americans call them the wendigo a creature of the woods that attacks from above out of the trees. The Vine man is a creature who lives in the swamps and is covered in moss and vines. Usually has a small territory. Bog hag is a female version of this creature. The Boo hag, grave hag, is a sub human creature that lives in cemeteries and sneaks into peoples homes and sits on their chest while they sleep. May also kidnap children and anyone who wanders to close to her cemetery. Very territorial and nests can be recognized by the collection of skulls arranged around their beds. Flee at the sound of hymns and religious chanting. The Reaver is a creature few like to discuss. It is a creature that satisfies another basic human need. It is a creature that rapes it’s victims before consuming them.

Demi-Vamps Are those nocturnal creatures, usually teens or those who never grew out of them. They went so far into the goth persona that they wanted to make it real. They built into this culture so much that they took to drinking real blood. not healthy to do. The have deluded themselves into believing this identity and can become dangerous if it becomes threatened. Deal with them cautiously. Similar to the thugs and predators there will be one or few leaders and the rest will follow them to any degree.

Undead There are basically two types of undead. There is the bodies without a spirit, your basic zombies, vampires, ect, and the Spirit without a body, ghosts, demons, ect. There are those rare hybrids, of undead bodies, with a spirit attached though.
To start the zombies. Any reanimated body is a zomie. Technically. There is a lot of debate on the subject, but this is a general rule of thumb. So, yes, mummies (although they are there own thing) are zombies too. They come in many varieties, but you can boil it down to this. How they are reanimated. They are reanimated by a virus, like the walking dead, or they are reanimated by science like the Frankenstein monster. There is a difference here. The virus will keep them active even if dismembered. The Frankenstein monster has working organs (sort of) The heart beats and brain sort of functions on a basic level. So they are very different. Most zombies are mindless creatures, (although Izombie series is changing that) They are easy to avoid.
The other for is the kind reanimated by mysticism. Either in a small number or a large hoard. Usually the large numbers are chaotic and without purpose except for destructive. The smaller number, or usually individual like with voodoo. They are reanimated for a purpose like revenge or servitude. Can be turned against their summoner usually. The way of dealing with them, varies in effectiveness. Usually destroying the head or brain works. For virals this is the only method, For mysticism you can disrupt the magic reanimating them. This is best when dealing with large numbers.
Spirits are that energy part of us that live on after we die. No on really know that much, although many will claim to. What it actually is and how it works has been a mystery from the beginning of time. If they were once human we call them ghosts, if they were not human we call them spirits. If they seem benevolent we call them angels, if they are not we call them demons. Human spirits can be demonic as well, if the were truly evil in life or have shared their soul with a demon, after they pass on they can, but not always, become a sort of lesser demon.
So what is a ghost? A ghost is the soul and spirit of someone who was once alive and is not anymore. When the spirit hangs around after death and does not in habit a body, we call them ghosts. The difference of what we call a ghost and what we call a spirit is that a ghost is earthbound and remains here on this plane where a spirit has moved on to a new plane, but can return to this one for whatever the reason, but does not remain on this plane. However all ghosts are spirits, but not all spirits are ghosts.
There are several different types of ghosts and spirits. Ghosts are not dangerous like you see on tv. Ghosts are not that powerful and are limited to what they can do. Mostly they do very simple things like move keys or make noises. Usually annoying things or pranks, but can’t lift heavy objects or do any real harm. That is only in the movies. Spirits that can do harm are referred to as demons or demonic. Human spirits may be able to become demonic if they attached themselves to demons while alive or became very corrupt while in life.
The presence of a ghost is usually accompanied by cold spots or a drop in temperature in a location if it spirit is a strong one, and possibly the interference of electrical devices such as flickering lights and spinning of a compass. A strong spirit can cause a car to stall out. One might see strange lights or something in their peripheral vision. Certain smell like the lingering scent of ozone after a haunting or a strong ghost might have the scent of something they were closely associated with. Such as tobacco or a certain perfume.
A friend of mine lives in a home that might be haunted. She has felt a strange presence in her home when no one is around. She has smelled apple wood tobacco in her home very strong at times and noone in her home smokes at all. She has also heard doors opening and closing, as well as the sound of footsteps when no one is around.
She has also seen a phantom bird flying around her home. She does have birds, but whenever she sees it she immediately goes and counts them and finds that none are missing.
Her roommate has seen shadow people some standing around his bed when he wakes up.
When she lived in Oregon she was walking home from work at a hotel and encountered something along the path she walked. It was a spirit that flew by her and paused and looked at her face to face before flying off again.
Here is a simple rule of definition. An apparition is a non intelligent ghost sighting. A specter is a ghost that seems to interact and have intelligence. Phantom hitchhiker types, A wraith is an intelligent seemingly dangerous ghost.
Orbs (ghost lights) Are among the simplest. They are what they sound like. Either an orb of light or orbs multiple. With seemingly no cause. they may float in one place or move about. Many people photograph them, but there are so many things that can cause them in photos that they are commonly dismissed.
Mist or (spook Mist) Similar to orbs. Just a mist out of no where. May move in suddenly and move out just a suddenly. Will be small and cover only a small section of an area. Thought to be caused by a ghosts change in temperature in the area.
Apparitions is a visual figure of the person they were in life. Apparitions are usually transparent and hard to see although most can see features like old clothes and faces.
Historical apparitions are a type of non intelligent ghosts. Usually seen in multiple locations and are just going about their business as usual. Even if the location has changed in appearance or buildings torn down. This is more like a ripple of energy in the area that has stirred up an image of a different time. They can’t be interacted with and will not acknowledge if someone is there. Battle fields are where most of these are seen as well as old hospitals and asylums.
These are ghosts that have been caught on film. They usually appear in the background of someone’s pictures. They may be physical person or a blur of mist or strange light. Hard to tell with the latter two. The most commonly seen photo apparitions are orbs, however so many things can cause this it is hard to say if it is a ghost or not and are often not counted thee days due to sensitivity of modern technology.
Marian apparitions This is the religious encounter of the Virgin Mary. Tis can cover cameo apparitions seen in objects or in visions. This is also covered by visions of other saints and other religious figures. Both intelligent encounters (speaking with) and visual.
Recurring apparitions These ghosts usually appear at a certain time, or location most often on the anniversary of their death.
Family visitations These are ghosts that usually appear to a certain family member for some reason. Either to be reassuring or as a warning of some kind.
Atmospheric This is a type of ghost or haunting that is not exactly specific. Like ghost lights or loud sounds that can’t be pinned down to a location or source. A mist that seems to move on it’s own accord.
Intelligent haunting This is where ghosts interact with someone. Speaking, touching, moving and interacting with objects.
Poltergeist Literal translation means noisy ghost. An intelligent haunting where a ghost tends to target a certain person, usually an adolescent and cause annoying behavior around them. knocking on walls moving objects flickering lights.
A friend from work lived in a house owned by her uncle that was built on indian land. She said that things would fly off the mantle and other weird things would happen. Quote “i seen a guy standing in the door way of the hall one time. Scared the shit out of me! It’s a creepy place.”
Myling is said to be the ghost of a child or infant that died young and was not baptized or given a proper burial.
Phantom hitchhiker A ghost that many urban legends refer to. The appearance of a ghost on the anniversary of their death. These ghosts interact with a person by asking for a ride, but when arriving at their destination mysteriously disappear.
Haunted objects An object that a ghost has a strong attachment to. This can be almost anything such as a wedding ring, favorite chair, a toy, a doll, ect.
Mom was at work one time. She went to the bathroom and all the stalls were empty and the doors were open. She knew she was alone. She went to the next to last stall. She heard someone in the next stall moving around and they cleared their throat. She heard the latch open, but no one ever came out. They would have had to walk in front of her stall to leave and she would have seen their shadow through the crack and their feet under the door. She hurried and left. Then as when was walking down the empty hallway she saw the reflection of someone following her. She turned around to see who it was and there was no one there at all and there was nowhere to go in the hall. No side halls or rooms to duck into just a straight hallway. She mentioned this to some of her friends and she is not the only one to experience things like this.
Lore says that spirits can’t cross a salt line. People use to poor a line of salt around their beds for protection. On the tv show Supernatural they pour a line of salt across the windowsill and doorways. They also dig up the remains and salt and burn them. This is illegal by the way.
A strong threshold is said to be able to keep spirits and supernatural evil from entering, but it has to be a harmonious household for a strong threshold and not a bachelor pad. A single person living in a residence wont have a strong threshold. Of course that wont protect you from ghosts already in a home or anything that is invited in.
Iron is said to disrupt the energy patterns of ghosts and spirits. In old times iron horseshoes were hung over doorways and windows.
Lavender is said to protect from evil spirit. It was common to wear it when visiting cemeteries to keep spirits from following you home.

Phantimals These are basically ghost animals. You can find many legends about animals that either help the lost or cause them harm or just warn them to be wary. The most common are the black dog sightings. Black dogs, are these strange usually larger than normal dogs with red eyes. Sometimes they attack someone, but other times they simply guide a lost person to safety. They are usually considered a warning sign to potential danger.
Similar to the black dog is the legend of the Church Grim. Warning this is not a very good legend. It is said that the early church (We don’t do this anymore) would burry a large dog under the foundation of the church to serve as it’s ghostly protector of the property.
What is a demon you may ask? Most people have heard of them. They are spirit being in a similar manner to ghosts, angels, and phantimals. Unlike ghosts they were never human beings. They were never born into flesh. They are eternal spirits. Sometimes called the condemned ones. They are the ones doomed to spend eternity in hell at the end of the world. God has prepared a place of judgment for them. Until this set time they pretty mush run around earth messing with our lived trying to condemn us as well. They are being of pure hatred.
Who do they hate us? There are many legends and myths concerning this. It generally goes that they were once angels. God created them, but they were jealous of human beings and God’s love for us. At some point for some reason the chief of the demons Lucifer rebelled against God and those who followed him sere cast out of heaven. They are the fallen and became known as demons. They spend their time trying to hurt us because that is as close to hurting God as they can get. They know that their time is limited. At the end of the world they will be cast into hell and they want to drag as many of us with them as they can.
Regardless of what they are exactly or the reasons why. They are being of pure evil and hatred. They are clever. To underestimate them is a mistake. THey are limit in what they can do.(at first) They can’t just openly start attacking a human like on tv. They have to have an invitation. This is where it gets tricky. It doesn’t have to be a verbal invitation or a direct invitation. Any kind of divination, fortune telling, dowsing, tarot cards, quiji boards, ect. If you are trying to contact spirits, this is an invitation. By opening a door you have allowed it a foot hold in the physical world and once there it can grow ability. It can also attack others not just you. There are plenty of stories out there of one person calling up a spirit just to have it follow a friend home instead and the sudden death of pets in unusual ways. All it needs is a chance and it has limitless patience.
Levels of Demonic Activity
Step one is infestation
At this point it is light activity. Often confused with ghost activity. The spirit is not very strong. You probably just allowed it in and it is gearing up for the long haul. There will be scratching in the walls or knockings. Lights will flicker or turn on and off. Doors will open and close and you will hear footsteps or noises. You may experience cold spots or the presence of someone in your room either in a closet, corner of the room or even by your bed at night. You will probably feel uneasy or nervous.
The next step is oppression
You see and know something is not right, voices are telling you to do things. You may feel something is around you or touching you. You become angry easily or a loved one is becoming angry easily. It will feel like your life is turning upside down. At this point there is alot of emotional manipulation going on. There will be a lot of fighting going on in your home if you live with others and the person being oppressed will be acting different. Distant and angry. Sleeplessness will be common. This is how the demons attack us. and wear us down. Through our emotions and physical tiredness. At this point your homes threshold is useless. Depression is a serious factor here.
The third and final stage is possession
Pure possession is very rare, but at this stage it will and can if you let it. It has worn down your mental defenses and can move in and out of you at will. It can make your do things that are out of character and things you normally would never do or say. It has enormous strength now. The bizarre behavior in the home has really amped up and is happening every day. It will try to turn you against your loved ones and it wont be hard at this point. It will convince you that you can have anything and everything you want and should just take it if you want. It will convince you that those who love you are in your way and to isolate you from everyone in your life. It’s objective it to take full control of you.
certain things you can watch for are ghosts like activity as well as shadow movement. Feelings that are not normal for you, excessive anger, thoughts that are not normal for your. Unusual behavior in those you live with. In a similar to manner to ghosts smells demons also are followed by Certain smells like sulfur or rotten meat. Usually unpleasant. Accept when procession process starts to take hold the smells will become pleasant to the person.
I knew a woman whom i worked will. Her father was a victim of demonic procession. They were a Pentecostal family. Her home was a mess, everyone was upset all the time and her father was angry and kept the family on edge. She described her father’s bedroom as being ice cold even in summer and he would go in there and stay for long periods and would become violent if anyone disturbed him. She could see a shadow figure standing in the corner with red eyes, but no discernible features. When it saw that she could see it it ran to the door and the door opened without touching it and closed behind it as it left. She also said his eyes were a muddy red color at the time. After her church’s intervention he went through a deliverance. The Pentecostal form of minor exorcism. She said his entire attitude changed. He was a more loving father and nicer to everyone. The cold room was gone and his eyes were brown like everyone else in her family.
Also another friend of mine who has a flatmate. Her flatmate would sometimes wake up to see short black figures with red eyes standing around his bed. Talk about scary.
There was this one experience that I don’t know if it was anything demonic, but I woke to someone standing over me. They were tall and had a mean face. They bent over me and i couldn’t move. They put their face right in front of mine and screamed at me a primal scream, but it wasn’t audible exactly i heard it more as a feeling. Then their face melted into a horrible ugly thing. I snapped out of it with a startle and felt panic and felt terrible and scared. It felt very real and i would swear i was already awake. The next day i was talking to my mom and she told me of the dream she had the same night i had and i hadn’t mentioned anything to her about what i experienced. She woke up to someone standing over her bed. She closed her eyes and then opened them. He was still there. She got scared and closed her eyes again and opened them. He was still there. She tried to push him away and he disappeared.
Demons are mentioned in the Bible and can be cast out in prayer. Jesus cast them out from several people. He prescribes fasting and prayer. Fasting loosens the body. You come more in touch with your spiritual side by denying the body in faith. It also strengthens the mind with focus and discipline.
I would also recommend Cult explosion and Revival of Evil. Two documentaries that tell of the dangers of cults and demonic influence. Also a documentary called In the Grip of Evil. It tells the true story that inspired the movie the exorcist. The poor young boy who was possessed by a demon and how he was save by God and the archangel Michael.
Imps It is believed that truly evil people who gave themselves to demonic influence can become demons themselves, although not as powerful, and not free from the demon they served while in life. They become the spiritual slave of the demon and therefore more an extension of that demon.

Revival of Evil
In the Grip of Evil
Black eyed kids is a more recent phenomenon. They are always in a group usually two but sometimes three. Usually male. Young and wearing old style clothes. They will come up to your door and knock. They will ask to come in and use your phone or facilities. Always a scence that something is off with them. You will get the sense of dread and fear like a psychic attack. As if they are trying to bend your will. That is usually when one will notice that their eyes are entirely black. No whites visible. They will seem to know that you have noticed and become violent and angry. however they can not enter without permission. They will bang on the doors and windows violently until something, usually someone else arriving, causes them to flee.

Other notable Creatures.
Cockatrice: “They hatch cockatrice eggs, and weave the spider’s web. He that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper” Isaiah 59
The cockatrice is a mythical beast, basically a two legged dragon with a rooster’s head and wings. Legend says was born from an egg laid by a chicken and incubated by a toad or snake. Its reputed magical abilities include turning people to stone or killing them with a look or a touch. Refereed to as the death stare of the Cockatrice. It is said that it’s petrification remains after it’s death. The weasel is the only animal that is said to be immune to it’s stare. It is said that the Cockatrice will die immediately from hearing a rooster crow, or to have one look at itself in a mirror. Unlike the chicken the Cockatrice is said to have the ability to fly.
Cockatrice/7/8/5/<3 ❤ ❤ ❤
Basilisk: This is a creature that is often confused with the Cockatrice. Their origins are very similar and both have the ability to paralyze with their eyes. However the Basilisk does not cause petrification only paralysis. The basilisk is called the king of snakes and is said to hatch from the egg of a serpent and incubated by a chicken. (the reverse of the cockatrice) The basilisk is said to be vulnerable to cockerels and travelers use to carry them with them for protection. Also weasels are the enemy of the basilisk and one way to kill them is to throw a weasel into their lair which can be identified by the surrounding shrubs and grass being scorched and withered by it’s potent venom that will cause instant death if bitten.
