Ghosts and ghouls and creatures of the night!
Which of these beasts gives you the most delight?

Vampires, I suppose. I prefer them as they are in Hellsing to most portrayals we see nowadays.

I think werewolves are cool. :3 There's no particular reason for it, but I like the stories that involve werewolves the best outta the lot!

Surprised the poll/thread hasn't turned into a zombie circlejerk yet. Because we never hear enough about zombies.

Out of that list a Witch since she would have the tools to take out any of the others, but my personal favorite is the Sphinx.

It's really hard when there's something to love about all of them. :gator:

But out of that list, I may have to go w/ Vampire.

My favorite overall is the Manticore.

It's a poll on the frontsite, so there can be anonymous voters.

I'd also like to iterate how people have complained how vampires have been treated recently in media, but hardly anyone has commented on how zombies have almost no proper representation of their origins. They were not mindless flesh eaters that could spread their predicament onto others. In Haitian tales they were basically just slaves made from reanimated corpses.

That's nothing compared to what has happened to the fae folk over the years. Look at them in any traditional story. Heck, Tinkerbell HERSELF tried to kill Wendy. Man, I want some more traditional faerie tales. It feels like the Dresden Files are the story keeping their legacy alive.

Sorry to say, but that change doesn't bother me one bit. I think I prefer the mindless flesh eaters who spread their predicament, honestly.

Except that there's really nothing to fear from that regard. Heck, it's basically a slightly worse version of rabies. Bites are not an efficient transmission vector. The fact that it makes the target slower and less intelligent is just a further nail in its coffin.

Zombies need magical animation in order to survive any of the countless ways exposure could kill them, not to mention the various ways humans would kill them. Zombies need an efficient way of spreading rather than running at the target and hoping to get a bite in. Zombies also need magical augmentation to give them the strength to make them threatening, as otherwise lack of proper diet and exercise makes them wither away to nothing.

Zombies are just kind of pathetic.

It depends on the medium, really. (lol medium)

For "real life": I absolutely love ghost stories and haunted houses and all that jazz. As a kid, I didn't give a shit about Santa Claus or supernatural deities; I desperately wanted ghosts to exist just because they were so damn cool and mysterious. Despite being a clear skeptic at a young age, whenever I went to a "haunted house" or the like in my middle-teens, I still internally hoped something crazy would happen.

For movies/TV: probably vampires.

We heard a bunch of wild turkeys outside a cabin we stayed at a couple of years ago. It as hilarious to just see random oversized turkeys running around outside.

Go play Dead Rising. Ammunition is for chumps.

Someone once commented that they'd never before seen someone whose solution to a zombie outbreak was to methodically kill every zombie. But that is my approach. They really aren't much of a threat to anyone with a brain.

Pity that the whole game is on a timer, or it would have been awesome.

Yes, actually. I killed it with a swift kick to the head. I am not impressed.

They call them Stalfos in Zelda, but I think they made that up.They didn't, "fos" is a suffix meaning warrior (I forget what language it's butchered from). Living Skeletons are called Skeleton Warriors. Although a more concise yet obscure term would be Anima (already plural, no "s" required).

I prefer ghouls, they're basically the best of ghosts and zombies combined, in that they are arcane/otherworldly (like ghosts), and infectious and hungry (like zombies). Also, while zombies eating people is scary, ghouls eating corpses, poop, and the living (without discrimination) is far more disgusting and scary. A ghoul would make a feast out of a zombie horde.
