BST 101: Introduction to Cryptid Theory
“All right, remember when you planned your expedition to go search for a cryptid?” Cressida asked the class. “Well, this time, that’s what you’re going to be doing. This is your final assignment in this class, so I expect it to be spectacular. Gather everything that you’ve determined you need for your adventure into the forest or mountains or desert or wherever, and set out to find your cryptid! I’d like photographic evidence of it, of course, to prove that you really did what you’re supposed to do.”
“Of course, if you didn’t do the previous assignment,” Cressida stated, “you’ve still got the opportunity to go search for a cryptid. I’ll simply be selecting it for you. You’ll be going to the mountains just outside the campus to search for a Tsuchinoko. It’s capable of jumping, and it’s quite venomous, so make sure you pack the proper potions

BST 101: Introduction to Cryptid Theory
“So, I take it you’ve all done the previous assignment, right?” Cressida asked her class, although she knew damn well who had done it and who hadn’t. “The simple one where you’ve just got to research different sorts of cryptids and provide me with a report on your research? Well, we’re building off of that one for this assignment.” Without missing a beat, a projector screen rolled down from its place above Cressida’s desk, the image shown on it being a map of the campus with arrows pointing to the mountains, forest and desert that surrounded the campus.
“There are a lot of places around here where you could encounter a cryptid,” Cressida explained. “There’s even a beach that’s not shown in this picture, but I’ve been there and I’ve seen some very odd things, including an Aspidochelone.” She left out the fact that she literally dropped a bomb on i

BST 101: Introduction to Cryptid Theory
“The intersection of the magical world with the mundane world is really quite interesting,” Cressida began, “and nowhere is that intersection clearer than with sightings of cryptids. A cryptid is some sort of animal, or occasionally other form of life, that is generally hidden from the rest of the non-magical world, while still being present within it. Of course, you can often find cryptids in magical regions, as well, and perhaps some of you actually are cryptids.” That would certainly be interesting, Cressida decided. “There are all sorts of cryptids of all different types,” the witch explained. “One of my particular favorites is the Mongolian Death Worm. Look it up!”
The witch smiled at her students. This was an introductory class, after all, and so hopefully it wouldn’t be too difficult for people to pass.

NoTM Christmas Event: SNOW EVERYWHERE
On the island of Detica, the city of Sinda was covered in snow.
A lot of snow. A veritable flood of snow, covering roads and making them virtually impassable, pouring down on rooftops, and making the generally cold waters surrounding the island even colder.
And the snow came quite suddenly, at that, all in the span of a couple of hours.
And it was entirely Marlena’s fault.
It was close to a lot of various winter holidays, after all, and despite the cold weather on the island, there had not been any snow that would seem suitable for the time, only sleet and slush and cold rain and the occasional brief hailstorm…
…so Marlena had thought it necessary to build a snow machine to produce some.
Of course, it had not gone as planned. Detica was a very magical island, after all, and the doctor’s attempt to bring it a bit more snow than usual went a bit off the rails thanks to the pervasive magical aura of the island. At least she had been able to get the snow machine to

NotM Secret Santa: Backpack and Blanket
Marlena was glad that she had gotten such a simple Secret Santa request. A blanket? A knapsack? That would be so easy, and quite fun to do as well. She could make them out of the same fabric that she used for her own clothes: self-repairing, self-cleaning to eliminate most kinds of stains, and even slightly programmable in the fact that she could get it to change color if she had the proper device to change its settings in the first place –
And then she remembered that Kasatka was magical.
There was no telling what kind of unpredictable results a magical person coming into extended contact with an extremely technologically advanced fabric would do. It could block Kasatka’s magic, or give her a rash, or just explode… you could never really determine beforehand what kinds of results the clash between magic and technology would have, though said results were usually quite detrimental to both parties involved. Marlena would have to make Kasatka’s present out of comp

Otherworlde NEC 203 (1+2): Jack the Ghost
Schrecken stared at the potion that his professor had given him to drink. It looked kind of weird, but the bogeyman had consumed plenty of strange things before, and apparently it would help him see ghosts. So, in his mind, there was no problem at all with drinking it – and as such, drink it he did.
It tasted about as weird as it looked.
At least he gained the ability to see ghosts… quite abruptly, as he realized that he was completely surrounded by ghosts at the moment. Of course, the bogeyman was not afraid in the slightest, partially as he rather liked ghosts, and partially because he may not have even had the capacity to be afraid in the first place. He waved at the various spirits who he could now see surrounding him, and their reactions were mixed: some waved back cheerfully at him, whereas others made rude gestures, ignored him, or simply vanished. Schrecken was mildly offended by the rude gestures.
According to his professor, the bogeyman had to actually help one of

Otherworlde NEC 202 (2+3): ZOMBIE SQUIRREL ATTACK!
“Check your immaturity at the door,” Mika had said. And as such, for the first time in a long time, Schrecken was actually trying to take his work completely seriously. He was excited, and he wanted to impress his teacher (who he remembered by now was not, in fact, a girl), but he was actually going to try to do his work seriously. After all, he was going to raise an actual animal from the dead now! That was very exciting to him, and he hoped that this time he wouldn’t get carried away or distracted and do something really stupid.
After his class was over, Schrecken decided to head into the woods. After all, if he was going to find a dead animal, wouldn’t the forest or the mountains be a good place to look, since animals killed each other all the time in places like that? He had seen it for himself plenty of times, both skulking through actual forests to find new houses to occupy, and on nature documentaries that he got bored with halfway through after the anima

Otherworlde NEC 202 (1): Bones
Animal Necromancy seemed like such a cool class to Schrecken. After all, zombie humans were one thing, but zombie animals? That was just awesome. Imagine going out into the woods and finding a zombie bear. Or a zombie bat. Or zombie bees. That was the kind of thing that really got Schrecken interested in Animal Necromancy. He had a very active imagination.
So, of course, when Mika told him that they would be taking the class slowly at first, the bogeyman was a bit disappointed. He got over it quickly, though, as he discovered that he would be learning about binding spells to command ghosts to carry out various tasks. He would be able to control ghosts. And that was awesome.
The bones that Schrecken had been given were small, and presumably belonged to a mouse or a rat or something similar. While the instructions that the bogeyman had received from Mika had no information on how to create an altar, it did provide the necessary information on how to perform the bindi

Otherworlde LIN 203 (3): The Black Rose
Schrecken had decided to skip his second assignment in LIN 203, and jump straight into the third one. The name “Crimson-Thorn Rose” alone sounded awesome, and while it was unlikely to actually be crimson given the fact that Schrecken’s blood was black, the fact that it could serve as a connection between the giver of the rose and the receiver meant that maybe, just maybe, the bogeyman could finally have someone who he could count as a friend without them leaving the academy any time soon. Maybe he could give the rose to his professor. He though Jasper was a really cool professor so far, after all.
Apparently, a Crimson-Thorn Rose was easy to make, provided that one had 10 milliliters of their own blood, and could sing a song as some sort of focusing incantation. That seemed simple enough, especially as Jasper had never actually specified a song for the students to sing. And for that matter, he also had never said anything about actually having to be a good singer. Sch

Otherworlde LIN 203 (1): A Sacrifice of Time
Schrecken was excited to start a new class with a new professor – and he liked this new teacher already. Jasper, he had said his name was. Schrecken would try to remember it. But what the new professor was teaching was, in the bogeyman’s mind, even more interesting than the presence of a new professor in the first place. Basic Sacrifice, it was called. It brought to mind images of evil wizards in cheesy pulp fantasy movies, conducting dark rituals in the middle of the night and calling upon dark forgotten gods to rain death and destruction upon the protagonists until the day was saved at the last minute.
The dark forgotten gods were generally actors in rubber suits with bad special effects, but Schrecken still thought the movies were great. It was about what you could imagine, not just about what was shown on screen. You had to really get into it.
Well, at least Schrecken already had a general idea of what he was going to do. He wasn’t going to sacrifice anything to a

Groups

Unless it was around Halloween or Christmas, Cressida's classroom did not change much. And during the early months, this was no exception. She hated Valentine's Day, and thus had no intention of decorating for it. Instead, from January to March, students would see what they always saw: a classroom covered with various plants and vines, which Cressida usually used to help pass materials to her students.

"Welcome to Beast Studies," the witch announced. "I'm your new permanent professor, Cressida Hawthorn. I'm quite certain you all have the potential to do quite well in all of my classes... so don't disappoint me." Her expression was stern and cold, though her voice was less so. "I hope you'll find these assignments satisfactory and rewarding. After all, I am an excellent professor."

You DO realize that your hatred for llamas is exactly the reason that people are sending them to you, do you not? They think it's funny.

Of course, this COULD be an attempt at reverse psychology, taking advantage of this kind of behavior in order to get more llamas... but I still thought it would be funny to send you one regardless.
