Snallygaster and Other Unusual Cryptids

The Snallygaster is a dragon-like beast said to inhabit Central Maryland, the Washington, DC, metro area, and particularly the Middletown area of Frederick County, Maryland. Many may not be familiar with this weird creature but that is changing thanks to a video game. But first lets learn something more about the Snallygaster.

German immigrants first settles these areas around 1730's and early accounts say their community was terrorized by a monster called a Schneller Geist, meaning "quick ghost" in German. The snallygaster was described as half-reptile, half-bird with a metallic beak lined with razor-sharp teeth, occasionally with octopus-like tentacles. It swoops silently from the sky to pick up and carry off its victims. The earliest stories claim that this monster sucked the blood of its victims. Seven-pointed stars, which reputedly kept the snallygaster at bay, can still be seen painted on local barns.

Snallygaster is an odd creature indeed but it is not the only. The Grafton Monster is another cryptid that some might not know about. This beast is a large humanoid cryptid said to reside in the forests around Grafton, West Virginia in the US. Another very odd think about the Grafton monster is that it is a large bi-pedal creature with no visible head, and covered in slick and white seal-like skin. In 2014,the television show Mountain Monsters featured the Grafton.

These and several other cryptids are featured in a video game. That game is introducing many new people to the world of cryptids.

The video game is Fallout 76.

Fallout 76 is an online action role-playing game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14, 2018, it is an installment in the Fallout series and a prequel to previous entries.

The game features numerous cryptids that includes ever things from aliens to bigfoot.

Here is a list of cryptids known to be found in the game.

Chupacabra - A legendary creature of Puerto Rican origin. Also known as "The Goat Sucker".
Flatwoods Monster - An entity reported to have been sighted in the town of Flatwoods in Braxton County, West Virginia.
The Grafton Monster - Which we have already talked about.
Mothman - A terrifying half-man, half-moth hybrid.
Sasquatch - Large Hairy bipedal creature.
Sheepsquatch - Also known as the "White Thing", is a woolly-haired cryptid reported across numerous counties in West Virginia, predominantly within the southwestern region of the state. But similar creatures have been reported in other states.
Snallygaster - Which we have already talked about.
Wendigo - A creature or evil spirit from the folklore of the First Nations Algonquian tribes.


There are also many other weird creatures in the game like ghost, monsters frogs and more.

Sheepsquatch

So, if you just can't get enough of cryptids, and really who can, then you might want to pick up Fallout 76. If you are a gamer and also like cryptids then you must check out the game. I like the fact that there are games that feature cryptids. We just need to get that Finding Bigfoot game over to the game consoles, as it is currently only available on PC.
