Psuedo-Imaginary Dinosaurs    Lifeforms  (Ethereal)   (Forest/ Jungle)

We were crossing a ridge when Corgan was lifted off the ground by something.  "Shoot it!  Shoot the tyrannosaur!" he screamed as blood streamed from the puncture wounds that had opened up in belly.  I fired into the empty space above him to no effect.  Then Corgan's ragged corpse dropped to the forest floor, and I was alone.  Utterly alone.  There was no dinosaur.  There was nothing.

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
