This Forum page is devoted to the investigation and exposure of cryptids. A cryptid is a creature or plant whose existence has been suggested but that is unrecognized by a scientific consensus, and whose existence is moreover often regarded as highly unlikely. Most of us can agree that science might find it inconvenient to prove cryptids, but that evidence within our own experience proves their existence.

KillerB201: I’ve seen vampires with my own eyes, but if you expect me to believe any of this shit you’re out of your mind.
HNTR307: Obviously this is your first squaredance. You can believe in vampires but not werewolves? Where’s your head at?
YahwehDevotee: The important thing is to document the encounters. Get it on videotape or take a picture. The deniers won’t be able to continue with their denial once they see proof.
KillerB201: Let’s see some footage. Then we’ll talk.
Raven1981 Instead of trash talking we might be better served trying to work together. Ever think of that?
Level: I’ve seen them with my own eyes. From a distance, thankfully. I wasn’t equipped to try to take them on directly, so I just observed. They’re real. They exist. Deal with it, because when you come face to face with one if you’re too busy trying to rationalize it away your innards are going to spill out before you have a chance to draw your silver shooter. Get me?
KillerB201: Why don’t you pony up some proof?
Level I’m bringing surveillance equipment with me next month. Give it time, I’ll get you the proof you need to get your head out of your ass.
KillerB201: We’ll see. I’m not holding my breath.
Tactical: Even if you don’t believe in them, it might behoove you to carry a magazine of silver bullets. Just a suggestion. We need every Hunter out there that we can get, and if you’re too cheap to make a few silver bullets it could cost you your life. A fully loaded AR-15 magazine weighs in at around a pound – that’s not much extra weight to pack in order to give you a fighting chance. Do us all a favor and suspend your disbelief long enough to save your own ass.
Yeoman: Tactical’s right. Listen, B, getting audio and video of these things isn’t exactly easy. A lot of the Cryptids have senses that are far more powerful than our own. They can smell you from a mile away, sometimes literally. Why do you think they’re apex predators that have managed to evade the public eye? Some of these things are smart, really smart. And they don’t take kindly to people videotaping their pow-wows. There have been plenty of our kind that have gotten overly ambitious and never made it back to show the video they got. Why don’t you do some research and see if you can get your own proof?
Raven1981: B, whatever you do, don’t do it alone. These aren’t the kind of creatures you should take lightly. Always work under the assumption that even if they don’t know exactly where you are they know that something has invaded their territory.
Level: I don’t travel alone. I don’t have a death wish. It’s best to bring as many cool-headed individuals along as you can, so that if things go South in a big way you’ve got a fighting chance. Now, with this particular type of target big groups mean you’re throwing more scent into the wind. A good way to correct it is with descenting clothes or products. Just a pointer, in the event you decide to try to chase some of these down.
