The Bestiary is a reference page on the main site of Once Upon a Nightmare. It is used to keep a catalogue of supernatural species available for play in the game. In an effort to foster the creativity of its members, OUAN allows for the creation of new species to fill the Bestiary at any time. The only qualifications for creation are that the new creatures be well balanced and not too powerful, and that they be a unique addition to the Bestiary, not simply a slight variation on what it already present.
Besides the Bestairy (or Supernatural Creatures), there are three other types of characters available for play in OUAN: Gods, Fae, and Humans. There are also several subsets of these main species including Demigods, Half-Fae, Witches, and Druids. The Bestairy is used only to list the variations of Supernatural Creatures.
Creatures of the BlightEdit
The story arcs of the Blight have been accompanied by the creation of several new creatures to act as monsters for the characters of OUAN to combat. These creatures typically have a non-Blighted counterpart which can be encountered in a sometimes less dangerous capacity. These creatures are not necessarily open for play, but with the use of magic could be given a human form and therefore become playable in the game. Otherwise, they are merely listed to provide the players and characters with canon-based creatures to encounter in threads and plotlines both while the Blight is ongoing and after it is defeated.
