    This may sound stupid but here goes... If you could be any mythical creature what would you be?

    Myself? 'Far Dorocha' or 'Dullahan'

    Far Dorocha rides on his black horse into our world to abduct humans that the Queen of the Good People desires. Although he never speaks, mortals invariably understand his commands and, unable to disobey, surrender their wills to his and mount up behind him.

    Clad in flowing black robes, the Dullahan has no head on his shoulders. He carries it with him in his hand, and because he is endowed with supernatural sight, he will hold the head up high. This allows him to see great distances, even on the darkest night

    This'll piss some people off ;)

    The mythical creature I'd like to be is 'God'. I'd be so powerful I could create a rock that even I couldn't lift.

    Thoughts of blasphemy set aside, I would not be the one God. Although clearly my wisdom and intelligence and power would be absolute if I was, I still do not wish to take responsibility in that way. I know that I am not good enough to be the sole power of all existence, so that everything that is is made after me and my creations. It simply is not, and should not be, my purpose.

    I like to be high in power, but never highest. I prefer the righthand spot to the actual leading. That is, in all aspects of life I am a good teamleader, coordinator and a tactician. But I do not want the responsibility to play with other people's lives.

    Anyway, for more than 6 years I believe, I've admired the Phoenix. Everything about the Phoenix appeals to me. The valour, the justice, the element of fire (although water would fit me better) and the incredible power and ability to heal. And of course the immortality in the best way possible. Not one long boring life, but countless lives of being born over and over again, to have the advantages of both without the disadvantages. The eternal youth and innocence and energy of a mortal, with the wisdom and power and influence of an immortal. Simply the looks of the Phoenix bird is marvelous.

    Pity there'll only ever be one of you so you won't have anybody to play the horizontal two-person ski team - sorry, couldn't think of anything better.

    I'll put it another way. Despite being a bird, you won't get no chicks.

    I'd be a shape-shifter, cos that would rock...and I could be a rock...

    Or I'd be part demon...I think I would have to be something that means I don't have to completely give up being a human, so the above two would be my preferred choices, or something similar...

    Far, far, too many to chose from, but probably:

    Herne the Hunter, also known as Cernunnos or the Horned God. Green Man; Opener of the Gates of Life and Death; Lord of the Wild Hunt. The masculine, active side of Nature; Earth Father. His sacred animals were the stag, bull, goat, bear. God of Nature; God of the Underworld and the Astral Plane; Great Father.

    @ Abomination:

    The joke thread is elsewhere. ;)

    I will create a topic of what you said withing the next few weeks I think. Something that I have thought about recently with a few of my friends. To answer your comment for now: There are far, far greater things in life than that. In fact, just about all of the other things are, to some people.

    A moderate Republican in a position of power in the US government. ;)

    Oh wait, you said "mythical," not "ridiculously impossible." My second choice would then have to be a dragon - the Chinese kind that are revered as good luck symbols, not the Western monsters that terrorize the countryside and get hunted down by overachievers with something to prove and/or compensate for.

    Then again, some occassional terrorization isn't such a bad idea...

    Since BOC already took the Satyr, Enagonios chose Dionysos... I will be a Silen. Pretty much the same hedonistic good-for-nothing as a Satyr, but without the hoofes and horns. :D

    Mythical creature, eh? Can I be Elminster?? :D

    If not...I'd probably be...a Sorcerer. Seriously, I really really want to be an epic level Sorcerer. :D
