In keeping with our monthly contest and this realm of fantasy we visit here, this poll asks "How would you describe yourself" in this Land of Fantasy? You can pick 2 (two) here: one, the major personality and the other a sub-personality of your being. We are complicated beings, after-all. Elaborate on your choices, if you like.

Let's keep in mind that some of us consider at least some of these creatures not to be 'fantastic' but real. Perhaps not 'real' in the ordinary sense but in different way than they are usually perceived. Some of them may be 'light' or 'dark' in nature. Some are elemental, and therefore considered Air, Fire, Water and Earth of their kind. There are even sub-divisions amongst the elementals.

The list could be much longer but I tried to stick with the most commonly known amongst them. Many that are not mentioned are simply variations on those here. If you see yourself as some variation of your choice(s) or something 'Other' feel free to elaborate!

Do you love to play in the water? Perhaps you are an Undine. Do you prefer to hang out in the forest and commune with the trees? You may be a Dryad. Are you a hoarder and a trickster? Well, maybe Leprechaun suits you best.

Mostly, just have fun!

O.o How are you Classifying The jinn subtypes  djinn or genies?

Genies are usually protective helpful and sometimes tutelary creatures, who often grant wishes by common definition. They are generally bound to something too, like a lamp, artifact, place, tree or some such. They were originally something like a dryad or place spirit if memory serves. It is the jinn type Djinn that is most like we think of genies today.

Yes, they are derived from 'jinn' or 'djinn' but Djinn are composed of varying degrees of smokeless fire and free spirits who can roam at will. They can also shift-shapes and are considered to have a family - social structure much like humans. They can also interact with humans.

Types of Djinn:

Jinn: more or less where the original 'genie' comes from as told above, but they live in their own realm.

Ghul/Ghoul: a type of djinn who haunts graveyards and delights in the macabre.

Marid: large powerful 'giant' djinn who do sometimes grant wishes but you have to best them in battle or wits first. They are often magicians.

Efrit: they are seen as evil and ruthless, unpredictable and powerful. They are susceptible to magic.

Angel or Demon, all good or all bad, but being bad is more fun!  :evil:

...for "other" it would be the Changelings (which surprises me is not a selection).

One of my favourite characters was an darkling named Lily, from the "Changeling The Lost" RPG system.  I feel a very strong affinity for her.

Having not voted yet I would dare say that your explanation of your choices make sense to me, which in and of its own self is scary.

As I have always had a logical slant to things more often then not.

We seem to have a problem with thy definition of "fluffy" tis bit skewed for me :tearlaugh:
