Ann Shaffer came across this link to a page about a Canadian artist’s series of paintings called ”Exit, Pursued By A Bear” —how perfect is that?

Margaret Rubiano of the Compendium Monstrum on Sparkly Vampires: I couldn’t find an actual translation of Obour in the source material, but there was a note stating that its origins are Turkish, while the Slavonic name is Upior, and that in Dalmatia they are known as Wrikodlaki. (Sorry, no idea how to pronounce that one) On the plus side, they do appear to be easy enough to deal with-all you have to do is force the obour into a bottle using an Eikon, stopper it up, affix the Eikon to the bottle, and then chuck the whole enchilada into a fire. 

Karen Wessel Just remembered what I’ve been meaning to mention – not sure if you don’t know already but – the “Leiterwagen” mentioned in Dracula? the literal translation is Ladder (=Leiter) cart/wagon (=wagen). So called because the sides of it look like ladders. And if smaller stuff needed to be transported they had canvas to put inside and if dung needed to be transported they had boards/planks to take the place of the ladders on the side…
