    considering that griffins in mythology are designed to be ferocious combined with the fact that breeding lions with eagles is not an exact science (or necessarily science at all), I think the less than banner quality griffs would be purged from history as well as the breeding stock.

    As long as it doesn’t eat cats, I’ll take one. My cats would LOVE to play with that tail.

    A poem by Vachel Lindsay: (What Grandpa told the Children)

    The moon? It is a griffin’s egg, Hatching to-morrow night. And how the little boys will watch With shouting and delight To see him break the shell and stretch And creep across the sky. The boys will laugh. The little girls, I fear, may hide and cry. Yet gentle will the griffin be, Most decorous and fat, And walk up to the milky way And lap it like a cat.

    Besides, basilim, remember why these toys are homeless: they have defects of some kind, like the oily rabbit. This might be a two-legged griffin.

    Looks like they’ve already started bonding. I hope Justin can work the newbie into the story line!

    Baslim, I bear four tattoos of draconic beasts. Technically, two are dragons (four legs each), one is a wyvern (winged, with two legs), and the fourth is a winged serpent (no legs). As far as anyone who has seen them seems to be concerned, other than fellow SCAdians, I’ve got four tattoos of dragons.

    If the beast wants to be a griffin, or a gryphon, or yet again a “giffin” (incomplete griffin???), who are we to say him nay?

    Mivins - I remember that rhyme from childhood… thanks for the quick time trip!

    Gonna have to come up with a name for the newbie. Can’t just go calling him ‘the little guy’.

    I did a little reading up on Griffins over at Wiki. He and Boody gots at least one thing in common. Griffs, it seems, like to guard treasure.

    And as anyone who has ever read The Hobbit knows, so do dragons.

    He has a name, don’t worry. Just stay tuned. Oh, and he IS a Griffin.

    Just as long as his name isn’t “Merv.”
