The Wog of Nodoroc

Just east of Atlanta, Georgia is the mysterious site of an eerie, boggy marshland that once emitted a constant bluish smoke, devouring everything that came into contact with it’s boiling waters. The Creek named this site, and the violent mud volcano within it, Nodoroc, or “gateway to hell.” But if the treacherous geography of Nodoroc were not enough to inspire fear, the Creek also believed that a vicious beast guarded this entrance to the underworld. A beast that required human sacrifices to appease its hunger. A devil-dog known simply as the Wog.

The Tale of Two-Toed Tom

Way down south, in the swamps near the Alabama and Florida state line, there’s said to live a demonic alligator of immense proportions.  His name is Two-Toed Tom, and he has terrorized residents of the region with his red eyes and insatiable appetite for decades.

Numerous attempts to track and kill the beast have been made, yet nothing from guns to dynamite has ever been able to do him harm;. That is except for the steel trap which once took all but two of his toes, leaving this vicious beast with his unique name.
