Wait, how does the word "gothic" fit in there? All possible meanings known to me just don't...

"In the depths of the forest, deep down into no man's-land, are tales of terror that would make the boldest of men shiver. Tales of inhuman things, supernatural things, savage things.
Strange creatures dwell in the deepest, darkest forests in the world, but stranger still are the ones that live inside of man, inner beasts more fearsome than anything else.

One such creature is the Windigo.

The word used to describe the creature is not a proper noun because it has no name. Windigo is only a kind of "reference". The word itself is just one of the many ways to spell it. The term derives from the Algonquian root word "witiku", though throughout the tribes and times the term's spelling varies: Wendigo, Windego, Wetiko, Windago, Windikouk, and so on.

The legend of the Windigo is well known among the Algonquian speaking tribes in America, from the Maritimes to the Prairies, from central to north-eastern US. No "monster" or "evil spirit" evokes so much fear in these people."

Sounds like a pretty "gothic" creature to me.

Whoa! That was my first reaction when I saw him. What an interesting and awesome sim! Your history/mythology lesson was neat, too. (I'm *very* into mythology and am studying anthropology.)
Thank you for this obviously much-worked-on, well-made Windigo.

Always,
Emma

not to burst your bubble, but a "Windigo" is usually a female spirit

Honey, you are so good!!! Boy have I got a great idea for you....if you go here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=208480
you will see a new group that needs your help really badly. Right now you can pic your own tribe. I am doing Nez Perce, but am willing to share with others.

When in doubt, use clean installer
