A fanciful creature is one that is the stuff of legends. Fanciful creatures include the megabeasts, demons, and mystical creatures such as fairies. Fanciful creatures can appear in engravings and other works of art. Some fanciful creatures will spawn in certain biomes; fairies are common in good areas, and the mysterious Bigfoot can be occasionally spotted in savage forests. Others can appear only in special circumstances, such as the megabeasts which occasionally attack you in fortress mode. Furthermore, several fanciful creatures do not actually exist, living solely within the minds of particularly imaginative people.
