These were dark times for both the Kneemonster and world at large. It was a world dominated by legends and myths and the clash between beliefs of many different nations. Around these competing beliefs and philosophies was wrapped much folklore and mythology concentrating entirely on the Kneemonster.

The Knee Monster in England
“Nestled between Olde Whilby and West Nettleworth lies a little seaside Hamlet called Upper Middle New Londonderroxforshireton on Stoke. Little is said about the place after that incident in 1962 involving four ostriches, an old sea captain, two Russian spies and a Rugby team. But its prior claim to fame is the Old Stone church named after Saint Francois L’Homme de Francais. Oddly enough the most striking feature of the church is a stained glass dedicated to another Saint, Saint Erstwhistle the indifferent and his victory through divine intervention over the Fire breathing (and quite mythical) Knee monster of Antiaddabar. There is much speculation over the reason for the depiction of this event, almost as much as the speculation surrounding what the people of that region have against Addabar…”
“Thus, the legend of the Loch Nasty Kneemonster was born…The subsequent years brought repeated stories of new sightings of the Monster but most of these were jokes told at Angus’ expense; however some people claimed to have legitimately spotted the creature time and time again. Until 1195 when it was decided by some killjoy in the Church said that it was heresy and the sightings magically stopped. In fact, there was only one sighting during that entire time period from 1195 to 1217. This was by poor unfortunate Seamus (Nicholas) McNickerson who was promptly burned at the stake for this and other indiscretions involving blueberry wine and some goats.”
