Hi.

I am an… avian gryphon. That's really the most I know. I'm unsure whether I'm feral or anthro, and I still aspire to seek more knowledge about… eh, myself.

I originally had heard about OKP when I had been browsing various blogs by Werelist users, and ultimately I found a link at Werelist again and decided to join. I've been for too long just at one forum, so perhaps there's something different to be found elsewhere as well. Turns out I was right.

What I did not know before was that there actually was a place specifically over otherkins. I pretty much thought two terms, therianthropy and otherkin, would have been just similarities. I had an expectation for Otherkin Phenomena to be completely different. But yeah, this very fact it's more otherkin-based makes me very curious.

Perhaps the biggest conflict I have with otherkins is the fact that I don't consider myself to be one, at least not clearly. For some others a gryphon is a clear otherkin due it being a non-existing species. I myself have often consider otherkin to be a feeling of being of some different race. While I do partly sense a certain affection to a race of gryphons, I don't feel alienated enough to be from any definite one. I just am.

There have been rumors that OKP is a very discussion-focused. If so, I might like this place after all.

Welcome to OKP, glad you made it over here!

And while it's been quiet here, we are a more science-oriented forum. Hope you like it here!

ovO Thank you for the welcomes folks!

I may be able to give a few comments, at least. Some of the topics seem interesting enough on here.
