I would want to be a Tengu (http://www.jh-author.com/tengu.htm):

It was said that the best martial arts teachers in the world were all tengu shapeshifters. Students climbed the mountains searching for tengu, hoping to learn magic or advanced martial arts. Ninja magic was especially associated with the tengu, but honorable techniques could also be learned, and some respected warriors have reported that they learned their skills from a tengu master.http://www.jh-author.com/tengu.htm

Well, I am a Dwarf/Thief when I play D&D, but I am still new to the game.

I am not sure what form I would take, but I would be a god of nature creating storms, mudslides and earthquakes wherever man or womankind get overpopulated and out of control.

If I were to take a form I guess I would be semitransparent and hard to see. The only people who would see me would be the ones about to pay their taxes to nature and those whom I have spared.

If I were released today, the people of this world would see storms so violent all over the world that they would be praying for sunlight and when they did get it the would be in terror when the earth started to shake and the hills started to move.

And yes, California would disappear into the ocean so quick the Terminator would never know what happened.

Odin had an awesome 8-legged horse called Sleipnir. So either that, or a duck.

It's a toss-up between being a phoenix and a unicorn.

And if you want to understand why I, a straight guy, would pick a unicorn, go read Piers Anthony's Apprentice Adept series.

I was going to say the same. One of my favorite existing animals, coincidentally...I find many of the social dynamics around their breeding and interaction pretty hilarious.

As for mythical creatures...maybe a chimera. More likely a nue (鵺) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nue)

She's not mythical. I saw her with my own eyes! I was trapped under a 40 ton crane that fell over. And for a few seconds I watched as she flew in from the north, grabbed ahold of the top of the crane, and hoisted it up and over to a safe spot.

It was amazing! (And her little spandex get-up wasn' bad, either...)

At least I *think* it was Jill; she was wearing a mask at the time.

I can neither confirm nor deny my presence at that event.
