USR Mythos: Deep Ones
Posted by Scott Malthouse
"Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked ... They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design - living and horrible." - The Shadow Over Innsmouth
Action: d8 (d10 in water)
Weapon: Claws +2
Specialisms: Terrifying visage (Ego +2), Swimmer (Action +3)
Deep Ones are a hideous race of sea-dwelling humanoid creatures. They are immortal, aside from if they are killed by violent means and they are not against surfacing to mate with humans, producing blasphemous hybrids of land and ocean. They worship Cthulhu, Father Dagon and Mother Hydra deep beneath the surface of the sea.
Deep Ones rarely surface alone, so the investigators will likely come face-to-face with a group of them, usually 4 or 5, but sometimes many more. They emit a foul fishy stench that can give away that there are Deep Ones nearby, and their hideous gurgling voices do not speak the tongue of humans.
