Context

Powers and Abilities

Fiends are swift, agile beasts with terrible rending claws.


History

These savage beasts are the result of mystical experimentation by Shub-Niggurath. As such, they are ubiquitous throughout Shub-Niggurath’s realms.

Fiends are hunchbacked, hairless humanoids with lithe, elongated limbs ending in wicked scythe-like talons. They have a deceptively swift loping gait.

A wicked maw looking like the smile on a death’s head dominates the eyeless faces.
