Well, its blood glows. And it's all terribly gooey, Er...fascinating!

Description[edit | edit source]

These are the adult form of gargantuan zee-crabs, driven up from their spawning grounds in the south by peculiar radiations. They are named for their two large, luminescent illiciae reminiscent of anglerfish, but their function is unknown.

There are three types of Angler Crab, the reddish Western (150hp) and the blue Eastern (300?hp), as well as the Elder Angler Crab (600hp).

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Their attack pattern is to get as close as possible and then either lunging to damage your ship's Hull or increasing your Terror by 1. Sometimes they will kill one crewmember and damage the ship.

The Eastern Angler Crab also has a ranged attack that causes 4 damage and 2 Terror without making contact with your ship.

The Elder Angler Crab does 40 Hull Damage on hit.

Successful event
"Decapodal mysteries"

You and your ship's doctor clamber over the beast as it lies in the lee of your ship. Its blood is a curious blue: and the blood, too, is touched by luminescence. It's a female, but there are no eggs. And what's this, on its belly? Someone has chiselled seven marks between two horizontal lines, like pillars supporting a roof...
