Hideous Creatures: Serpent Folk
“The features mingled and merged in a seemingly impossible manner. Then, like a fading mask of fog, the face suddenly vanished and in its stead gaped and leered a monstrous serpent’s head!” They built Valusia before the dinosaurs, and lurk behind half mankind’s darkest cults. Are they extra-dimensional, extra-terrestrial, or just extra venomous? You won’t fool the Children of Yig, in any skin they wear.
The squamous serpent folk resemble upright, bipedal snakes, with wedgeshaped heads and taloned arms. They can sense motion, have a keen sense of smell thanks to their forked tongues, and can detect heat like a pit viper. They range in color from green and brown to pale yellow or gray, often spotted or streaked with darker markings.

Praise for Hideous Creatures,
“a brief injection of Hite-ian awesome … they’re just about the right length to digest in a single sitting, and full of amazing ideas that will make anyone’s game into a flavourful occult gumbo.” – High Trust, High Drama Blog
“I consider this series a wake-up call to the lacklustre, to remind them tales of the Mythos, using whatever system, should instill uneasiness, upset and fear. Grasp the potential of the unearthly and inhuman…” – Paul Baldowski
