a Thousand Unblinking Eyes


Something sinister lurks below the seaside town of Saltwich. The sky darkens, the sea churns, and ancient Evil stirs beneath the waves.

The N’Gorroth are an underwater species that has existed since long before the dawn of man. Their sprawling cities once covered the depths of Doaden’s deepest oceans, where they constructed grand temples to the Deep Ones, ancient gods of unfathomable power.​

Though little is known of this strange and ancient species, it can be said with certainty that if the day comes when their gods fully awaken, this will certainly spell the end of the world of Doaden.

Doom under Saltwich


Nestled on the south coastline of the Holy Western Empire, Saltwich is a quiet and unassuming fishing village. Unremarkable in nearly every way to the outside observer.


Saltwich's denizens are an insular folk, wary of outsiders, anyone travelling through this town would do well to listen to their instincts, and take their leave as quickly as they can. The villagers vary in appearance but tend to exhibit physical oddities including baldness, narrow heads, bulging eyes, pale skin, and an intense fishy body odor.


What outsiders fail to understand though, is that these traits are a result of the genetic mixing between humans of the area and the N’Gorroth, a gift from their god many hundreds of generations ago.

As they reach late adulthood, many townsfolk undergo a physical change, metamorphosing into an N’Gorroth hybrid. The process begins with the individual feeling compelled to return to the shores of Saltwich.
