    I've recently picked up the free Pokéthulhu 3rd edition and instantly feel in love with it. Unfortunately I was dismayed to see that only about 32 or so Pokéthulhu were stated out!!! So, I come to you, great Playgrounders, to help expand this pitiful number of Pokéthulhu. Here is the format below:

    Name
    Power: # Speed: # Hit Points: #
    Aspects: First, Second
    Weakness: aspect

    Injure: # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)
    Dodge: # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)
    Trap: # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)
    Frighten: # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: <text here>

    For those who are lazy, you'll find all the formating in the spoiler:
    Spoiler
    Show
    [SIZE="4"][FONT="Century Gothic"]Name[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [B]Power:[/B] # [B]Speed:[/B] # [B]Hit Points:[/B] #
    [B]Aspects:[/B] First, Second
    [B]Weakness:[/B] aspect

    [B]Injure:[/B] # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)
    [B]Dodge:[/B] # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)
    [B]Trap:[/B] # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)
    [B]Frighten:[/B] # dice (Name of attack, Aspect)

    [B][I]Pokénomicon Excerpt:[/I][/B] <text here>


    For easy reference here are the Aspects and simple guidelines to creating Pokéthulhu:

    Aspects are more than just Physical (or energy-manifested) literal concepts. They're spiritual resonances. It's something to do with geometry; nobody's really figured it out yet! These are the eight Aspects known to Pokéthulhu science (and examples of popular thulhu that have these Aspects):

    Decomposing: For the dead/undead thulhu, or thulhu that just smell that way. Whip-Poor-Will is a Decomposing thulhu ('cause she's a death spirit).

    Fishy: Speaking of smells! Swimmers and clawed beach-scuttlers alike are often Fishy. Dagong is a Fishy thulhu.

    Fungous: Soft, squishy, yielding and mushy thulhu have this. Fungal Cluster is the most popular example.

    Icy: They come from cold planets and can freeze you solid! Pokéthaqua is an Icy thulhu.

    Luminescent: For thulhu using strange energies. Randy Carter's own cute little Pikathulhu is Luminescent.

    Non-Euclidean: For thulhu who warp in and out of space and time, or run angles to reality. Tindaloo is a Non-Euclidean puppy escaped from the Cheap Curry Dimensions.

    Squamous: The scaly, the slithery, the ophidian and the reptilian (and those who hang out with them) are Squamous, just like Scuttle.

    Sticky: The wet, the slimy, the elastic and tentacular are Sticky thulhu. Nine-Tentacled Ftaghn isn't just sticky, it's especially Sticky.
    New Aspects:
    Legendary: The greatest and most powerful of the thulhu, these are the feared Paragons and Elders of the thulhu kind. Legendary thulhu have an extra 4 points maximum to spend on Power, Speed, and Hit Points and their attacks have a maximum of 4 dice. Attacks cannot have the Legendary aspect and Legendary cannot be chosen as a weakness.
    Elder: The greatest of the great, the legends of all that is legendary are the Elder Thulhu. Their attacks can have any aspect except that of their weakness and gain Elder as an additional aspect type (i.e. an Icy-based attack has both the Icy and Elder aspects).
    Creation Guidelines
    Power, Speed, and Hit Points: No more than 20 total, each must be from 1 to 12.
    Attacks: Must have at least 1 each, no more than 3 dice. Total dice cannot exceed 9 for trained, 6 for wild Pokéthulhu. (Note that some Pokéthulhu are wild only, some are trained only and some are both)

    Here is an example of my own creation:

    Glaakow
    Power: 12 Speed: 3 Hit Points: 5
    Aspects: Sticky, Fungous
    Weakness: Icy

    Injure: 3 dice (Methane Gas Explosion, Fungous)
    Dodge: 1 dice (Slip-Slidin' Away, Sticky)
    Trap: 2 dice (Sticky-Slimy Milk, Sticky)
    Frighten: 3 dice (Horribly Nauseous Fumes, Fungous)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Glaakow appears to be a normal cow, except covered in strange fungal growths that constantly ooze pus and release puffs of methane gas. The Glaakow is renown and feared for its powerful fumes and most avoid it, though those of strong stomach and greater sanity choose such creatures as powerful tools of fear.

    A Wild Glaakow has 2 less injure and 1 less trap.

    Millslime
    Power: 7 Speed: 8 Hit Points: 5
    Aspects: Sticky, Non-Euclidian
    Weakness: Icy

    Injure: 2 dice (Semisonic Moo, Non-Euclidian)
    Dodge: 3 dice (Beanbag Body, Sticky)
    Trap: 3 dice (Juxtaposition, Non-Euclidian)
    Frighten: 1 dice (Mud Melt, Sticky)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Much like Glaakow, Millslime resembles in many ways an average cow. Where Glaakow is terrible and covered in fungus, however, Millslime is merely illogical and amorphous. "The Mud Bull", as Millslime is often called, is famous for its bulbous balls of slime that seem to phase in and out of existence, traveling along its body when no one is watching. In fact, no can ever recall actually seeing its legs move when it walks, either...

    Millslime are never seen in the wild and can only be encountered trained.

    Cthudude
    Power: 8 Speed: 4 Hit Points: 8
    Aspects: Squamous, Decomposing
    Weakness: Icy

    Injure: 3 dice (Horrid Fangs, Squamous)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Discorporate, Decomposing)
    Trap: 1 dice (Envelop, Squamous)
    Frighten: 3 dice (Otherworldly Hiss, Decomposing)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Cthudude is a floating sphere of knotted snakes with "arms" composed of several snakes each sticking out its sides. Regular Cthududes are invisible and intangible spirits of the dead; they attract nearby ophidians to make up their bodies. It dodges by releasing all its component snakes and reforming a short distance away.

    Wild Cthududes have one less Injure die and two less Frighten die.

    M'nakarp
    Power: 1 Speed: 3 Hit Points: 2
    Aspects: Fishy, Sticky
    Weakness: Decomposing

    Injure: 1 dice (Feeble Splash, Fishy)
    Dodge: 3 dice (Frantic Swimming, Fishy)
    Trap: 1 dice (Stink of Fish Slime, Sticky)
    Frighten: 1 dice (Nasty Slime, Sticky)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: The M'nakarp is known as the most pathetic of thulhu and the most annoying. Always found in the wild since no one in their right or even their wrong mid would train one. The M'nakarp flop around and smell bad, though are extremely tasty in a variety of dishes. Most freshmen revere the M'nakarp for this reason.

    I recently homebrewed a new Thulu Aspect:

    LEGENDARY
    • Legendary thulu have only one aspect: Legendary.
    • When a Lengendary thulu is affected by an aspect it is weak against, only three-quarters of the number on the extra die is counted.
    • A Legendary thulu can only have attacks of its second Aspect.
    • Legendary thulu are one-of-a-kind beings of incredible power. Only one of each exists (although some may have diametric opposites).
    • Due to their incredible might, at creation Legendary thulu have 24 points to spend on Power, Speed, and HP, a maximum of four die in each attack, and 9 die to spend on attacks.


    What do you think? Overpowered? They are one-of-a-kind and highly intelligent, so they'd probably be villains, puppetmasters, or MacGuffins.


    Magmarcane
    Power: 7 Speed: 8 Hit Points: 9
    Aspects: Legendary/Luminescent Paragon
    Weakness: Icy

    Injure: 4 dice (Volcanic Doom, Luminescent)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Blinding Flare, Luminescent)
    Trap: 1 dice (Fire Coils, Luminescent)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Searing Vision, Luminescent)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Magmarcane was actually a powerful human wizard of long ago, who used his thulu to create a citadel in the Earth's mantle. Living in isolation surrounded by thulu, he became madder and madder until his humanity departed from him and Magmarcane burst from his mortal shell, brooding and observing the world above from his massive dungeon. Through his centuries of observation, he knows almost all human lore, making him a valuable resource for his potential Cultist.

    I glad to see a number of responses, we're to a good start!

    On the Legendary aspect: very good idea, though I'd personally go for a more "paragon" approach, meaning they have two aspects as normal, legendary and some other one, but that means all attacks are of the non-Legendary aspect. However, the Legendary aspect allows for the increase in points for Power/Speed/Hit Points and increased dice. I'd lower the points to 24 though. Remeber that a 12 means you have an 11 in 1 chance of success, with 30 points you can max power and speed out and still have 6 points for HP, with 24 points you can only max out 1, but still have a lot left over.

    I like your ideas, but with one hangup. If they can only take attacks from their second Aspect, that decreases their versatility even more than a regular thulu's two Aspects. It may be to make them more balanced, but remember: they're supposed to be somewhat unbalanced. Like the omnipresent legendary sword in 90% of all fantasy everywhere.

    4 dice is legendary enough, nothing gets that many. As I said before, I would think of Legendaries as paragons of one aspect, not everything minus one.

    Touche. But not all legendaries would make sense as single paragons. Take Magmarcane:
    -Lava-beast: Sticky and Luminescent
    -Powerful Wizard: Non-Euclidean and Luminescent.

    And another, not-yet-fully statted legendary:
    -Giant, deep sea sea monster: Fishy and Icy
    -Infinite size: Non-Euclidean
    -LOTS of tentacles: Sticky (and a little Non-Euclidean)

    While they would make some sense as paragons, they also have other qualities that make them more than one type. Legendary could be a sort of superaspect, somewhat like Magic. They have two types, but are also legendary. Maybe the 4 dice max could be for their two aspects only.

    I thought of a better comprise:

    New Aspect - Elder
    May only be accompanied by the Legendary aspect. Thulhu with the Elder aspect can have attacks of any aspect type except that of their weakness. All of that thulhu's attacks also have the Elder type.

    Elder, unlike Legendary, can be taken as a weakness by any thulhu with the Legendary aspect.

    So, what do you think? This allows for Paragons of an aspect and Elders (referring to elder gods of evil of course).

    Genius! Now I just have to decide if Magmarcane is a Paragon or an Elder.

    Gerbi-Az
    Power: 6 Speed: 12 Hit Points: 6
    Aspects: Legendary, Icy
    Weakness: Elder

    Injure: 3 dice (Frosty Nibble, Icy)
    Dodge: 4 dice (Sleeting Dash, Icy)
    Trap: 1 dice (Freezing Spit, Icy)
    Frighten: 1 dice (Creepy Cold, Icy)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: The Gerbi-Az looks like a giant frozen gerbil which is extremely cute and fierce. The Gerbi-Az is a paragon of the Icy aspect, a legend to all Cultists. Only the best and most attuned to the Icy aspect can dare handle the insanity-inducing cuteness of this thulhu.

    Gerbi-Az are only found trained.

    Here's a few more spawned by 2 AM Mountain Dew, Futurama, and Boy Scouts:

    Poetto
    Power: 4 Speed: 6 Hit Points: 10
    Aspects: Non-Euclidian, Fungous
    Weakness: Decomposing

    Injure: 2 dice (Malice Mold, Fungous)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Run At A Right Angle, Non-Euclidian)
    Trap: 2 dice (Suction Spores, Fungous)
    Frighten: 3 dice (Your Worst Nightmare, Non-Euclidian)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Poetto are rarely seen in their natural form, tending to take the shapes of other thulu to disguise themselves. While weak compared to more mainstream thulu like Gilgarok, Poetto hold great potential for trainers willing to adapt to their unique battle styles. Any cultist who can wrap their minds around Poetto's transformation abilities is sure to drive his enemies all the way to adulthood!

    Wild Poetto have 1 less die in Injure, Dodge, and Trap.


    Gilgarok
    Power: 8 Speed: 6 Hit Points: 6
    Aspects: Icy, Luminescent
    Weakness: Non-Euclidian

    Injure: 3 dice (Gilgarok Smash, Icy)
    Dodge: 1 dice (Flashbang Blink, Luminescent)
    Trap: 3 dice (Look At The Shiny, Luminescent)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Illusory Fractional Diefication, Luminescent)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: This hulking brute is arguably the most logical of all thulu. He's large, powerful, and terribly cruel; a perfect thulu for beginners! Randy fights one of these buggers in episode #739, "To Catch A Prexador!" and narrowly escapes a 'crushing' defeat. Except for their unearthly appearance, there's really very little difference between a Gilgarok and a very large and intelligent ape.

    Wild Gilgarok have two less Trap dice and one less Frighten die.


    Enkidork
    Power: 4 Speed: 11 Hit Points: 5
    Aspects: Squamous, Luminescent
    Weakness: Fishy

    Injure: 2 dice (Pitviper Punch, Squamous)
    Dodge: 3 dice (Headlight Stare, Luminescent)
    Trap: 2 dice (Anaconda Kisses, Squamous)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Animalistic Visage, Luminescent)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Big eyes, big teeth, and three tiny brains: Enkidork look like cartoony raccoons mixed with a pit viper. While not very threatening on their own, they tend to team up with bands of Gilgaroks to hunt down children and other prey.

    Wild Enkidorks have one less die in Injure, Dodge, and Frighten.

    Prexador
    Power: 9 Speed: 10 Hit Points: 5
    Aspects: Legendary, Squamous
    Weakness: Elder

    Injure: 2 dice (Flay Of Zuul, Squamous)
    Dodge: 4 dice (Nosedive, Squamous)
    Trap: 1 dice (Wingnap, Squamous)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Fillet Of Soul, Squamous)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: An ancient thulu made of what appears to be stone, this terrible entity flies across the earth devouring mortals and thulu alike. Its long, hooked beak allows it to make short work of smaller foes, and the claws on its wingtips give tougher enemies a run for their money as well. None comprehend the rationale behind its malicious attacks, leading many to suspect there isn't any. Only the most ancient of thulu can be sure of its vile machinations...

    Prexador are so powerful they are considered trained, even when encountered in the wild.

    Power: 8 Speed: 4 Hit Points: 12
    Aspects: Legendary, Elder
    Weakness: Luminescent

    Injure: 4 dice (Crushing Maw, Fishy)
    Dodge: 1 dice (Slippery Skin, Sticky)
    Trap: 2 dice (Freezing Glare, Icy)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Maddening Size, Non-Euclidean)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: This thulu is an Ancient Elder Evil, and should only be approached by a master Cultist. Alone, this thulu sank the advanced continent of Atlantis, pulling it underwater to make a home for itself in this dimension. This thulu takes the form of a massive eel, with thousands of tentacles surrounding its head. The Deeplord is actually infinite in size, taking up about 1/4 of the ruins of Atlantis, its tail trailing of into a dimensional rift at the bottom of an incredibly deep trench. When summoned, its body extends from the Dodecahedron. This thulu has incredible control over water, able it instantly freeze, churn, or boil it at will.

    Nathunk
    Power: 8 Speed: 6 Hit Points: 6

    Dodge: 1 die (Leap, Fishy)
    Trap: 1 dice (Secrete Poison, Fishy)
    Frighten: 2 die (Inhale And Inflate, Fishy)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: In episode #286, "Oh, R'yleh?", one of these froggy little devils gave Randy's Tindaloo a thorough pounding, eliminating Randy Carter from the Elder Four Tournament on the Victory Road To Madness. Nathunk secretes chemicals to slow foes down before it digests them while they struggle to escape the powerful neurotoxins.

    Nathunk are only encountered wild.

    Injure: 2 dice (Digest, Squamous)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Wiggle Room, Squamous)
    Trap: 3 dice (Super Poison, Fishy)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Inhale And Inflate, Fishy)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Toxinath is a more advanced form of Nathunk, with a stronger poison and extra evil. They typically hunt wayward swimmers and fish, keeping to polluted rivers and streams to take advantage of sludge's darkness and viscosity.

    A wild Toxinath has 1 less die in Injure, Firghten, and Trap.

They use the dark to their advantage to spring forth from the unknown and take down their targets before the hunted knows theres a hunter at all.

    Wild Sab'uhl-Ey have 1 less die in Frighten and 2 less dice in Injure.

    Aspects: Non-Euclidean, Luminescent
    Weakness: Decomposing

    Injure: 2 dice (Mind Blast, Luminescent)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Time Shuffle, Non-Euclidean)
    Trap: 2 dice (Phantasmagoria, Non-Euclidean)
    Frighten: 3 dice (Eternal Witness, Non-Euclidean)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Chronocta is an owl-like thulu, with very large, yellow eyes. This is the only accurate description, as these are the only traits that those who encounter it remember. It has some rudimentary control over time, and can blast its foes with with shockwaves of psychic force, sending them into a microcosm made of their own fears. It devolves into Noctoroth if it stays awake from sunrise of the day before the full moon to moonset the day after. Cultists usually give them caffiene to do so, but this can cause permanent brain damage to the Noctoroth.

    Wild Chronocta possess one less dodge die, frighten die, and injure die.

    Noctoroth
    Power: 6 Speed: 7 Hit Points: 7
    Aspects: Non-Euclidean, Luminescent
    Weakness: Decomposing

    Injure: 3 dice (Psyrend, Luminescent)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Fold Time, Non-Euclidean)
    Trap: 2 dice (Collapse Consciousness, Non-Euclidean)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Primal Nightmares, Luminescent)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: This thulu was first encountered in #287, "Ia, R'yleh!". An exceptionally cruel Cultist had devolved his Chronocta with dangerous amounts of Red Millslime, making it almost uncontrollable and even more insane. Its own rage saved Randy and Co.'s lives, collapsing a section of tunnel on itself and its Cultist. More "well-adjusted" Noctoroths are more easily controlled. They appear as humanoid owls, with a jagged red-and-black stripe pattern. They have hands with opposable thumbs extending from their wing joints, and bear mysterious and intricate golden staves, which cannot be parted from them. Their psychic and chronal powers are more developed than its younger stage.

    There are no wild Noctoroths. Any encountered in the wild are likely escaped from or set loose by their masters.

    Maiouth
    Power: 5 Speed: 9 Hit Points: 6
    Aspects: Decomposing, Non-Euclidian
    Weakness: Fishy

    Injure: 1 dice (Toothy Grin, Decomposing)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Phase Out, Non-Euclidian)
    Trap: 3 dice (Right Behind You, Non-Euclidian)
    Frighten: 3 dice (Just Laugh And Smile, Decomposing)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Maiouth are commonly described as huge, grinning felines made of what looks like at least 10 different cats. They stalk and torment their prey in the wee hours of the morning, laughing maniacally and disappearing when looked at directly.

    Wild Maiouth have 2 less dice in Trap and 1 less in Dodge.


    Permeouth
    Power: 11 Speed: 4 Hit Points: 4
    Aspects: Decomposing, Luminescent
    Weakness: Fishy

    Injure: 3 dice (Mawed Rip, Decomposing)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Duck And Roll, Decomposing)
    Trap: 2 dice (Horrendously Bright Lights, Luminescent)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Discombobulated Soul, Decomposing)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Permeouth have been compelled by their Cultists to shed Maiouth's corporeal body, retaining only eyes and their terrible mouths. Unlike their smaller cousins, they do not fade in and out of reality and instead viciously attack any who stare directly into their luminous orbs.

    Permeouth can only be encountered trained, as they are not naturally occurring.


    Sineouth
    Power: 7 Speed: 9 Hit Points: 3
    Aspects: Decomposing, Non-Euclidian
    Weakness: Elder

    Injure: 3 dice (Para-Realistic Bite, Non-Euclidian)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Phase Out, Non-Euclidian)
    Trap: 1 dice (Gotcha!, Decomposing)
    Frighten: 3 dice (The Thing That Howls In The Night, Decomposing)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Sineouth are very similar to Permeouth in that they have left behind their rotting remains in favor of eyes and a smile. They do differ, however. Sineouth are less malicious than their cousins, preferring instead to simply taunt wayward travelers during the night. A Sineouth's teeth and eyes glow with a horrid purple light, evidence of their birth. While a Maiouth need merely be instructed to devolve into a Permeouth, Sineouth are only created when a Maiouth's body shedding is interrupted by a powerful blast of Elder energies. These energies warp the nature of the Permeouth, leaving it changed and weak to that most ancient of powers.

    Sineouth are never encountered wild, as they can only be created particularly insane Cultists.

    Anybody here run pokethulu games they'd like to share? What sort of adventures did the character go on, how many thulu did they have (overall power level you played at), and how closely did you adhere to the whole Randy Carter pseudo-pokemon story?

    Not yet, but I'll tell you about it afterwards. I'll probably run a game as a full pokemon parody with my group back at home after finals so about 2-3 weeks from now. You, it might be possible to play a PbP of this...

    Ah, yes, but how would we implements Chaos cards (if at all)? Not only do the players keep them secret from the Owner,but they relate to a TV show that doesn't even exist.

    Of course you use them, for hilarity and on the off chance some one actually guesses correctly (extremely low chance but who cares?). The game is not meant to be completely serious. If you really want to, make your own cards and have them just parody Pokemon and make the answers simple.

    Edit: Of course, in a PbP they could not be secret from the Owner, but I don't think that really matters.

    Vampushroom
    Power: 6 Speed: 4 Hit Points: 10
    Aspects: Funguous, Decomposing
    Weakness: Luminescent

    Injure: 3 dice (Bloodthirst, Decomposing)
    Dodge: 1 dice (Spore Cloud, Fungous)
    Trap: 3 dice (Entangling Growths, Fungous)
    Frighten: 2 dice (Stench of Decay, Decomposing)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: Vampushroom is a large, ambulatory mushroom, supported by a nest of fungous tentacles. It craves the bodily fluids of living organisms, trapping them in its tentacles and dropping them into the toothy maw that opens from its cap. It is not too picky about its prey,and must be trained not to attack its Cultist's companions.

    Wild Vampushrooms have one less Injure die, one less Frighten die, and one less Trap die.

    Mythulhu
    Power: 5 Speed: 10 Hit Points: 9
    Aspects: Legendary, Non-Euclidean
    Weakness: Elder

    Injure: 1 dice (Burning Madness, Non-Euclidean)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Nothing to Attack, Non-Euclidean)
    Trap: 3 dice (What Are You Running From?, Non-Euclidean)
    Frighten: 3 dice (No Escape, Non-Euclidean)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: This thulhu actually does not exist--or does it? Some claim it is a force of madness, spreading itself from person to person on the winds of whispers and rumors, destroying people's souls with the gnawing question of its own existence. Others claim that it is merely a rumor, and that those who fall before it are nothing more than superstitious fools who let themselves be torn apart by silly little campfire stories.

    Randy heard mention of this 'thulhu in #347: Where Are You, Mythulhu?, in which he entered a town tearing itself apart in the fear of this Pokethulhu. Fans of the show probably still remember the amusing antics of Darrin Herbert, the thulhu trainer who was so terrified by the Mythulhu that he'd trapped himself within an airtight box, so that no thulhu could get at him. Thankfully, Randy and his friends were able to convince the town to get over their fears of nothing, and that Mythulhu had no real power unless people believed he existed. However, after our heroes left the town, the final shot of the episode showed Herbert, still in his box, with his soul and marrow sucked out. Some particularly avid fans have pointed out that Randy got directions to the town from an atlas in #346, but no maps in any future episodes show the town. Does Mythulhu exist? Keep watching more episodes to find out!

    The Color Out of Space
    Power: 8 Speed: 10 Hit Points: 6
    Aspects: Legendary, Elder
    Weakness: Fishy

    Injure: 2 dice (Monstrous Decay, Decomposing)
    Dodge: 2 dice (Blend, Non-Euclidean)
    Trap: 1 dice (Unnatural Blooms, Funguous)
    Frighten: 4 dice (Horrible Prismatics, Luminescent)

    Pokénomicon Excerpt: The Color Out of Space was featured in the 27th Pokethulu movie. A meteor of an unidentifiable substance crashed into a small farming village, poisoning the land and mutating the plants. The sources of the infestation (and the bizzare affliction of the townsfolk, causing them to become gray and withered monsters before turning into ash) were small bubbles of an indescribable color, all part of a single "organism" (or rather, spectrum). It began expanding its dominion over a wide tract of land, but Randy and Co. stopped it by removing it and the land it controlled to a pocket dimension, stranding the survivors and leaving naught but a field of strangely colored ashes in its place...

    The COoS is a large bubble, filled with (or possibly emitting?) an entirely unhealthy form of visible light. Its essence permeates the ground around it, allowing it some rudimentary control over plants, which become large, strangely colored, and otherwise just wrong. Its hue is not any sane color, and some flee in stark terror as soon as seeing it. It can fade from view at will. It can infuse its victims with its particular wavelength, causing them to wither into twisted, pitiable shells.
