MOONBEAST

Business-minded slavers from the dark side of the moon

There around a hideous fire fed by the obnoxious stems of lunar fungi, there squatted a stinking circle of the toadlike moonbeasts and their almost-human slaves.

Moonbeasts are gray, gelatinous creatures resembling toads, but with pink tentacles growing from their blunt faces. They emit a nauseating stench. They delight in torture and the death of other entities and have a reputation for cruelty and lack of compassion. They have enslaved the Folk of Leng, who serve as crew for their black galleys. The Moonbeasts themselves sit unseen at the oars, propelling the galleys with inhuman surface speed and strength, despite the fact that they cannot swim. Their home is the dark side of the moon, where they dwell in stone cities in windowless structures. They serve Nyarlathotep, the terror of infinite forms and messenger of the other gods.

SPECIAL POWERS 

Frenzy: Once Moonbeasts can taste the blood of their opponents, they unleash a kind of frenzied fighting zeal. They can then make two melee attacks at once with a penalty of -20%.

Leap: Moonbeasts are capable of jumping more than 10 feet from a standing start and more than 20 feet with a running start. Athletics determines whether they can perform another action in the same turn.

Yog-Sothothery: Moonbeasts, despite their appearance and all the terrible stories about them, lead largely structured lives in a solid social setting. They are busy traders, making the Folk of Leng work for them as slaves (and occasionally eating them), and are able to maintain trade routes via their Black Galleys between the Moon and the Dreamlands.

They are close to Nyarlathotep in this regard, and it is more than likely that within a community of Moonbeasts there are also priests of Creeping Chaos who are responsible for the spiritual leadership of their community.
