Deep Dweller (Ex)

Deep ones suffer no ill effects from water pressure.

Devoted (Ex)

Deep ones roll twice on Mysticism checks and take the better of the two results.

Immortal (Ex)

Deep ones do not age. Barring death from violence, illness, or other unforeseen misfortune, they will live forever. They are immune to effects that cause magical aging.


Environment any water
Organization solitary, gang (2–5), cult (6–12), or shoal (13+)

Pureblood deep ones prefer to fight with their claws. If they do resort to manufactured weapons, they prefer piercing ones, as these function best underwater. They can also use wands and staves; deep ones who pursue the study of more powerful magic often learn to create magic items for their weaker kinfolk to wield.

A pureblood deep one typically stands about 7 feet tall, but its hunched gait and lumbering stance can make it appear shorter when it shambles ashore. An average deep one weighs 300 pounds.
