Some Nauticans bear reptilian like spines on their backs and crests on their heads. never again to achieve the greatness of the old ocean empire. The Nauticans nurtured a symbiotic relationship with the marine life around them and together they shared the fruits of the seas and the protection that many . Indeed. were fought and Chaos all but destroyed the once proud underwater civilisation. The tectonic plates parted under the Chaos pressures and the Nauticans world was torn asunder by submarine quakes.Draft 5. Lesser daemons and heralds were sent hither and thither and were ever intent on searching out the hidden people of the ocean world. Typically a Nautican noble will stand slightly bowed but six feet in height when fully upright. protected from the outside world with what remained of their elemental magics. learning to work in alliance with ocean creatures and in unison with the natural ways of the deep.0 The Nauticans The deep ocean empire of Nautica was established many thousands of years ago before the inhospitable surface world was fully formed. the Nauticans have not even been part of history until now! The first incursion from the realms of Chaos was almost cataclysmic for the Nauticans. these are seen as marks of knowledge. wisdom and experience that may extend for up to a millenia in man years. For millenia the Nauticans were successful in their endeavours and they lived peacefully. Thanks to the Mermaids and Sirens who sensed the turn of evil some of the Nautican leaders were saved before their final underwater enclave was discovered and the gates of Chaos opened. their survival depended on it. The Nautican's wide jaws host gills that they can use to breathe underwater or to syphon the surface air for the short hours* they can survive out of water before they need to return for vital salts and nutrients. What remained of the Nautican princes and nobles hid themselves in deep ocean trenches. As the Chaos incursions ravaged the surface world the Nauticans were ever vigilant and made every effort to protect the ocean floor and keep their presence in the world a secret. Page 4 . The Nauticans remained a small race. Most Nauticans have black eyes that can see deep into the dark ocean depths. wrists and ankles that all help to streamline their bodies for ocean life. Their presence on land is helped by the powerful elemental magic that surrounds the Nautican army and keeps the air moist and cool. It was inevitable that the Nauticans would come into contact with the surface dwellers. The deep had become uninhabitable. As the ages passed the Nauticans established small princedoms and provinces in secret places on the ocean beds beyond the minds or imagination of any surface dweller or even the Daemons of Chaos. for which the Nauticans were ill prepared. their hands and feet are usually webbed and they bear residual scales on their necks. Terrible underwater wars. The Nautican seers believe their race are the ancestors of the humans and the Elves and that the Nautican people have some great part to play before the end of times when the seas will once again engulf the world. devastating currents and grotesque underwater daemons intent on reaping their foul God's will. The Nautican Form The Nautican nobility and their people are bipods and are generally similar in stature to humans and elves although just like other creatures of the deep their appearance is as variable as the oceans they inhabit. Long the Nauticans lived in peace but the Chaos Gods had not forgotten the sea dwellers and their first underwater wars. the Nauticans had no choice but to find safe dwellings in shallower coastal waters. * Nauticans are able to breathe the surface airs for several hours at a time albeit not comfortably. The old Nautican Empire pre-dates the histories of all the surface dwelling races and the very existence of the oldest land based creatures.

Roll to hit as normal, a granite crush attack causes a single str10 hit resulting in D3 wounds. The crush is so traumatic that the enemy cannot use a Regenerate save.
