The Changers

Sometimes science goes wrong- or worse yet, as in the case of the Changers, scientists go wrong. The Changers are a mysterious group of vivisectionists who delight in capturing creatures of all sorts and types and performing strange experiments upon them. Sometimes, they switch out hands for flippers, or give a beautiful maiden the head of an ant, or the stink of a decaying corpse. On other occasions, they release someone with virtually no physical changes, but with new and unwholesome appetites or manias. If it can be imagined, the Changers have likely done it to some unfortunate creature at one time or another.

Although they are based in the Southern Ruingulf on the island that bears their name, the Changers have access to large areas of the ME, because they understand the mostly unused network of Teleportation Pools and are accomplished at avoiding or negating the many dangers of the Between Sea. They delight in exploring new territory and collecting unique "specimens". No one can say what a Changer is likely to look like, because they have altered themselves as well.

Note- Posting should pick back up here shortly. I'm a grad student and this is a busy time in an especially crucial year.
