[RPG] What makes a creature Aberrant


Aberrant creatures are native to or corrupted by the Far Realm. But what other than origin makes something thematically of the Far Realm?

Best Answer

Lovecraftian thematics, mostly.

Does it have tentacles? Can it be described as "squamous", "rugose", "cyclopean", "fetid", "Lovecraftian", or "obscene"? Does it have ichor? Is it beyond mortal comprehension, or a manner of thing which mortal men would do better to remain ignorant of? Does it shatter one's notions of a tidy, understandable universe?

If you answered "Yes" to one or more of these questions, it may be something from the Far Realm!
