31 Nights of Halloween: The Shoal for the Cypher System

"Why would they build there?  Oh, pyrostrontium.  The cloud fish reproductive cycle creates it?  And they only hatch every 17 years?
So we need to protect this species then.  Make sure the cycle continues, pyrostrontium is in high demand after all."

THE SHOAL 5 (18)

Motive: To feed
Environment: Sandbanks of the Tellurite River, every 17 years
Health: 18
Damage Inflicted: Swarm (5), Individual (1)
Armor: 0
Movement: Short
Modifications: Might defense 6, Speed defense 3

Combat: Every 17 years the young of the horizon cloud fish, known as a shoal, hatch and make their way west to the Otarran Moon Bridge and up into the clouds.
Eating Machines: Any creature that rolls a 1 or 2 on a defense roll moves 1 step down the Damage track.
Swarm: Any creature that rolls a 1 or 2 on an attack roll loses 1 Edge from Speed.
Use: A freak ion storm has caused the evacuation of several towns in the path of the shoal to be slowed down, and an ancient soothsayer says that the Violet Moon will make them hatch early.
Loot: --
