Not impressed with the devs choices…

I don’t think I’ll vote, I’m not keen on any of the choices. Giants are vastly under represented, so are elves, decent ones anyway. I’m not complaining, I didn’t really push any idea based on a kingdom forwards but nothing there really gets me thinking, ‘yes, we absolutely need this’.

I decided to keep it all in one place.

Thinking anglerfish head, humanoid torso, mechanical lowerbody flagella for fast agile propulsion. Very dark and sinister looking. Must have high tech weapon like lazer >.>

Theme would be experimental test subject to explore depths that merman could not normally access.

A humongous mechanical crab that looks like it was constructed by the sunken remains of crashed ships.

Edit: switched a couple words with each other

Electric Eel.

Q: What do you get when you let Adanan engineers surgically graft a non-electric eel into a 600-centaur-power body with an arc generator on one arm?

A: A very angry, very good reason to avoid going into the water.

I guess you could say, he’s in charge of current events.

Two ideas, probably not compatible with each other-

Mechanical Whale, with a crew of piraty fishfolk, could be part biological or all mechanical but would have to be Huge either way, or

Harpoon Gunner, old crusty fishguy with some biomechanical sights and a comically-oversized shoulder mounted Harpoon that looks stolen from Adana a decade ago.

Mech merefolk? Since that combination sucks, I’m thinking whirl pool something.

Instead of shiny metal - everything has to be rusty, jagged, greening, the kind of metal you would find in shipwrecks. It is covered with crustaceans, fish hooks, spikes, bits of large fish bone, seaweed that looks rather metalic, broken shells very clockwork in layering.

Sea horse bottom layering with the curl with a Aqua maleish upper half. Webbing for arms.
Helmet clearly covering the face, almost pointed at the top like a fin, and again covered as if it was a living host.

It’s a Sentinel
pictures below are just fragments of what I see with this, but gives you a good set of color palette, and visuals… with the armor covering the entire body.
