|MoN-92: Fishers from Outside [C]|
|Forced Response: after Fishers from Outside enters play, choose an exhausted character. Return that character to its owner's hand.|
The Fishers from Outside first appeared in the story The Outpost (H.P. Lovecraft, ?).
The Fishers from Outside are creatures from outer space which the explorer Slauenwaite credited with building the ruins of Zimbabwe. These beings presumably at one time had a great interstellar empire, of which the Zimbabwe cities are only the merest outposts. The Fishers may serve Tsathoggua and Cthulhu. Some have stated that the Fishers are shantaks, though these are usually considered to be unintelligent and thought to live only in the Dreamlands. Whatever the true nature of the Fishers, the natives realize the danger of such places, and shun them whenever possible.
