The amphin, a race of amphibious humanoids, have lived peacefully for generations in the depths of the seas, but their numbers have expanded, and their ammonite temple-caves can no longer hold their burgeoning numbers. The amphins' priests have set their sights upon Shandalar's shorelines, and their hunters have girded themselves for war. Meanwhile their mnemomages have infiltrated the sewers of each of the major cities. They have used their mind control powers to erase all knowledge of the amphins' existence from the minds of humanity. The near-universal ignorance of the amphin in every major university from Ardestan to Lesh is simultaneously evidence of the amphins' power, and of their nefarious intent.
