Default Re: Furbeasts, Deep Ones, Whersports, & Avians

I'm guessing the deep ones are some relative of the six-limbed fossils that the survey teams flagged up as the ancestor of wherries and flits. I toyed with the idea in Regicide - a weird, rare deep ocean crypto-whale that only surfaces once in a blue moon and steers clear of the coast, the sort of thing fisherfolk would only see as corpses every now and then, or on extended open ocean crossings. Sheer speculation, really, because they only get the single passing mention in the books.
