A perfect example of why we don't mix Lovecraft with sci-fi. Every hero I've seen in my games wouldn't stand a chance against these things. They're just too weird and powerful.

I love it.

These creatures are meant to be disruptive; They defy the puny laws of our physical universe. The only laws they need to obey are those of game balance, so I may scale them back if other complain about the same thing. Technomagic adds a new, exciting dimension to sci-fi beyond just the latest gadget.

It's an interesting high-powered concept, something like the Servitors in Whispering Vault. To me some of Lovecraft's more science-fictional work indeed has a similar feel to this.

I think you've justified well the odd mechanics of the skill and provided a useful background that could fit into a variety of settings as a new direction for a campaign. You've got a set of good descriptions for the simple, feeble-minded but physically aberrant lifeforms of Alterrealm.

A quick glance and I can see incorporating this into a PL7 HPL game. I liked enough of what I saw to save it to my hard drive!
