Parasite "The sea has boundless patience and does not like to be restrained"

1
You possess an extra appendage.
Used by The Fisher of Men, Created by BOMBSHELL2150.

Beneath the low glistening hood of the old sailor's rain slicker lay a gray swollen face and unkempt white beard. The lips part to reveal a bloated tan arthropod instead of a tongue. It fills his mouth and throat, repositioning the bulk of it's body into his torso. It's nerve endings mercilessly burrowed into the poor sailor's brain. The swollen eyes widen slightly and the flesh beneath the chest roils and ripples as a thick tentacle bursts from the open mouth, covered in curved spines.

When the glaciers melted and the forgotten ages trapped within released their bounty into the warming oceans, eldritch waves crashed against mankind's shores.
