A shard of alien malignity!

An utterly otherworldly creature, a twisted and chaotic amalgamation of flesh, bone and crystal, so hideous and malformed that it has no place in this world. Formed from hideously mutated flesh and crystal, with multiple limbs and disgusting appendages, this hulking abominable mutant is able cross the barrier separating the Farmstead from the rest of the State and wreak havoc wherever it wanders. How it is able to exist within our world with such an alien physiology is perplexing that no sane mind can understand.

Some believe that this thing to be a hybrid, a unforeseen mutation born from the chaotic conflict between natural laws and forces of our world and whatever place the Comet came from. Other think that Crystalline Corruption has somehow adapted to our world by assimilating the biological aspects and traits from the lifeforms native to our world. Maybe this abomination comes from the future, brought to our present time by the distortions in space and time caused by the Comet. Or is it possible that this thing is a piece of great terror that sleeps inside the Old Mill, wanting to explore beyond the boundary of it already conquered domain that it has figured out by wearing all those corpses like some kind of suit it can protect itself against natural laws and forces of our world, allowing it to leave the limited confounds of it’s domain.

Whatever this Thing is, it seeks to absorb and assimilate the flesh and bones of those it kills into it’s misshapen body and spreading the Crystalline Corruption beyond the Farmstead. Many people and beasts have been killed and assimilated, become part of Thing’s anatomy and many more will share this fate if it is not stopped. However, vanquishing this foe may prove more difficult than expected as it has more of it flesh get destroyed more of the hard layer of stone and crystal underneath it hide gets exposed, acting like amour against attacks of your heroes.

This Thing From The Stars has no place in this World, let’s send it back to the stars where it came from!

 Behaviour

The Thing From The Stars is an Eldritch Boss found in any location where it is patrolling for the week (spawn not guaranteed) - this is visible on the estate map when embarking. It can appear as a fight in any hallway.

It has 2 actions per each round, and an automatic action at the start of each round that triggers the Return to the Stars, which hits all party members with Stress damage. This attack also spawns a Crystalline Aberration. This attack does not trigger bleed/blight damage on The Thing From The Stars, but all other attacks do.

 Strategies

The Thing From The Stars has two phases:

  • During the first phase, it will deal classical attacks.
  • When it reaches 45% HP, it receives a permanent buff which gives it +80% PROT, +6 SPD, +40% DMG and +15% CRIT. Therefore, normal attacks will not be very effective.

Thus, there are two ways to take him down:

  • Blight and Bleed damage is highly effective, since it's got low resistances and high speed - you'll usually trigger all your damage within 1-2 rounds at most, though ensure you have enough chance to bypass resistances to them on higher levels.
  • Some heroes' abilities can bypass its protection, like Grave Robber's Pick to the Face or Shieldbreaker's Pierce.

Furthermore, each turn it will summon a Crystalline Aberration, so you'll need to deal with it in good time to prevent it from exploding - using a dedicated high-damage character is recommended to keep it cleared (or the one which doesn't deal huge damage on the boss). Note that Abberations are also vulnerable to blight, but you only get one turn to kill them, so ensure you can stack enough damage to finish them if using blight.

Take notice that Debuffs are not very effective as the individual attacks aren't the biggest danger with this boss, and they wear off too quickly for prolonged damage-dealing using them.

When The Thing uses Return to the Stars, if will move to the rear of the summoned minion(s), so ensure you can strike the furthest rows on your primary damage dealers (or clear the Aberrations first).

Apart from Return to the Stars, it will also regularly Debuff, Stun and Blight individual party members. Weakening Shard reduces all your resistances and Transfixing Shard reduces Damage and Speed.

All its attacks inflict stress damage - and so long as you can keep control of the Aberrations, you are in far greater danger from Stress than HP loss in this fight.
