    There is also an inconsistency in the appearance of skum. The original Styles illustration features skum from earlier editions, who look like fish-men (very similar to kua-toa). The description in the GoS appendix has an illustration for much more aboleth-like skum, which is more interesting and less like other monsters. However, the text in The Styles refers to the tracks of "webbed feet", like the old skum. The new skum presented in the appendix have no feet, webbed or otherwise.

    I don't think I used skum from earlier editions. But I think the art in the description is the full blown skum. And in Styles the monsters are humans who are morphing into skum. Boy did they get the lame power rangers ring.

    Isn't it also a case of them reusing the original artwork from Dungeon for the Styes?

    The adventure uses original artwork, and the text in the adventure matches that. It's the Appendix illustration which is completely different from both.

    In the end, I actually used some google-searched illustrations of Deep Ones, which are creepier than either.

    One of the AL moderator replied to my thread in the DM AL Discussion FB page about this. She was looking into it but said just place it wherever. I posted back your info.

    In other words, there is a great big hole, and the Adventurers' League are looking into it...
