finally a design that makes these guys intimidating, i love how they look like rays but with alien features that make clear they are more dangerous.

Not on the boat, something under the boat is going to be the lucky one.

Wow, the vampire manta ray demons are back? I thought they'd always be another silly monster hidden within the pages of 1st edition manuals.
And it looks terrifying to boot.
Now I really want a copy of the Demonomicon.
