Another series that made it to the proposal stage was Oblivion Seas. It was inspired by the writing of William Hope Hodgson, especially the novel The Boats of the Glen Carrig. The series was to feature the adventures of a band of castaways trapped in the Sargasso Sea. One of the menaces that they must overcome were “weedmen”, intelligent amphibious creatures that liked the taste of human blood. Hodgson was somewhat vague in his description of the creatures; they seemed to have aspects of human shape but weren’t strictly humanoid.
