Apostle of the Church of Crabbo[edit]

One of the apostles hands is covered in a red bandage that is never removed for any reason whatsoever. The player knows what is under it.

Skill Proficiencies: History, Nature

Tool Proficiencies: None

Languages: Common, Merfolk, Deep speech

Equipment: plate armor, tidestone

Trait: Waterborn[edit]

The apostle, due to spending considerable amount of time in and around water and the magically saturated lands of the church's homeland, is able to breath underwater, and swim faster than your average human (x2 movement when in water).

Alternate Feature: Sayin'r[edit]

The apostle bears the mark of the church and as such is accompanied by a watermelon-sized crab which can be commanded mentally to perform any non-magical task up to a range of 30ft from the aspostle.
