Merfolk speak Common and Aquan.


Merfolk favor heavy crossbows of shell and coral that fire bolts fashioned from blowfish spines, with an underwater range of 30 yards. Merfolk often barrage their enemies before closing, when they resort to tridents.

Merfolk Characters

A merfolk's favored class is bard. Merfolk clerics can choose two of the following domains: Animal, Protection, and Water.
