There's something in the water! What is it? It looked like a man...

Introducing, the Gill-man, a slippery fish out of water

There are many strange creatures and dangers hiding in the darkest depths of the sea   a Gill-man is a little bit of both. Seldom do they emerge from the water, as the oceans  provide everything they need to survive - sustenance and obscurity. They are known  mostly as a sailor’s myth, blamed for sinking small ships.

When you play a Gill-man, you earn xp when you address a challenge with slipperiness or stealth. Crews looking for a greaseman should consider this  slippery scoundrel who mixes well with water. They are naturally averse to detection,  keeping potential heat to a minimum. They must be stealthy, you’ve never seen one until now.

What compelled you to leave the water? What do you expect to find on land? Are you Tycherosi? Perhaps from a more pure Demon bloodline? Were you cursed by a Gillyfoot?
