The Summer Empire
Salu, People of the Sea
The People of the Sea are a breed of perihumanity who can breathe normally in fresh or salt water, as long as the water is not stagnant or seriously polluted. They have blue green skin and hair that ranges from pale to dark, but which always contains a green tint. They have webbing on their toes and the first joint of their fingers, and large fluted ears. They can swim as easily as
they can walk and swim twice as fast as adni. However, they require more water than others and suffer a -1 penalty to Survival rolls in dry and arid climates. The People of the Sea can be Thaumaturges and Skinthieves (usually of aquatic animals or sea birds), and there are a few Dhampiri. However, they cannot be Wolf-Blooded. They are typically well-regarded, especially by coastal people and people who work on rivers. There is almost no prejudice against them. People of the Sea is specifically not a supernatural template.
