Fierce undead that were designed as weapons of war the Sea-sworn are fierce opponents out upon the ocean but quickly crumble into dust when on land.
Sea-sworn appear much like whatever creature they were originally with a few exceptions, firstly their skin looks more frog-like than before and drips with brackish sea water. Its hands and feet (if it had any) are webbed to make it a better swimmer. Its facial features (again if it had any) become blunted and less defined. Sea-sworn were most often created from Chelish marines so the most common sea-sworn appear as humans with frog like skin, blunted features and webbed hands. Due to their need for constant immersion in sea water sea-sworn are often covered with ocean detritus like seaweed and barnacles. Their smell also reflects their ocean dwelling nature as they stink of brine and muddy tidal flats.
Habitat & EcologyEdit
Sea-sworn always dwell in salt water, usually the ocean. Due to their very nature if they are taken out of this environment sea-sworn quickly wither to nothing. The only exception to their need to be in constant contact with salt water is boats, they can stay on a boat as long as the boat is on salt water, this allows the sea-sworn to attack ships making them a feared part of Cheliax's naval force and loathed by Andoran's navy. As undead their ecology is wholly unnatural, they have little impact on their surrounding environment as the do not need to eat. Sea-sworn are a type of undead that have been created within living memory. They were created by the necromancers of Cheliax to serve as a potent addition to Cheliax's navy. Even a small group of sea-sworn is more than capable of overwhelming an enemy ship. To curb the power of these potent warriors the necromancers of Cheliax created them with a powerful curse meaning if they left the oceans salty embrace then they would quickly wither into nothing.
