Merfolk are the nimble, amphibious humanoids who defend the Shoals from interlopers. They are only lightly armoured, but many carry decent polearms, and some even carry throwing nets or javelins. Be careful not to face them in the water, as they gain combat bonuses when in their own element.
Merfolk have different professions, granting them unique powers.
