Seafoam Kender

D&D 4e Rules

by KenderBryant

Seafoam kender didn't come around until Brynseldimir used his magic to corrupt the seas around Dimernost and Dargonost. The magical power flowed into the seaside villages, Sandpiper, Seastar, and Gill, all kender villages, changing the kender there forever. The kender now enjoy their dual lives as amphibious creatures living on both land and in the sea, as it gives them a whole new avenue that was never fully explored by any fully-terrestrial kender. Seafoam kender, having adapted to their new double life above and below the waves, have started changing over the years. Their hands and feet are webbed (this is from the magic), and their hair and skin have taken on different coloration. Seafoam kender have started to exhibit hair in aquatic hues such as blue, aquamarine, and green. Their skin is paler and more susceptible to sunburn. Eye colors usually run the gamut of their hair colors.
