(So a little story) The world is covered almost in nothing but Ocean; some islands and 1 continent the size of Australia inhabit the surface a few races live up on the surface but most down in the deep Sea. Where long before the world had much more land then it does now. But one day a Colossal sized Kraken 3 times the regular size (180 feet tall but 80 ft wide) considered and strength by the name of Zerka rose up from the dark depths of the Razor Trench with their army and began destroying islands and continents forcing them into the sea unless they swore elegance to Him and his daughter a Krakenoid Pirah (humanoid is a Huge creature) and their 5 other children the mother had been killed off during the fight. Now Zerka and his army of Sealings are on the move to take over the Ocean and govern it how they see fit to.

Backstory: I grew up in a small village, deep in the ocean. I loved spending time at the temple of (god to be determined) when I was growing up. My parents were hunters, they wanted me to spend more time on hunts with them, but they approved of the education I was getting from the priests in the Temple, so let me "swim with my own fins", so to speak. One day, the priests invited me to go on a venture with them to a big gathering of followers of (god tbd). It was far away, but now that I was a little older, their was nothing my parents could do to hold me back. I love them, and miss them terribly, but I must forge my own path. After a few months, we got to the gathering. I learnt a lot from various other priests, clerics and paladins. We then heard news from home... or 'about' home.. the village was destroyed by Zerka and his armies. The priests from my village and I made our way to a new town with another group of followers. One day I hope to avenge my village, my friends and my parents!
This is the best I can think of for now, with the limited lore on this realm ;) I am open to building up some of the backstory a bit more with some more information from your world.
Great questions) So for this world to let all know there are about 4-5 Gods one of which is Neptune God of the Sea/Ocean looks like a watery Seahorseman basically keep it as is their is a God of the land Suzdar but has grown vasley weaker due to the way the world currently so lost their status pretty much it i said Zerka was able to cripple him to his knees and he is a Colossal size Sea Turtle whose legs are said to touch the bottom of the ocean who is way bigger then Zerka. many people lived on his back. Thunrin, God Of electricy/storms has a form of lightning only kinda looks like the elemental but can be any size she wants to be) Covnas a god of Evil Curses/spells and has a sister Lilos The good spells/blessing they look like yin and yang and are fish respectively black and white with the the reverse colored eye. Your Race is based off it's named animal in real life.
Backstory: Rawdet spent a great deal of time in a Estuarine colony on a disappearing atoll. The waters were warm and kept him active. He was a very active hunter and kept his folk well fed on his catches. His partner, Khem, was out hunting one day and never returned. Rawdet was sure that some kind of foul play was afoot as Khem was very punctual. He'd never been late before, let alone delayed by days. Rawdet has left the comfort of the atoll to attempt to track down his missing partner, a rage building inside him as he struggles to maintain a semblance of peace.
Hi! I’m currently at work right now so I hope you don’t mind me rolling my scores and editing this post once I get home. I know I’d like to be a mermaid but as for class, backstory, etc, I’d have to come back to it, so I hope that’s okay!
Ability scores: 121112131413
Just a quick question, do your mermaids have legs or is it strictly tails? And is there a way I can see your mermaid homebrew? I unfortunately can’t see it in the homebrew tab :(
Name: Sirena Asrai
Alignment: Neutral Good
Backstory: Ever since she was a little fry, Sirena had always found herself yearning to learn more about the world around her, whether it be in the deepest depths of the ocean or in those small islands she manages to find when swimming off for new adventures. No distance will stop her from her curiosity and need to explore, even if her customs aren't the same as others. She's willing to defend those places in times of need, no matter the cost.
Backstory: Having been a bit of a problematic child, Althaea went against her parents wishes and learned to fight. It became a hobby for her, she didn't really find interest in anything else other than strengthening her mind and body. She lost her friends, her family disowned her. Not that she really cared, she wouldn't allow herself to regret the decision, believing it to be her calling. It has not been long since then and she has been traveling, though she knows she cannot make it far just by herself.
Backstory: His egg abandoned due to predators, Darious of Clutch Froppy Pop has survived in the murkiest waters anyone has ever known. He has two goals, become the greatest killer in the world and retire like a Toad Boss.
Darius, Althaea, Sirena, Rawdet and Aeoli You all start off down in the depths of the Clear Blue Ocean medium to 50 ft higher of depth. You all arrive alone not together in the village Chloral you are all in is surrounded by a coral reef the corals being many different colors from Copper Red to Purples and even Green these colors help reflect light from the surfaces sun looking like their is a undersea Sun over the villages and cites nearby same with the Moon light that reflects has the opposite effect an undersea Moon. The houses are made inside are made of some rocks with seaweed roofs some semi detach are into some sea Anemone which are also very in different colors. There are other villages nearby which would take about 1 to 2 days travel. (When you enter a Shop or Tavern in this world their is a bubble surrounding the building you enter in from that makes it walk-able inside. Mermaid like creatures that get feet when enter not long after get a choice if they want a water bubble that floats a certain height in the place off the ground so they have their tail and can move around as in the water but are levitating well only inside these bubbles pop once you leave.) This village has a Minor Potion/Alchemy Shop, a Blacksmith, one Tavern, a Library and a Village Hall where the head of the village stays. Rawdet your welcomed into the village as is everyones else but most of the villagers as I mentioned are a little at uneasy by your presence.
The tavern does have posts of wanted individuals and some groups of underwater bandits and pirates some are worth more coin then others but a notable difficult tasks. As for killings from the criminal side of things things very.
Sirena could be seen swimming about the town, bright blue eyes wide in wonder with a beaming smile on her face. After wandering around the town and noting where each kind of shop was around, she would settle on heading into the library to find some books on this towns history, and if given the chance, she would also like to take some notes as well, happily humming a quiet tune to herself while doing so.

Althaea wanders around the town curiously, keeping to herself a bit before making her way to a tavern and ordering a drink for herself. Sitting down in a far corner, taking time to relax for once and think about where to go now that she has made it here.
(Careful about how your character does things) There is one solo assassination/hitman jobs that are single targets in the Village and around the area one is the local tax collector most in the village doesn't like them as they directly tax for Zerka and they will mention if taxes aren't being paid if it's an individual they deal with it.
Sirena You enter the library the librarian would you like a hover bubble or to walk? Upon you answer you head down and you see the shelves of books and sections labeled. You end up getting to the history section there is tons of books on different places and figures even but there is about 3 on this Villages History one old the others more new. When you start reading I'll privately message you what they say as the others aren't with you.
Althaea The barmaid serves you the Thank you for coming what kind of drink do you prefer we serve mead, saka and beer and have a sgreat selection of food on our menu.there are some local games going on in there gambling, darts and pool, chess.
Darius would like to take the job on the tax collector and spend his time researching everything about his target. Using information from public knowledge he would like to mock up the tax collector's daily schedule. Investigation11.
