If this is a test of the new template, it works, though traditionally, there's a space between hit dice and the bonus (or penalty) from Constitution (i.e. 3d8 + 12, not 3d8+12). SirSprinkles (talk) 12:56, 1 March 2017 (MST)

Also, is there any reason why this elite warrior isn't wearing any armour? Not even hide or scale mail? SirSprinkles (talk) 15:23, 2 March 2017 (MST)
From the SRD page on merfolk: "Merfolk lack the materials and practical means to forge weapons beneath the waves." Hide armor might be within reason, though I presume it would be made from blubber or something. That seemed kind of sketchy to me, so I left them unarmored like SRD merfolk. — Guy (talk | edits) 18:56, 2 March 2017 (MST)
Armour doesn't have to be made from metal. Perhaps scale mail could be made from shells and scavenged bits of bone and metal or made from monster scales, or they wear mismatched bits of metal armour treated to survive seawater. SirSprinkles (talk) 01:45, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
Hm, I suppose that's true. I've edited the page accordingly. Thanks for the suggestion. — Guy (talk | edits) 04:12, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
