Unearthed Arcana: Character Options for a High Seas Campaign

As some of you might know, I run a waterborne campaign of my own in my Vodari setting. In the latest Unearthed Arcana, Mike Mearls has provided some great options for your seafaring adventures. I actually set-up Minotaurs and Swashbucklers for my campaign… but this take is great and my Swashbuckler was clearly inferior. The Mariner fighting style and Storm Sorcerer are great player options for a waterborne campaign too.

Salt in the Blood: Oceanic Bloodline for 5th ed Sorcerers

Sorcerous Origins (Oceanic)

Sorcerers draw their magical power from a variety of sources. Some are the result of an unusual bloodline (draconic), while others tap into powerful arcane or divine forces (wild magic). Sorcerers who manifest powers from an oceanic origin may have had their bloodline affected by a powerful creature such as an aboleth, bronze dragon, elemental, hag, or kraken, or may have learned to tap into the primal energy inherent to the most fundamental element of life.
