Worshipers and Clergy

Schala's worshipers are typically tribesfolk living on the banks of a great river or swamp, although fishermen, river guides, Sailors and smugglers frequently offer her prayers as well. Most tribes that follow the Sea Maiden simply want to avoid outsiders, even when they are a typically aggressive race, such as gnolls or orcs. When friendly relations can be established, few beings make a better river guide than a cleric of Schala. Worshipers of Schala often have an odd relationship with lizardfolk. While the reptiles do not worship Schala, they accept her followers as tribesmembers, and work together for mutual defense. The lizardfolk are able to navigate Schala's waters freely, without fear of getting lost or encountering the plant monsters that so often attack non-worshipers. Boggards hate and fear Schala's followers, and attempt to harass them at every turn. A boggard tribe often migrates rather than engage in warfare with the people of Schala.

Schala's clerics wear sea green vestments.
