Living within the rough oceans of Erridose, Ocean Pikins are experts at deep water fishing and diving, using tridents and armor fashioned from sharp coral, along with crude netting to catch their prey. In order to keep themselves unencumbered, they prefer to keep their armor light so that they are able to move easily in the strong currents. They will eat whatever their nets capture so one should always be wary of finding themselves caught in their watery traps. Natural swimmers thanks to their webbed hands and feet, this breed worships the god of water, Elveig, and pray twice daily to him.
Leadership in Ocean Pikins tribes is contested once a year via deep water combat. Every year on the same day, the toughest warriors gather for a single elimination combat tournament with the winner earning the right to lead the tribe for the next year. It’s rare that the same leader emerges victorious two years in a row however.
Naturally, trade and relations are difficult for other breeds of Pikins who wish to deal with the oceanic tribes due to the fact that they rarely come up onto land. Ocean Pikins have been known to deal with their cousins who live in and near rivers but other than that, they tend to stick close to home and choose to not interact with other tribes.
