  • Tempest Breath (Recharges on a Short or Long Rest). The gullkin exhales a lungful of air in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must succeed on a DC 11 Strength saving throw or be pushed up to 15 feet away from the gullkin.


As they flap their wings over the ocean surface, birdlike creatures draw back javelins to hurl at their prey below.

Gullkin are birdlike humanoids who live in small, floating homes on the surface of the Elemental Plane of Water. Their strong wings allow them to fly long distances, and their powerful breath pushes their foes across the battlefield.

Aquatic Hunters. While gullkin live on the surface of the water, they hunt for fish, whales, and other seafood living underwater. Gullkin can dive below the surface for short periods of time to hunt their quarry.

Enthusiastic Explorers. Gullkin must seek out new fishing grounds and trading partners to sustain their populations. It is not uncommon to find gullkin pathfinders scouting out new opportunities at ports of call.

Gullkin Outposts. While exploring different planes, the gullkin establish outposts in each location. Those who remain at these outposts trade with the locals, and it’s not uncommon for the gullkin to defend their allies when those allies are threatened.
