Marines are ship borne soldiers who can be found in the Imperial fleet and onboard larger private vessels. They protect ships from pirates, Norse maruaders, and other similar raiders. Unlike seamen, whose primary duty is sailing the ship, Marines are onboard only to fight. When in port, Marines often form press gangs to fill out the ships crew. More than one unsuspecting citizen has awoken at sea after taken a belaying pin to the head from a press ganger. Due to these activities and their own drunken brawling, Marines are resented in many seaside communities. When raiders strike however, these same citizens are quick to accept the aid of the battle-hardened Marines.
NOTE: If you take Common Knowledge (Wasteland) during character creation, your character can be from the great port of Marienburg at your option.
NOTE: Marine Weapon Group is Bow, Crossbow, Dagger, Blades, Gaffs, and Belyaing Pins
