    Default Whales Ate My Family [New Flaw]

    Whales Ate My Family

    You suffer from a crippling phobia of cetaceans and the ocean (or any large body of salt water; inland salt lakes). You are gripped with visible extreme rigidity any time the ocean comes into view, at least 120 feet away, or if the tang of salt spray greets your nostrils.

    Effect
    You take a -4 penalty to any attacks made and damage caused by cetaceans against you. By the third round, you may greater rage against the provoking cetacean.
    You take a -2 penalty to any attribute, skill and ability check anytime you are within 120 feet of a large body of salt water, and always act with a -4 Initiative penalty. You are always slowed when within oceanic view.

    Special
    Your family must be eaten by whales to possess this flaw.
    To see the world in a grain of sand
    and Heaven in a wild flower
    To hold infinity in the palm of your hand
    and eternity in an hour.

    - William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

    The greatest part about this flaw is that you can swap "Whales" for "Crabs" and "Cetaceans" with "Crustaceans" and it'd be just fine.

    In fact, it'd be scarier.

    Not really. I'd rather believe it about crabs than whales.

    With the effective DR 4/- and +4 AC against attacks from cetacean's this MIGHT almost qualify as a Trait... of course if you are playing in the middle of a desert it is pure Cheese.
    (I am completely missing the point, right?)

    Playing The Sims Medieval, eh? Seems like a pretty interesting flaw, though.
