When not in combat, Marked Men can travel in Darkwater twice as fast as their speed would normally allow.

Intimidating Presence.
While in Darkwater, as an action, a Marked Man can cause each creature within a 10-foot cube, originating from them, to make a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw. The creatures that fail their saving throw are either charmed or frightened by the Marked Man until the end of his turn. Creatures that make their saving throw are immune to this effect from all Marked Men until they finish a short or long rest.

While in Darkwater, Marked Men cannot be charmed or frightened.

Marked Men make two melee attacks.

Shortsword. Melee. +6 to hit; deals 1d6 +2 piercing damage.

The Marked Men are the special agents of the Masked King of Darkwater. They are chosen as children, given special training and run through a gamut of grueling tests. Those who survive earn the complicated tattoos that cover their faces and are endowed with special abilities while within the city walls.
Within Darkwater, Marked Men rank directly below the Masked King and answer only to his authority. They can go where they please and are empowered to command both the City Watch and the City Guard.
Interfering with, assaulting or murdering a Marked Man is a death penalty offense.
