I do like, from the picture, the idea of carving runes into the shell. This may be an option available to tortles like tattooing and might be suggestive of a circle / prestige class / class / etc like the Jennite Tattooist or the Totemic Demonslayer from the Savage Tide Adventure Path.

To your point, Shawn, Matt Mercer's tortle from Critical Role (Orly Skiffback, mentioned in another thread), does just that sort of thing- create magical tattoos. I don't think he tattoos them on his shell, rather on his arms, but I don't see any particular reason why a tortle couldn't do so (aside from just being able to reach, if it is your own shell.)

Yeah, you would need some help with that - a manic cult seems likely.

I can't seem to find Krull the Tortle in Descent to Avernus. Was he cut from the final version or is he in there somewhere?

Ah, thanks! I found it.

I don't see much there that could be raided to use for Mystara, sadly. Krull is a Cleric of Tiamat. If we want to make him a Mystaran character (which he may actually have been in Manganiello's campaign), could we make him a Cleric of Pearl? (Or Shaman in BECMI terms)?

Idris might work better than Pearl. For Red Steel, Krull could either be a fighter with the Defender kit or a cleric with the War Priest kit (while tortles are "never War Priests" according to the boxed set, snappers should be able to take the kit and I agree with the opinion that Krull seems very snapper-like).

I could see Idris working too. I have at times theorized that they could be the same entity, but having more Draconic Immortals is never a bad thing?

Cool observation about Tortles never having war priests. The consensus does indeed seem to be that Krull is a Snapper.

There's a separate thread about adapting Arkhan, Krull and their other companions to a Mystara background here. :)
