Ok the rule system we are using doesnt have shamen, but how does this sound
You would be generally clasified as a "cleric of the Shark God with the following abilities
You are a spontanious caster and dont need to memeorize your spell
You can cast 4 first level spells a day from the following list
Cure Light woulnds= d8 plus L points
Doom= victum is -2 to everything
Shark spirit= do extra d6 damage after you have sucsedded your attack roll, or do 3d6 extra if you sacrifice 5 hit points(you have 9)
Banish spirit= does damage to undead (varies)
You can also do the following rituals that take one hour to cast, you only need a small fire to cast these
Predict Weather
Augury(ask one yes or no question of Shark God)
Contact Spirit (general dead/animal spirit/ ghost talking)

Yes, we are very very formal here. So formal that it is a formality stabbed staight into the femoral artery.

Glad you introduced yourself in the forums, we needed a little kick.

Ok roll 3d6 and arrange them as you want(Strength Dexterity, Wisdom, Intellect, Constitution, and charisma) replace your highest roll with a "16" if desired, replace your second highest roll with a "13" as desired. generate Luck by rolling 2 d6 and add the higher one to 6 post your tribe here, keeping in mind you are going on a long sea voyage to unknown lands Sanity is equal to your wisdom score(starting)

Cavern of Inane Natter / What does Eldritch Horror mean to you?

Going to the dictionaries tells us "Eldritch" (adjective) means, 'strange and sinister', 'weird and malevolent' or just plain 'eerie'. Horror (noun) can mean an object that induces horror: something repulsive or terrifying. By these definitions, if you use the term "Eldritch Horror" to describe a style of writing or storytelling it would be synonymous with the descriptions of gothic literature.

Gothic: of or relating to a style of fiction characterized by the use of desolate or remote settings and macabre, mysterious, or violent incidents

Clearly Lovecraft was writing in the gothic tradition, and since he tended to be a 'teller' not a 'shower' he used every synonym for strange the English language has. But I feel that the current cultural definition of Eldritch Horror is something more specific than just something eerie and terrifying. Has the ghost of Lovecraft claimed the adjective Eldritch as his own? I would really like to hear the opinions of other Strolenesians on this topic.

With Eldritch Horror as the front-runner, I'm taking some steps to prepare for this I just picked up the Anthology, American Gothic Tales.  This includes those you would have expected Lovecraft, Poe, Stephen King, and Ray Bradbury but Robert Chambers (who Muro introduced me to) noticeably missing.
