Gillmen gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against non-aboleth enchantment spells and effects, but take a –2 penalty on such saving throws against aboleth sources.

Editor's Note

A light crossbow does not gain a damage bonus from high Strength.  The Ranged line should read:  light crossbow +2(1d8/x3).

GM's are encouraged to use this corrected stat.
