Froglings are frogs that walk and speak in the manner of men. They are short, only about 4' in height on average, and range between thin and stout. Froglings make their home in a distant, marshy country known as Hoppland; however, they are found throughout the World of Nightwick as brewers, merchants, and adventurers. Their skin ranges between slick and bumpy, and is usually a dull green or brown - though more exotic colors and patterns are not unheard of. They favor flamboyant clothing and jewelry in garish colors.
Racial Traits and Abilities
Froglings can see in starlight and moonlight just as a human can see at dusk. They retain the ability to distinguish color and some detail under these circumstances, though everything is cast in shadows. They have no enhanced vision underground, in torchlight, or under similar conditions of poor illumination.
Froglings can leap 30 feet horizontally or 15 feet vertically. Since their body is built to withstand leaps of this sort, they ignore the first thirty feet of falling damage, treating a fall of 40 feet as though it were only 10.
Froglings may also swim as fast as they can walk unless encumbered. They need less oxygen than other characters while swimming. The effects of this must be determined by the individual Castle Keeper. However, if they are in a dry climate, such as a desert, or a cold climate, such as a high mountain top, they take a -2 penalty to all actions due to their inability to function properly in such environments.
