Froglings for Advanced Campaigns Part II: Vital Statistics

St. Toad during his more venerable years

Froglings are comparatively short-lived.  While a few live as old as the oldest humans, most only live to their early-to-mid 60s.  Unlike humans, they reach maturity much faster and are usually fully fit adults by age 15.  Despite this early physical maturity, Froglings tend to be brave and brash due to their lack of experience.

Frogling Characters age as described below.

Age 14 + 1d6
Age Categories: (A) 12 - 14; (Ad) 15 - 30; (M) 31 - 45; (E) 46 - 60; (V) 61 - 75

To determine the height and weight of a frogling character, roll 1d6.  On a roll of a 1-3, the modifier is subtracted from the base height weight.  On a 4-6, the modifier is added to the base height or weight.  Roll separately for both height and weight.

This information is meant to be used in conjunction with either the frogling class presented here or the AEC style frogling race presented here.  A document combining both the frogling race write up and this material - as well as a few changes suggested by readers to make it more compatible with AD&D and OSRIC - may be found here or in the Documents sidebar to the right.


  1. Good stuff! St. Toad in the fullness of his years as certainly learned the axiom "accessories make the outfit."

  2. Indeed. I've been considering nicking your frogling idea for my own games for a good year or two now.
