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.

Like Dwarves, Froglings cannot use large or two-handed weapons but may use any other weapon or armor as indicated by class.

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 Labyrinth Lord.  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.

Due to the dangers lurking in their swampy home, Froglings may roll an extra die whenever the Labyrinth Lord tests for surprise.  The Frogling takes the better of the two results.

Froglings receive the following saving throw bonuses:

  • +4 vs poison
  • +1 vs wands
  • +2 vs spell and spell-like devices

Froglings are more resistant to poison than humans, and their somewhat fairy nature makes them more resistant to spells and incantations.

Froglings may select the following classes, with the indicated level limits.

Frogling thieves receive the following bonuses and penalties to thief abilities:

Pick Pockets-5%

*Frogling clerics are extremely rare, and they are always Lawful.  The Church of Law is always very proud of these converts and heaps great praise upon them, as well as lavish benefits.  St. Toad is said to be the first Frogling to have converted.
