D&D is full of evil little frog guys. But little frog guys don't have to be evil, right?
Froschlings are anthropomorphic frogs, standing between three and four feet tall. They typically have green skin with black mottling, although skin colors ranging from blue to brown are known. They have distinct round typanums behind their eyes, with which they hear. They usually do not wear clothing for any practical function, but may adopt a few flashy accouterments, such as a plumed hat or a brocaded sash.
They are a proud, flamboyant people, and every Froschling—no matter their station—has a long name, an aristocratic title, a storied lineage, and an elaborate network of alliances, feuds, and intrigues with seemingly every other Froschling.
In early adulthood, they are eager explorers, passionate lovers, and ready skirmishers. A good life for froschling-kind is one in which much glory and recountable incident has been gathered early, so that in middle age they might settle down and enjoy life’s luxuries.
Froschlings claim to have descended from the moon, where they lived in open palaces of silver filigree. They do not mourn for or scheme to reclaim their lunar estates, but rather presume that they will be restored to their appropriate glory any day now.
Froschlings have three sexes (male, female, and neuter) and can transition between them. This can make for complicated affairs of the heart, which is how the forschlings like it.
Froschlings acquire names throughout their lives on important occasions, such as birth, matriculation, marriage, transition, and public acknowledgement of notable accomplishments. They retain their previous names, listing and using the most recent first. Froschlings accrue titles with even greater profligacy. They eagerly await opportunities to declare their full name and titles.
