The much reviled race of the Nyphydei, or Frog-men, is the spawn of their insane master, Lukather. Their numbers are great within his obscenely monstrous underground vault, but have widely spread elsewhere in the Prime as well. These sour-smelling brutes fight either naturally with claws and maws, or with sharp (preferably magical) weapons, enjoying the pillaging and murder of any and all. Their physicality is rivaled only by the strongest men, being equal to a humanoid with an 18/00 Strength in every respect except damage adjustments.

Frog-men are adaptable beings and can even come in different sizes and classes, but the great majority are of the described average here. However, some of the more feared guardians in Lukather's vault possess limited spell use, while others are gigantic butchers towering eight feet overhead. It is unknown by most if these unusually powerful variants are ever encountered elsewhere...
