Bullywug

Here, released under OGL are the stats for the PC race of Bullywug. This is compatible with Hackmaster, but also 1st and 2nd edition.


Race: Bullywug
Bullywugs are bipedal frog-like amphibians inhabiting swamps, marshes, and other dank locations. They are covered with a smooth, mottled olive green hide that gives them natural protection. They have the faces of enormous frogs, characterized by a wide mouth and bulging eyes. Like frogs, their hands and feet are webbed. They begin big as adults (6' tall) and can grow as large as 12' in extreme cases.
Bullywugs are violent fascist sexist savages. Bullywugs are extremely efficient and cooperative with each other, helping each other without conflict to survive in stark contrast to other Chaotic Evil races. They also do not display the greed or lust for power normally seen in other evil races. They rarely fight among themselves. They direct all their violence and hostility against women first, and non-bullywugs males second.
Females (of any species) are viewed as nothing more than egg-layers. Women are kept tied, and are beaten and raped until their spirit is broken or they are killed. If broken they are then trained as slaves for acts of indescribable turpitude. Males of other races do not fair much better, being given to those of lower status in the tribe, unless strong or powerful in some way. In which case they are systematically broken of spirit and made slaves of the highest ranking members of the tribes.
It is clear due to their ability to work together smoothly that this behavior is a cultural artifact, rather than a behavioral norm. Thus many Bullywug adventurers are female Bullywugs, or youth that avoid having their conscious broken until they can flee.
