Kaeru-Sama or Kaeru are bipedal frog-men, normally about 4 ft. tall, but with some growing as large as 6 ft. They can leap as far as 30 ft. to attack, gaining a tactical advantage and inflicting double damage that round.
Because of their skin color changes to match their surroundings, they surprise on a roll of 1-4 on 1d6 in wetlands and woodlands. They speak their own language.
Kaeru organize in clans of 1d4 x 20 warriors plus non-combatants equal to 100% of the warriors. For every twenty warriors, there is one kaeru sub-chief with 3 HD. If a clan has more than 40 warriors, it is
commanded by a chief with 4 HD; otherwise, one of the sub-chiefs commands the clan. The composition of a kaeru army can be determined randomly.
35% Short bow, spear
35% Buckler (AC 13), short sword, 3 javelins
20% Leather armor and buckler (AC 15), spear, long sword or katana
10% Leather and shield (AC 16), spear, 3 javelins, giant snail
Kaeru adjust their starting ability scores as follows: Dexterity +1, Intelligence -1 and Charisma -1. Kaeru can leap as far as 30 ft. to attack, gaining a tactical advantage and inflicting double damage that round, essentially using it as a charge attack that does not require them to move at least 30 feet. As with all charges, they suffer the normal penalty to AC when charging. Because of their skin color changes to match their surroundings, they surprise on a roll of 1-4 on 1d6 in wetlands and woodlands. Kaeru can multi-lass as cleric/sorcerers, fighter/sorcerers and sorcerer/thieves. They speak Kaeru may also speak Aquan, Draconic, Oni and Yokai.
IN THE WESTERN LANDS
Kaeru can be found in lands along lakes, rivers and swamps. Though Kaeru will gather into small communities of their own, they generally prefer to join human communities whenever possible. These frog people are regularly employed by human lords as dock-workers, boat tenders and in the maintenance of drainage systems. The Kaeru seem not to mind in the least. When working as mercenaries, Kaeru are often employed in sneak attacks or guerilla actions.
