Grippli are small bipedal humanoids that resemble a frog. They are around two feet tall, their skin can be almost any color there is, and each of them also has a distinct pattern that allows all other known Grippli to recognize them immediately.

Led by a tribe mother, they make their homes close to the water and large numbers of insects, and while they are usually shy and unintrusive they are quite intelligent and will not shy away from a fight, especially against spiders and snakes.

Sometimes the curiosity takes over and certain Grippli decide to venture further away from their community, seeking the unknown. In doing so, they encounter many ways to make their names known, names like Gropp, Flycatcher, and Drogux.

Grippli are small frog-like humanoid creatures, bipedal and able to move both inside and outside water. They are very agile, known for being able to jump high and far, and will always fight to defend their home, especially when it comes to snakes and spiders, their racial enemies. Most are have an inquisitive mind and it’s not surprising to see some of them go out and explore, even never returning back.
