Frog Monster DnD 5E

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes!  Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much. W’re going into the 11th episode of our beast series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at one of my personal favorite beasts and familiars. May i introduce to you the humble dnd 5e frog monsters. This also technically the toad as well by the way, kind of a twofer as it were so needs the same stats for both. The frog is found in the dungeon master’s guide, phb and in a ton of other books so it’s not too hard to find them. It is considered to be cr0 that is to mean it’s no real challenge for parties and you get ten experience points(XP) should you kill it. Now looking at the stats here.

Stats

It’s considered to be a tiny beast and it is unaligned. It’s armor class is 11. It has one hit point calculated by rolling one d4 with a minus one modifier and it’s speed is both 20 feet walking and 20 feet of swimming. Once again you can only move to the highest number of one of those, so just bear that in mind so 20 feet of total movement essentially.

  • Type:  Tiny Beast, Unaligned
  • AC: 11
  • HP: 1(1D4-1)
  • SPEED: 20FT, swim 20FT

Now taking a look at its stats. You’ll notice it is quite weak and quite stupid boasting a minus 5 modifier and both strength and intelligence. Sounds i’m not very charismatic. The only thing it really does i have going for is dexterity which is a plus one. Not super great but thematically i just love these guys.

  • STR: 1 (-5)
  • DEX: 13 (+1)
  • CON: 8 (-1)
  • INT: 1 (-5)
  • WIS: 8 (-1)
  • CHA: 3 (-4)

Taking a look at their skills: You can see plus one to perception and +3 to stealth thank goodness. Under senses you can see a 30 feet of darkvision which is great. And passive perception of 11 which is kind of meh.

Traits

Amphibious: As per this amphibious the frog monster can breathe air and water as well.

Standing Leap: The frog’s able to long jump up to 10 ft. and its high jump is up to 5 ft., with or without a running start.

Under other traits however it has Amphibious which lets it breath both air and water. It also has standing leap, so the long jump is considered to be a 10 of feet and it’s high jump is 5 feet with or without a running start which is quite incredible. I love these as familiars because they can often get into harder to reach places quite easily. I just think they’re kind of fun to use.

This dnd 5e frog monster does not have any type of effective attacks. It actually feeds on the small insects and they do typically dwell near the water, in trees, or the underground. Basically, the frog’s statistics can also used for represent the toad.

Wrap Up

That being said they really are hard to fold into campaigns in the way that they don’t have any actions or attacks or anything of that nature. Their movement isn’t particularly impressive. You can make an argument that there’s stealthy and they can hide underwater and stuff but.

Outside of that i really do struggle how to incorporate these into games at least as they are right here. That being said if you have any ideas on how to incorporate them into your game please let me know down beneath. Also be sure to mention any questions, comments, concerns or other ideas you may have i really do appreciate it. That being said i hope you have a wonderful day and as always happy studying.
