We are the Rulwug: Keepers of the lost lore, Walkers of the shaded path. We are the last of the Torvannon, and never again shall we submit.
The Rulwug are a mysterious species of frog-like humanoids. Their ancestral home lies deep within the Irontree Basin. Long thought to be a myth, or extinct, the only real reference to them is a short entry in Janos Grit’s Volume VIII: Guide to Jungle Creatures – Bestiary of the Basin. The entry describes their frog-like appearance, general elusiveness and skill at blending into the jungle.
A prophetic verse pertaining to the Colossus warns that one of the signs of impending doom is “when the croakers spy”. While returning to Charna from an exposed jungle ruin the party noticed they were being watched by a Rulwug scout. They pursued him through the jungle and saved him from falling to his death on a decrepit bridge. The scout, giving his name as Ormus, hinted that the Rulwug were preparing for war against the aggressive advances of the dragonborn native to the Basin. The party extracted a promise from Ormus that he would return to the jungle south of Charna in one week with word from a Rulwug elder about arranging a meeting.
