13 BUFIT KERPLOCT'S ROOM. A froglodyte wangateur is here with his two servants and a pet.
Bufit Kerploct, Froglodyte Wangateur (AC 5; MV 12”//15”; HD 4; hp 20; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite or 1 staff; D 1-3/1-3/1-6 or staff +1 to damage due to strength; SA Steam breath for 2d6, chant; XP 230)
2 Male Froglodytes (AC 5; MV 12”//15”; HD 3+2; hp 16, 19; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite; D 1-3/1-3/1-6; SA Steam breath for 2d6; XP 189, 201)
Giant Poisonous Frog (AC 8; MV 3”//9”; HD 1; hp 7; #AT 1 bite; D 1; SA Poison; XP 52)
Bufit has a staff with a special gold head, designed to look like a frog. It is worth 300 gold crescents. Each froglodyte wears a gold collar worth 75 gold crescents each.
This cave holds a small table with bones and sticks that Bufit uses to make predictions about the future. There are three crude stone goblets holding green fluid that smells and tastes like seaweed. Each is non-magical, but will act just like a potion of healing if ingested.
If the players make an ally of Bufit and his goons, he will prove somewhat useful, since he cares not for the lives of his fellow froglodytes and is willing to sacrifice them in battle. He desires to be rid of the Horrid Hand orcs (Level 3) and the other two froglodyte wqngateur, his rivals, on this level. Of the three Bufit is unquestionably the weakest and he knows it.
