"Well they are short people who look not dissimilar to a bipedal dog," Kalan said "They like building a group consensus before acting. Their government and leadership style is odd, they tend to allow whoever is most knowledgeable about a situation to take the leadership role and so it swaps often. That can make dealing with them exhausting as you don't know who you might be taking to between visits but they are very loyal once you've made a deal."

"We'll have a choice on what way to go once were out of the clan lands and mountains," Kalan said "Either we can take the roads, cutting across your kingdoms lands, then into the Kobold lands, or we can go by river, that stays out of your lands and it should be quicker, but there has been some issues with the lizard men in the area."

A group of what appears to be large frogs walking on two legs appear out of the murk "If you will not pay the tribute, then you will become the tribute." the leader said it was wearing robes and holding a staff in its hands.

Two of the creatures wore leather armour and had a bundle of javelins on their backs and another one gripped in their hands, the hopped forward and then flung a javelin that went wide. Another wearing around stood forward seemingly to guard the leader, the last held a long spear in its hands and began to move forward striding through the swamp towards the group, a large toad by its side.

The fireball arcs towards the two frog-people with Javelins and detonates among them, they desperately try to jump aside but are two slow and are caught in the blast and fall to the explosion, filing the air with burnt dirt and fried chicken-like smell.

The cloaked leader gestures at the water next to the boat and it slowly rises forming a wall of water between the boat and the shore. The others on the boat prepare for the frogs next action as the wall of water obscures their vision of the frogs actions.

Meanwhile the spear armed frog has climbed on his mount and with a huge leap lands on the boat causing it to rock side to side. He lunges at Alisha with his lance, and strikes home drawing blood. She tries to counter but fails to hit. Bethany chants a quick spell and fires a firebolt that hits the giant toad mount.

Bethany steps up to aid her friend and uses a spell that launches a spray of light in a variety of colours into their eyes and both the rider cries out as they affected by the spell.

The leader glares hatefully at the ship and its occupants and begins to cast a spell, a massive wave raises up on the far side of the boat and comes crashing down on it and its occupants.

The frogfolk leads you towards the walls of the town and then into the town, a few frog-folk look on curiously but most quickly hide when they see the humans.

Epineh is led to the biggest building, inside you see a familiar looking group of Frog-folk huddled together.
