Special Abilities

Hop (Ex): As a movement action, the Oggdo can hop up to 60 feet. It can be any length, including straight up. Furthermore, this can be used as a charge-like attack. As a full-round action, the creature can hop and literally land on an opponent that is at least one size category smaller than itself. The oggdo merely has to land in the target’s square.  The oggdo does not need to make an attack roll; each creature occupying a space it lands on takes damage. A target of a hop can make a REF save (DC 13) for half damage. This action does allow for an attack of opportunity, but if the target elects to attack, it does not get a saving throw.

Swallow whole (Ex): The creature is able to potentially swallow whole any creature it bites which is at least one category size smaller. See page 156-157 of the Alien Archive for more information.

Tongue lash (Ex): As a standard action, the Oggdo can shoot its tongue out at any target within 30 ft. This attack is a melee attack against the targets KAC +4. If it succeeds, the target is grabbed and pulled into the Oggdo’s mouth. If the target is small, then the target is automatically swallowed whole (see above) and suffers the bite damage. If it is medium or larger, then it automatically suffers a bite attack and damage.

 

Oggdos are an Alpha predator, who live in all types of tropical and temperate wetlands. They are massive frog-like monsters, with thick, pebbly hides, a shade of brown mixed with orange, that are quite resilient to energy weapons. On average the creatures are ten feet in length, 8 feet in height and 5 in width. A trio of three eyes are located just above their massive jaws, which are filled with sharp, pointed teeth.

They have four powerful legs, that are able to propel them at great distances, and can even ‘hop’ onto multiple targets at once if they are in close proximity.  Furthermore, the creatures also possess a strong ‘tongue’ which they can use to strike at targets from a distance, and then pull them into either bite or swallow the target whole.

Being solitary, they will not tolerate others of their species in their territory, except when it comes to mating season. Even then a male must battle against other males in order to ‘impress’ females to initiate mating. The female will then lay a set of 1d10d4 eggs, which will eventually hatch (2 months), into ‘tadpoles’ and it takes a full 12 months for the tadpoles to mature into the adult Oggdo.
