Rain of Frogs

School conjuration (summoning); Level bard 3, druid 3, psychic 3, shaman 4, sorcerer/wizard 3, summoner/unchained summoner 3, witch 3


Effect one swarm of poisonous frogs


This spell functions as summon swarm, except you summon a swarm of poisonous frogs. This swarm has the statistics of a centipede swarm, except it has the animal type and its poison deals Constitution damage instead of Dexterity damage.

Putting it all together…

To save you the effort of looking up 5 different things, the wording (if meshed with summon swarm) would be:

Rain of Frogs

School conjuration (summoning); Level bard 3, druid 3, psychic 3, shaman 4,  sorcerer/wizard 3, summoner/unchained summoner 3, witch 3


Casting Time 1 round
Components V, S, M/DF (a square of red cloth)

You summon a swarm of poisonous frogs, which attacks all other creatures within its area. You may summon the swarm so that it shares the area of other creatures. If no living creatures are within its area, the swarm attacks or pursues the nearest creature as best it can. The caster has no control over its target or direction of travel.

And here is a complete stat block for a poisonous frog swarm:

*Special Notes on the Stat Block: If this were truly an “animal” instead of vermin (as centipede would be) there would be many other changes to make as well. However, the spell simply says to use the centipede swarm with the following changes…” so only the changes indicated in the spell have been applied.
