Mobogo

Of bulbous body and bizarre shape, this gigantic, toad-like beast combines the most disgusting traits of dragon and amphibian. Reptilian wings unfurl from its leaking corpulence, its frame heaped with rolls of corded muscle and moist frog fat. Three buckler-sized yellow eyes protrude above a wide, drooling maw lined with teeth the size of daggers. From this cavernous hollow echoing with deep croaking belches darts a thick tongue the color of an angry bruise, darting forth to greedily snatch up flies, birds, and anything else that comes too near.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Swamp Stride (Ex)

A mobogo can move through any sort of natural difficult terrain at its normal speed while within a swamp. Magically altered terrain affects it normally.

Tongue (Ex)

A mobogo’s tongue is a primary attack with reach equal to three times the mobogo’s normal reach (45 feet for a typical mobogo). A mobogo does not gain the grappled condition when using its tongue to grapple a foe.

Vile Croak (Su)

As a standard action once every 1d4 rounds, a mobogo can unleash a thunderous croak. Any non-boggard or non-mobogo within 50 feet of the mobogo must make a DC 19 Will save or become staggered for 1d4 rounds. Once a creature makes its saving throw against a particular mobogo’s vile croak, it is immune to that mobogo’s croak for 24 hours. Any boggards or mobogos within the area of a mobogo’s vile croak gains a +2 morale bonus on attack rolls and saving throws against fear effects for 1 round. The save DC is Charisma-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate swamps
Organization solitary or gang (2-4)
Treasure standard

Huge and hungry, mobogos merge the features of gigantic toads and swampy dragons, and lair in the deepest, oldest swamps. Here, whole tribes of boggards serve the beasts’ fickle, capricious whims.

Mobogos reside in the most primal swamps of the world, grotesque eldritch wildernesses unchanged for centuries. Boggards believe that in ancient times, after their fecund demon goddess deposited her frogspawn in the muddy morass of the world’s still-forming continents, mobogos were among the first creatures to emerge. Ever since, the mobogos have slept and fed, preying upon the beasts of their fetid meres, growing huge and lethargic, and dreaming inscrutable amphibious dreams of their godly mother’s return. Nearly all mobogos are attended by tribes of boggards. Mobogos care little for matters of origins and philosophies—they care only for the endless sacrifices of food, victims, and pleasing swamp art brought to them by their obedient tribes.

Most mobogos stand approximately 18 feet tall and weigh upward of 3 tons. A mobogo’s loudest croaks cut through the humidity and underbrush of even the densest swamps and can be heard up to a mile away.
