This warty, gray-skinned toad has a curiously flattened face, and tiny human-like hands in place of its front toes. It seeps a milky substance from behind its large eyes and its oversized maw is crammed with jagged fangs.

A ysaqquan can sire offspring with female frogs and toads.

After well over a century of such breeding, the ysaqquan (iss-AHK-wahn) toad is the result. Weighing up to two pounds and around 6 inches in body length, it is on the larger size for a toad. Its face is flattened like a human’s, its oversized mouth has several lines of short sharp fangs, and its bulging eyes glint with a cunning, malevolent intelligence, for not only is are ysaqquans able to breed with frogs and toads, they can speak with — and thus educate — them.

The average lifespan of such enhanced progeny has doubled — in correlation with their improved intelligence and breeding — from around ten years to twenty or more. As a result, ysaqquan toads have now transcended rudimentary animal intelligence and are able to understand, and, with their more humanoid mouths and hands, speak and write the Common tongue.

The venom of an ysaqquan toad is similar to that of its ysaqqua parent but weaker. A creature that falls unconscious through the secondary effect of ysaqquan toad venom does not awaken in a lucid body within the Dimension of Dream unless a Will save (at the same DC as the venom) to awaken after the initial 2d4 rounds duration is failed. If the creature does enter the lucid dreaming state, another Will save after the initial duration of 2d4 minutes must succeed or the creature remains unconscious for a further 2d4 hours.
