Nerdarchsit Ted here and today we get to hop into a new customized race in tribute to the game run at Philly Games con by Nerdarchist Ryan. His game went over so well that people wanted to know how to use a Bullywug as a playable race in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.
Bullywug – customized race in Dungeons and Dragons
Bullywugs have a rich culture presented in the Monster Manual. They will grovel and debase themselves in the presence of their superiors and will use cunning and murder to try and climb up the political ladder of their community.
Bullywugs consider themselves the destined rules of the swamp that they call their home. To say otherwise is to threaten open hostility. But this is an advantage any travelers can exploit. Bullywugs love to lord over their captives as they would rather capture than kill those that invade their territory. If you grovel and beg for mercy and use plenty of flattery, a captive can easily be treated as a guest before being allowed to depart.
Having the base ability to communicate with toads and frogs of any size they tend to exploit this and use them for many reasons. They can help spread word throughout the community. They can be used as mounts or scouts and when prey or treasure is captured they can carry it back to the lord.

Age. A bullywug reaches adulthood fairly quickly, after about 10 years and can manage to live to old age at 50 – 60 years.
