Heh, better than anything I could ever put together. :)

Alright looking it over now.

EDIT

Having given it the quick once over I am wondering about the acid damage. Given the rate at which it can be used have you considered lowering it to 2d10? If it had a longer cool-down time I would say the 2d20 could certainly work.

Also you need to separate the description from the combat section, and switch 1-3 to 1d3 for the number encountered. Other than that the formatting looks good.

OK I met you half-way on it. I reduced the damage to 4d8, and only allowed it use the weapon 3 times a day. This brings it more in line with a dragon's breath of comparable Hit Dice (and they can fire theirs every other round). I split out the combat into another paragraph and moved the part about its hard shell and actually added that its immune to fire.

Alright didn't mean to pressure you to change the damage, it just seemed really high for a 6 hit dice beastie. Still, I like your solution better than my own. I will take a look at it now.

MM.. not a problem. I appreciated the feedback.. This guy has been tossed around from BX to 3.5 and back again.. d8 seems to be a better dice since it does normalize it at a bit lower average..

Alright I took Smoot's advice and made my own dark dwarves from scratch rather than just convert the duergar. Any opinions on them would be nice.

Also I am still looking for feedback on the raggidy.

I like these woggs. As I read it, it sounded more Toadish, but then I got to the pic which screams frog. Regardless, a nice addition. We got loads of stuff to make a Bog/Swamp adventure. Woggs, Chelonian, Lizard Men, Lerini...

Funny thing is that they were toads in my minds eye while I was writing them. Then I found that picture and it just seemed to fit so well I changed them to frogs.

I like the woggs.. I can already seeing them have an adversarial relationship with lizardmen..

I wonder if I should add the same caveat lizardmen have about not being able to swim in armor to the woggs.
