These evil creatures resemble walking frogs with arms and the intelligence to use them. They live in the waters far under the earth.

Amphibian men are one of the many underworld tribal Creature that can be found on any cavern level. They are equivalent in size to kobolds, but are less agile.

Despite being labelled as hostile in the unit list, amphibian men found initially underground will simply ignore your dwarves while attacking any dangerous wildlife. They will become aggressive once a subterranean invasion occurs, so tread with care.

Like many underground races, the danger of amphibian men is not to be found in their wooden weapons, but in the substances found smeared on them. Amphibian men use many poisons, some of which can be deadly. They are definitely found with metal spears and shields as of v50.08, ranging from copper to steel, making them a considerable threat to civilians. They will launch group attacks on your fort, and have the ability to swim through your reservoirs and launch amphibious assaults on your fisherdwarves. Despite their description, they do not possess the[EVIL]token and are not any more malevolent than any other race of animal people.

Some dwarves like amphibian men for their terrifying features.

Has a very bad lisp issue.
