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 races, and can be found on any cavern level milling around piles of meat and tanned hides. They are equivalent in size to kobolds, but are less agile.

Approach with caution, unless the tribe is friendly. If the tribe is friendly, feel free to take advantage of them in imperialistic tradition and steal all their resources without compensation. To check whether a tribe of amphibian men is friendly, press u to view the unit list. The amphibian men will be labeled as either hostile or friendly. Alternatively, press v to view one of their profiles. If a hostile amphibian man kills a forgotten beast, they will become friendly. However, they will not attack their fellow amphibian men. This is true of all underground animal man tribes.

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 will launch group attacks on your fort, and have the ability to swim through your reservoirs and launch amphibious assaults on your fisherdwarves.
