Batrachi were an amphibious race that are counted as one of the Creator Races.


  • -33500 DR : The batrachi found kingdoms of their own.[1]
  • -31500 DR : The batrachi grew to the height of their power under their "High One" Zhoukoudien. Their golden time ended with the High One being killed by Omo, the titan thane[1] of Jotunbrud.[2] He was considered wise by historians,[1] but BRJ claimed he was a foolish ruler whose carelessness eventually was the cause of squandering their empire[2] Kolophoon.[3]
  • -31000 DR : The batrachi unleashed several once-imprisoned primordials against Annam, lord of giants and titans, and his colossal brood. The gods, furiously opposed the primordials which leads to catastrophic disaster across all of Toril, including an ice moon dropped on the world. Before the world was destroyed, Ao splits the world into two twin worlds, slightly out of phase with one another. One is called Abeir, and dominion over this twin of Toril is given to the primordials. Toril, the original world is placed under divine rule. [4] According to BRJ, many batrachi left Toril for Limbo after a cold period called Seven-Turn Winter. In Limbo, the batrachi were changed, at least for the second time in their history, into something by Ramenos to serve the frog-god's agenda. They created the Supreme Throne as their kingdom.[2]

Geographical RegionEdit

It was discovered by illithids in 1370 DR that the batrachi ruled at least as far north as the Black Sea and as far south as Lopango.[2] The Sea of Fallen Stars was created from four separate bodies of water when a moon-part dropped on the batrachi realm of Kolophoon.[3]


The batrachi who live in the Supreme Throne worship a deity called Ramenos, who changed into something by the frog-god. Being changed by the frog-god didn't happen only once.[2]


The Order of the Black Flame that is associated with the Firebringer.[2]


  • BRJ:

an entity that claimed to be a batrachi lord who was changed by Ramenos into something and lived by 1370 DR.[2]

(BRJ refers to Brian R. James, an author. The batrachi lord in question is Bazim-Gorag the Firebringer, not "BRJ")

Kolophoon, Boitumelo, Nadezhda, Zhoukoudien and Pourounkorokale were the Batrachi Empires.

Pourounkorokale was located underneath the Shining Sea. The tako ruled over tribes of kuo-toa, locathah, and other species of aquatic batrachi. Pourounkorokale fell after the fall of the other Batrachi empires due to dragon attacks and the betrayal by their sahuagin allies. Survivors fled through the Strait of Lopango into the Sea of Corynactis.

The confederation of Boitumelo was centered on the Narrow Sea and was populated by tribes of kappa, sivs, and grippli.

The abolethic Kolophoon Sovereignty ruled over the lands surrounding and beneath the modern day Wizards Reach and Alamber Sea. Kopru and froghemoth were their servitors. Presumably these batrachi opened the first gates to the Far Realm and unleashed the Abolethic Sovereignty upon Abeir-Toril.

Zhoukoudien was the largest of the batrachi surface nations and was ruled by the ancestors of the bullywugs. These batrachi caused the Tearfall when they unleashed the primordials upon the world.

Nadezhda was an empire of batrachi doppelgangers in modern-day Maztica. The empire fell to the Aearee as they moved into the region.Brian R. James on
