A toad (or frog—the terms were more or less interchangeable[3]) was any of a number of species of amphibians characterized by dry, leathery skin (usually pink and orange-colored), short legs, and snout-like parotoid glands.[citation needed]

LocationsEdit

Toads were found in the Calim Desert,[4] the Great Swamp of Rethild[5], and at Toad Knoll in Shadowdale.[6]

EcologyEdit

Toads could serve as familiars to mages.[7]

Frogs were eaten in many regional dishes, such as brassla.[8][9]

In cultureEdit

Geographical locations were sometimes named after toads, such as Toad Knoll[6] and Toadsquat Mountains.[10]
