Clash of Worlds
Gripplis stand just over 2 feet tall and have mottled green-and-brown skin. They look like humanoid frogs. While normally the Grippli would be content to live in their swamp unconcerned with the world around them; a small moon orbiting over (and entirely too close) to their swamp has changed all that.
In fact this occurence has led to the Grippli becoming the most advanced civilization in the world of Zatmeni Zvedavy. They have mastered the arts of Alchemy, Explosives, Rocketry, and Gliders in their attempts to get airborne and explore or destroy the odd flying rock. As such they are the only race currently with access to firearms.

The grippli cannot use this trait if it is wearing heavy armor, is carrying a heavy load, or is unable to react to the fall (such as being helpless).

Alchemist: Grippli Alchemists learn to combine and then dry potion components without adding liquids, this may be in the form of a tea or compress depending on its use. Either way storage and transportation of Grippli potions is much easier and little fear of broken flasks exists. Furthermore Grippli Alchemists may add their Wis bonus (as well as Int) to craft alchemy checks so long as they are in an area with fresh resources, such as a bog or forest.
