Hi all,

Quick question...
What are the Froglodyte minions carrying on their backs?

Sand dollar shells? Hardened lily pads?

Question came up and I didn't have the minis in front of me.

Thanks!

Janus

Yep, sand dollars being used as shields, slung on their backs... I'm guessing.

I always thought they were lilypads, used as backpacks or (not very durable) shields.

Do sand dollars live in rivers too then (not just the ocean)?
I mean, Downwood Tales takes place in a forest.

Thanks for the replies all! The bullfrog seem to definitely have shells for shields, so I figured they were sand dollars, but I guess in the back of mind without realizing it, Teeka's comment about not being near the ocean cast some doubt.

Well, it's not like I have a problem with them being sand dollars if that's what they are. It just didn't seem to make sense that you would find any in the forest, let alone all these many frogs having one.

Also, because of the shape and size it's easy to assume they're shields... But the froglodyte's stats don't seem to indicate that, as they only have 1 defense (they jump away instead of trying to block the blow).
That's why I thought maybe they're backpacks or something like that.

A forest could easily border an ocean beach. Remember that Castle Andon was attacked by Pirates in one of the DLC adventures. The fact that we have not yet seen the ocean in the adventures does not mean that it is automatically a great distance away.

Sorry, Teeka.

However, Plaid Hat and the BGG page for the DLC mentions more than I did. I didn't think I was letting Brodie out of the Bag.

As far as I know, Sand Dollars are unique to salt water. This does make it a bit odd since frogs cannot live in salt water. I still think they are sand dollar shields anyway though, because

1. I cant think really of much a Lilypad would be good for. A sand dollar is sort of hard and might block a blow, and its strapped where one might strap a shield.

2. it really looks exactly like a sand dollar.

3. we know that the froglodytes are very aggressive, so even if they dont collect the sand dollars themselves, they might be able to bully another anthropomorphic animal species into doing it for them. Crabs maybe.
