Gripplis are small humanoids typically resembling tree frogs, and have slight but very agile frames. They stand just over two feet in height, but possess remarkable agility and the ability to climb rapidly. Gripplis are normally brightly coloured like the tropical tree frog they resemble, though their bright colour fades as they age. They typically weigh just over thirty pounds.
Gripplis reproduce via egg laying, and a newly hatched grippli takes less than a year to mature to adult size. Unless they meet a violent end, which considering the dangerous environments they inhabit is very possible, gripplis can live reach 60 years of age. They typically hunt and eat giant insects as well as mundane fruit.
Habitat and society
Gripplis normally form primitive societies deep within tropical jungles or marshland. Despite their reclusive nature, they normally trade with neighbouring societies for metals and gemstones that they cannot obtain themselves.
Gripplis are common in Garund, especially in the Mwangi Expanse and the Sodden Lands. With the rise of the Angazhan-worshipping charau-ka across the Expanse, most of the grippli tribes have migrated westward toward the Sodden Lands, and many now dwell in the Kaava Lands.
Gripplis also live in the Valashmai Jungle of Tian Xia. It is from the ruins that dot these deadly jungles that researchers have gleaned accounts of the grippli race's origin—they were supposedly imported from across the stars to Golarion.
