Swamp Stride A boggard scout ignores difficult terrain caused by swamp terrain features.

Terrifying Croak (auditory, emotion, fear, mental) The boggard scout unleashes a terrifying croak. Any non-boggard within 30 feet becomes frightened 1 unless they succeed at a DC 17 Will save; those who critically succeed are temporarily immune for 1 minute.

Tongue Grab If the boggard scout hits a creature with its tongue, that creature becomes grabbed by the boggard. Unlike with a normal grab, the creature isn't immobilized, but it can't move beyond the reach of the boggard's tongue. A creature can sever the tongue by hitting AC 13 and dealing at least 2 slashing damage. Though this doesn't deal any damage to the boggard, it prevents it from using its tongue Strike until it regrows its tongue, which takes a week.

About

Often tasked with patrolling the borders of their lands, boggard scouts learn to speak another language (typically Common) to make it easier to issue threats and insults toward trespassers.
