“Hello, my baby
Hello, my honey
Hello, my ragtime gal

Send me a kiss by wire
Baby, my hearts on fire

If you refuse me
Honey, you’ll lose me
Then you’ll be left alone

Oh baby, telephone
And tell me I’m your own.”
-Ida Emerson and Joseph E. Howard, “Hello My Baby!”


Useful Info

Giant frogs are fast-moving amphibians that have meager offensive abilities, but which can be a threat to very low-level characters. They are usually found in the early-mid Dungeon and the Lair, but can appear as out-of-depth foes very early. Also, a couple Sewers endings contain two giant frogs.

Tips & Tricks

A giant frog's speed makes escaping them difficult, particularly when they're encountered in water. If you know you can't outrun them to a staircase or door that you can close, spend your actions hitting them with throwing weapons or wands. Simply running won't accomplish anything.
