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.

Source Bestiary pg. 44
Boggards are aggressive humanoid amphibians that thrive in swamps, marshes, and even some rain forests. Boggards hatch from eggs into tadpoles, fiercely competing for food and even consuming their siblings in that struggle. Over 3 years, the surviving boggards develops arms, legs, and lungs while learning the rudiments of hunting, crafts, and warfare—everything needed to survive in their might-makes-right society. At the top of most boggard hierarchies lords a hulking swampseer imbued with sinister divine magic.

Sidebar - Locations Boggard Villages

Boggards prefer to dwell in swamplands and mires. Though they are at home in the water, they prefer to spend most of their lives on land, and build villages of mud huts. They often keep guardian beasts, such as bloodseekers, crocodiles, giant frogs, or other feral animals tamed (if only just barely) to serve as protectors.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Building With Shells

The shell of a giant snapping turtle is over 20 feet long and is sturdy, naturally curved, and waterproof, making it a useful building material. While boggards seldom have advanced construction techniques, they use giant snapping turtle shells as roofs and rafts when available. Boggards also incorporate smaller turtle shells into their armor.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Gogunta

Gogunta is the patron of the boggard people, many of whom worship her as their goddess.
