Aghoy are bipedal tree frogs, about two heads shorter than a human. Secretive and mysteries, the frogmen dwell in the deepest forests, preferably up in the trees where they can be left alone. They have wide frog-like heads, webbed feet, hunched bodies, and limbs that tend to be lanky and thin. Aghoy skin is slippery and the back is mottled with brown speckles. The fingers and toes have round suckers, allowing them to stick to even surfaces with ease, and they can move upright or on all four. Their eyes are red with vertical slit pupils and they have a third eyelid that allows them to see perfectly underwater. Aghoy smell like old, wet vegetation. They wear colourful loincloths and belts with pockets, and adorn themselves with animal teeth and simple jewellery.

They rarely interact with humans. Aghoy are skilled healers, herbalists and foragers. No race surpasses their knowledge of medicinal herbs, roots and oils, and aghoy potions are highly sought by others. They are believed to be the oldest race in Suwarnabumi. The frogmen lay its eggs in trees in a mass of sticky foam. Females lay a clutch between three and five eggs. Aghoy eat fruit and insects. They use nets to catch small insects and spiders. Aghoy religion is poorly understood, but they seem to worship a spirit being called Kodok, also known as the Deep One.

An aghoy stands 3 to 3-1/2 feet tall (see the rules for Small Heroes in Chapter One of True20 Adventure Roleplaying) and weighs from 40 to 45 pounds. They speak their own language, Aghoy, which sound much like a combination of croaks, groans and clicks to the human ear. Humanoids can learn to understand the language, but cannot learn to speak it.
