Gripplis stand just over 2 feet tall and have mottled green-and-brown skin. Most gripplis are primitive hunter gatherers, living on large insects and fish found near their treetop homes, and are unconcerned about events outside their swamps. The rare grippli who leaves the safety of the swamp tends to be a ranger or alchemist seeking to trade for metals and gems.

Often called “The Watchers,” this subtype of the Grippli race is native to the jungles of The Island. They are known to spend long hours in the trees observing the natural world. Iridescent Gripplis stand just over 2 feet tall and with brilliantly colored skin, often mottled with black spots or stripes (or both). Most gripplis are primitive hunter gatherers, living on fruit, large insects, or birds found in the treetop canopy of their jungles and are unconcerned about events outside their forests. It is not uncommon for a Grippli to spend weeks at a time among the treetops, jumping from tree-to- tree and never once touching the ground. The rare grippli who leaves the safety of the jungle tends to be a ranger or alchemist seeking to trade, though from time-to-time others are struck by wanderlust.
For the most part they don’t interact with other races much. They live in the trees deep in the jungle where they don’t get many visitors. The visitors they do get are mostly met with distant curiosity. They like watch anyone who passes through their territory.
They are a very wait-and-see type of people, so as long as no one messes with them they aren’t going to mess with anyone else. Don’t start no trouble; won’t be no trouble. Anyone who was interested in starting said trouble would be met with a volley of javelins from the treetops.
A few times per year they venture out of the jungle to trade a sugary sap they collect from trees (think jungle maple syrup).
