From D&D Wiki
"Mrrrrgggmmgllllrrlgl!" ~ Mrrgggrl
Murlocs are an amphibious creature, somewhat resembling a frog. They are most often shades of blue or green. Certain ethnicities of Murloc have grey coloring, although they are rare. Murlocs have razor sharp teeth for tearing apart the meat of whatever they eat. Murlocs also have red fins on their back, for being aerodynamic in water. Murlocs always have either yellow or red eyes. They stand on their two webbed hind legs and hold objects in their two three fingered front arms. Although Murlocs are bipedal, they always appear to be slouching or leaning over.
Murlocs inhabited the world for thousands of years, watching as other races grew beside them, building civilizations, creating tools, waging wars, and becoming allies. Eventually they themselves created primitive huts on shores of beaches, lakes, and rivers. They created tools and weapons. They learned to hunt. They live in tribe systems, rarely interacting with other tribes of Murlocs.
Murlocs live a life of the hunt, their world revolves around hunting, for if they catch nothing, they eat nothing. They mainly eat fish, although, they will eat most other small creatures. Murlocs live in huts made of branches and leaves. Longer branches serve as stilts for keeping the hut over water, during high tide or a flood. Murlocs tend to stay close to tribe and the tribe very rarely moves from it's position. If the tribe does move, it is usually a sign of a drought, or a famine.
Murloc names are often sound very similar to non-murloc and do not vary based on gender. Murloc names sound like like gurgling noises.
