-SUMMARY: Common Name: Cave Frog Inspiration: Blue Milk Frog with convergent evolutionary aspects of Poison Dart Frogs & Gliding Leaf Frogs. Species: Trachycephalus ton asterión (Rough-head of the stars) Time: Post-Holocene Diet: Carnivorous Temperament: Languorous Map Relation: Native to Bioluminescent Biome Main Diet: Glowbugs, Shine Pets, Lamprey & Nameless Natural Predators and Only Counters Completely Immune to their Torpor Damage: Reapers, Rock Drakes, Basilisks, Karkinos Colors: Black, Grays, Purples. Blues -WILD: Passive unless attacked. They rarely can be seen clinging to the branches and ceilings of the bioluminescent biome. Cave Frogs are usually spotted occasionally when they hop and glide across caverns to snatch a Glowbug that flies up too high. They also descend onto the Nameless when they rise out of the ground. Even more rare are seeing groups glide down to the water pools under the glowing trees. Where after they give a brief light show, the female will drop eggs into the water before they all retreat back up together. The eggs then hatching into wild Tadpoles, that when mature, will make their way up to join the rest of the other adults. The only things that attack fully grown Cave Frogs, are Reapers, Rock Drakes & Basilisks. While Karkinos will eat Tadpoles they come across, as well as try to grab a Cave Frog when they get the rare opportunity to. These four creatures are the only things immune to the Cave Frog’s defensive and offensive Torpor Damage, and are their true counters. When attacked by one of their 4 natural predators, the Cave Frog will use their Shine Burst to stun them and try to retreat back to a safe elevation. However anything smaller that is foolish enough to attack one will quickly turn the Cave Frog aggressive. Making it lash out while most certainly trying to eat the smaller threat. -DOMESTICATED: The true champions of this 3D Environment. Cave Frogs can cling to any surface, jump great distances, as well as move at deceptively fast speeds on land and in water. Being able to also glide slightly with their large toe pads. This allows them to direct their decent when falling. This mobility makes them unquestionably the best way to get around the Aberrant Caverns of this ARK. As well as being able to fire weapons from their saddles, and a constant supply of Bio-Toxin produced in their inventory, They are invaluable partners when Taming. Being able to turn aspects of their diets into defensive, or offensive capabilities doesn’t hurt their utility much either. From gaining effects from Rockwell recipes to being able to fire a cannonball from their mouths. Cave Frogs can be the Swiss Army Knife of Amphibious, or in some cases, Aerial Assault. Tamed Passively with: Set-up Charge Lamp (or Glow Pet) Preferred Food: Leech Blood Cave Frogs are tamed passively through a little trickery. You set up a charge lamp within range of the where the Cave Frog is hanging around and back away. The Cave Frog will become curious and dive down to it to investigate if it is food. At this point you can sneak up beside it and offer it Leech Blood Passively. A New Model for a Charge Lamp laying on its side on the ground would be needed, but an animation of the Cave Frog trying to swallow, and then spitting out the Charge Lamp would be great if it is not fed quickly enough. Then it would make a confused look before climbing back up to where it came from. If fed quickly enough it will just hang around and let you continue feeding it. But if it is left hungry for more than 5-10 seconds, it will become uninterested and climb back up to where it came from. A Charge-Light Pet on wander can also be used instead of the Charge Lamp to lure the Cave Frog down. However if the Cave Frog is not fed Leech Blood quickly enough. It will eat the Charge-Light Pet. Although cruel, this can benefit you. Giving a huge boost to the initial taming process similar to a Sanguine Elixir. As long as Leech Blood is offered within 5-10 seconds of the Cave Frog becoming hungry afterwards it should stick around and continue the taming process as usual. Weakness: Entering Deserts & Very Hot Volcanic Temperatures dries out the Cave Frog’s skin and begins to drain its health. This is cancelled out while submerging in water or going into an underground area. Entering Freezing Temperatures makes Cave Frogs move progressively slower until Lethargic and unmoving. Needing to be left or put into a cryopod to continue. Although harsh penalties, these obstacles can be worked around with certain consumables. -BASIC ABILITIES: (Super-Mobile Taming-Unit/Cave Explorer) -Tamable, Breedable, Mountable -Can Fire Weapons While Mounted on their Saddle -Matures from a Tadpole -Much Larger than Beelzebufo -Good Carry Weight -No Fall Damage -Very Quick Hop/Movement Speed -Can Jump Ridiculously Far, along with Aimed-Jump Option -Seamlessly Sticks to any Surface it Lands On -Can Stick and Climb on Any Surface -Slight Descending-Glide using Toe-Pads -Same Turning Mobility as the Beelzebufo, even when Climbing -Creates Cementing Paste from Insects like the Beelzebufo -Acquires Charge-Light Reserves from Eating Glowbugs, Lampreys & Shine Pets -Can Emit Charge Light like a Shine Pet while Reserves Last -Can Emit a Shine Burst that Temporarily Stuns Attackers but depletes All Reserves -Colorful Pulsing that indicates when invisible Rock Drakes or a Buried Reapers are Nearby -Produces Bio-Toxin (like Jellyfish’s) but Passively in their Inventory -Can Inflict Major Torpor Damage from Tongue Attack -Can Inflict Minor Torpor Damage every time it is Attacked due to its Poisonous Skin -Will Repel Non-Immune, Aberrant Creatures a Small Distance, Protecting Tames-in-Progress -Will Emit a Warning Charge Burst when attacked that will Stun the Predator Shortly -Can be set to Warn of an Earthquake with a Croaking Noise beforehand -ATTACKS: -Tongue attacks: Regular-Tongue attack & Snatch/Swallow-Tongue attack - Can snatch and swallow survivors with tongue right off of mounts and flyers +Can spit-ball swallowed survivors like Cannonballs or just be dropped on the ground +Survivors die inside Cave Frog’s mouth when oxygen runs out - -Regular Spitwad Projectile Attack +adding Rocks & Grenades to spitwads Regular spitwads do minor damage but stagger medium to smaller targets +adding Rocks do increased damage and stagger while Grenades explode on impact - -Intimidation Croak Large booming croak (with light display when charged) that repels medium to smaller threats - Slippery skin makes it immune to Rhyniognatha resin effects -CONSUMABLE ABILITIES: Kirby-like Powers: (+swallow animation) Light Pets: can use Charge Light until reserves run dry - Nameless: Temporarily Produces Toxins on skin that cause Torpor Damage when hit Rock Drake Egg = Temporarily can use the Rock-Drake Cloaking Ability Wyvern Egg = Temporarily has Elemental Breath invulnerability matching the Egg eaten - Ferox = Temporary Frenzy with Attack & Speed buff - Spiders & Scorpions = Temporary Torpor Damage inflicting Tongue attacks & spitwads Lystrosaurus = Temporary EXP Buff for surrounding tames Oviraptor = Temporary Egg Laying Buff for surrounding tames Jellyfish = non-stackable Temporary x3 increase in passive Bio-Toxin Generation - Fish = Replenishes some of the Cave Frog’s Oxygen while Underwater - Swallowed from Inventory: Nameless Venom: Temporarily Produces Toxins on skin that causes Torpor Damage when hit Narcotic = Can stack for multiple Torpor Damage inflicting Tongue attacks or spitwads Stimulant = Temporary minor Speed Boost Rare Flower = non-stackable Croak that Attracts Herbivores Rare Mushroom = non-stackable Croak that Attracts Carnivores Bug Repellent = non-stackable Croak that Attracts Insects (For Cementing Paste) Sap = Consuming adds up to stack of 5 Sticky-immobilizing spitwad Oil = Consuming adds up to stack of 5 Sticky-flammable spitwad Propellant = Consuming adds up to stack of 5 Flaming-spitball Attack Wyvern milk = Temporary x2 Imprint buff to all surrounding babies Element = non-stackable Croak that emits a TEK EMP-Blast Cannonball = Consuming adds non-stackable Cannon Shot, or Anti-Aircraft Shot to drop flyers Chainbola = Consuming adds non-stackable Chain-Bola-Capture-Shot Medical Brew = Temporarily Heals Cave Frog over time Mindwipe = Can Respec Cave Frog’s Stats Shadowsteak = Cloaking Ability with Hot/Cold Temperature Protection and Weight Buff Tartar = Attack, Defense & Speed Buff Broth = EXP Buff for surrounding tames, survivors, and the Cave Frog Calien Soup = Temporarily Protects Cave Frog from health drain in Deserts & Volcanos Enduro Stew = Stamina & Weight Buff Focal Chili = Temporary Homing spitwads (even +Rocks & Grenades) Fria Curry = Temporarily Prevents from Slowing down and freezing in the Cold Lazarus Chowder = Temporarily provide Infinite Oxygen for Frog/Rider +Frog Swim Speed Buff Cactus Broth = Temporarily Cancels out health drain in Deserts Mushroom Brew = Temporary Radiation Immunity (for much longer than survivors) Soap = Croak that makes Bubbles that float around. Just for fun Dye = Marking/Tracking Paintball spitwad that covers target in bright paint the color of the dye *Any other ideas for unique abilities or attributes gained from possible foods/resources, feel free to leave in the comments. I just felt like you couldn’t beat a Giant Tree Frog for Aberration. I don’t think this creature will fit with any other map so anyone who votes and helps get this Frog to the top 10, I truly appreciate you. This is my dream creature for Aberration and I hope the community likes it too. Thank you for your time.
