Title: the Big Book of Murlocks
The Big Book of Murlocks
by Tamara Ghostwriter, Deputy Minister of the Naginag Ministry of Pedagogy
Murlocks are a race of people that live all over the world. They are
amphibious, meaning that they can breathe both air and water.
To many people, murlocks look like large frogs or toads. Murlocks do not
look like elves, humans, halflings or even nagas. Some children are
frightened by their appearance, but there is nothing to fear! Murlocks may
not make the same facial expressions as you, but they have feelings, hopes
and passions, just like everyone else. Try talking to the next murlock you
meet. Chances are that he wants to be your friend!
In faraway parts of the world, murlocks are called different by names, like
bullywugs or toadlings. Most of these murlocks are not friendly like those
who live in the Naginag Combine.
Murlocks come in many different shapes and colors. Most murlocks of the
same tribe are the same color. Some murlocks live in freshwater, which can
be found in lakes, rivers and streams, while other murlocks live in
saltwater like the ocean.
Murlocks are very skilled at druidic magic. Each murlock tribe specializes
in a certain kind of magic (although a couple practice more than one). The
types of murlock magic are: hydromancy, which uses water, geomancy, which
uses dirt, sand or stone, phytomancy, with uses plants, or zoamancy, which
uses animals for spells.
The different tribes of murlocks in the Naginag Combine are as follows:
Behr'rooj (bear roosh) - The Behr'rooj are murlocks that live deep in the
ocean. They can be many different colors, but most of them are light blue.
They are the largest tribe of murlocks. Behr'rooj spellcasters can be
both geomancers or hydromancers.
Dje (duh jay) - The Dje murlocks live near a well named after their tribe
in the Wilderness of Zin. They are very protective of their well. They
have brown skin. Dje spellcasters are geomancers.

that is named after them. They have yellow colored skin. The D'nogal are

populous murlock tribe.
