What do we know about this great batrachi king? All Iíve ever heard is how much Bazim-Gorag thought he was an idiot. Is there more info outside of the GHotR?

Not much else, except that we know who killed him. I'd imagine Omo is Jotunbrud. (just a note, misspelling of the subject, missing a u).

Under the wise leadership of Zhoukoudien, batrachi power reaches its zenith. The High Oneís reign ends when he is slain in battle by the titan thane Omo.

I'd recommend reading the unofficial history in Candlekeep Compendium IV "Reign of Dragons" as well. It appears to be the source of some of the material that's later incorporated into GHotR or the 4e histories.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Lol yeah. I noticed my own error - I just posted from my phone which isnít always fun to edit from.

Thatís a good suggestion. Iíll check out the Compendium. Iím truly upset that the batrachi and aeree werenít explored in more detail. It looks like it was headed that way until 4e came out and all of the sudden I never even heard about the Sarruhk again.

I also miss Gray Richardsonís musings on the matter. He seemed to have aeree lore down perfectly.

Well, the Sarrukh got really good treatment in 4e, with the nation of Okoth being featured in the Campaign Guide.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopherís path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

It's just my musings, but I have a bunch on the batrachi, aearee and sarrukh in Crown of Eaerlann, which hopefully I'll finish in the not too distant future.

Iíd love to see Zhoukoudien as a froghemoth looking creature- but obviously very intelligent and as regal as a king

I picture him kind of as a binder from 3.5 who might appear like Ningauble of the Seven Eyes (hooded robe, you can't see his face, occasionally something might shoot out from the hood), etc... i.e. he makes pacts with beings in exchange for power, and as a result he "wears their marks". He might be mysterious and powerful, but he's also basically beholden to dark powers. Eventually he makes a pact with someone he shouldn't have (and thus why he's called a fool). I'd also maybe link his power as something akin to doppelganger like wherein he absorbs the memories of individuals, and maybe he can change his appearance at need. Just some ideas to throw out.
