Otto was the only giant toad ever brought back to civilization, done so
by John Paul Flathead in the 770-80s. Otto, who was known for his
extraordinary appetite and his curmudgeonly personality, was not only
ugly, but bright blue and as large as a small shack. He could speak
fluently the tongues of men and usually looked pretty grumpy. As the
pet of John Paul, Otto's name became great and known throughout many
lands. And though he spent many years at sea, few pirates knew his name.
the death of John Paul in 789 GUE, Otto lived in the Frigid River Delta
on a huge lily pad. The swamp was originally owned by a cartel of lily
pad farmers in Borphee, who became indebted up to their ears to a
conglomerate of Gurthian banks. At that time, Otto became the primary
stockholder, thus one could safet say that he own the swamp.
883 GUE, the First Dungeon Master seeking 24 objects (2 from each of
the Twelve Flatheads) to end the curse of Megaboz, sought John Paul's
spyglass which Otto had inherited. If he wanted it, he had to bring
Otto the Four Fantastic Flies of Famathria, the objects of utmost
culinary lust among his species. This Dungeon Master successfully
captured the four flies and delivered them to the giant toad, who had
the good fortune of dining on them. True to his word, the toad grumpily
permitted him to have Flathead's spyglass.
