Return to Caldera
Lizardfolk inhabit swamps and marshes, feeding on local wildlife and driving off or killing trespassers entering their territory. Some especially cruel and savage lizardfolk capture and eat other humanoid creatures, boldly launching raids against the lands of nearby humanoids to capture victims for their feasts.
Lizardfolk excel at swimming and often take to the water to stalk prey and evade pursuit. They can hold their breath for up to ten minutes without trouble. Lizardfolk come in many varieties, including greenscale lizardfolk (the most common breed) and blackscales. Blackscales are dumb, hulking brutes that often inhabit the same swamps and marshes as their smaller kin. A blackscale tribe might be an enemy to a lizardfolk tribe, but more often the two work together or even intermingle in the same village.
There are no lizardfolk native to Caldera, however there are a few tribes in the northern reaches of Halgard. These have fared better than most other races regarding the recent Halgardian purging of non-human races, as they are very equipped to defend their swampland homes and rarely venture out of them. There are also many lizardfolk tribes who live on the Umbra Isles.
