Chameleonfolk are stealthy creatures closely related to lizardfolk. They are a little smaller and weaker than lizardfolk, but they are more dextrous and personable than their xenophobic cousins. Chameleonfolk often live among lizardfolk, but some form their own isolated villages.

Stealthy Hunters. Chameleonfolk hunt in groups and have a particular taste for insects. Chameleonfolk hunt by ambushing prey and luring it into unfavourable terrain, such as a cramped cave or a deep river, while the chameleonfolk dart about above it, peppering it with arrows until it falls.
The skills used by chameleonfolk hunters translate easily into warfare and defence of their lands, and many unwary travellers have wandered into chameleonfolk territory only to learn of their mistake when fired upon by arrows seemingly from nowhere.

Dragon Reverence. Chameleonfolk, like lizardfolk, revere dragons and speak Draconic. Chameleonfolk that enter the territory of a dragon will offer it tribute, and in the presence of a dragon, the normally skulking and furtive chameleonfolk fight with uncharacteristic aggression.
