Lizardfolk, Ancient (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Ancient LizardFolk are a nomadic and tribal race that has been living the same way since the very dawn of creation. Though their ways may seem simple and barbaric to outsiders, their culture is steeped in tradition and ritual.

Physical Description[edit]

Similar to any regular Lizardfolk, but with distinctive elephant-like tusks. An average, newly-matured Ancient LizardFolk is around a height of 6ft.


Tend to be hostile to anyone trespassing in their territory, but are calm and dispassionate when on neutral foreign soil.


Any. Most commonly Chaotic Neutral


Much like dragons, particularly old members of this race are known to strike out alone and collect great hordes of wealth upon which to sleep. This is done mostly out of an almost religious reverence to their Draconic ancestors, but such a collection often breeds greed anyway.


Ancient LizardFolk rarely fear or respect any deities, favouring to worship their ancestors in their stead.


Royal Draconic


Arruz, Bel'Fas, Cherro, Tor.
