Arctic Lizardfolk[edit]

Lizardfolk that were seperated from a tribe thousands of years ago, and were forced to adapt to the new, harsh enviroments.


Arctic Lizardfolk work hard to survive, spending most their time hunting and gathering. They clan together if they can, and many large families, maybe 40 or so, can be fould dwelling in a large cave. Many, however just stick to groups of three to five.

Physical Description[edit]

A male Arctic Lizardfolk Stands at about 7ft tall, weighing around 300 pounds, with a hide ranging from light gray to medium gray. Female Arctic Lizardfolk stand at around 6ft, weigh around 230 pounds, and have hides that range from snow white to light gray.


Arctic Lizardfolk trade with Frostfolk, and get along well with them. Both respect each others power, and form alliances in times of trouble. The same can not be said for Nethanderal, who often attempt to corner a lone Arctic Lizardfolk and kill it for meat. In return, Nethanderal camps are pillaged and looted, and Nethaderal are sold to the frequent passing Neogi trails as slaves. Arctic Lizardfolk usually live far away from civilization, and do not deal with dwarves or humans. The aid the occasional Frost Elf only out of respect for their love for nature.


Most Arctic Lizardfolk are Neutral or Chaotic Neutral. They do not tend to become evil or good.


Arctic Lizardfolk can survive in any reigon. They are not covered in massive amounts of fur, like many tundra inhabitants, but have a high body temperature, and thick skin. Though they could survive in temperate, tropical, or desert areas, It is the Tundra that they are suited for.


Arctic Lizardfolk do not revere any deity, as the Lizardfolk pantheon had long been lost to them. If one were to show themself to them, the Arctic Lizardfolk would revere it. Like all Lizardfolk, Arctic Lizardfolk have an racial love for nature.


Draconic, and those who deal with Frostfolk, Common.
