Flat-Tail Lizardfolk[edit]


The lizardfolk are as varied in their personality as humans.

Physical Description[edit]

Lizardfolk exhibit a wide range of height, weight, and physical power, depending on the circumstances of their birth and their desired station in life. They tend between four and seven feet tall, and are generally between 150 and 250 pounds. Flat-Tail Lizardfolk scales vary in color between an iridescent azure and a deep indigo color. Their underbellies being sand colored tones. Their name stems from their almost blue-dragon shaped tails. Their long tails are covered in large, wide, plate-like scales, giving them a flat and wide shape. Flat-Tails are also thinner and more agile than a typical lizardfolk.


The lizardfolk and the sahuagin, when they meet, tend to not get along. The sahuagin rule the seas, and the lizardfolk prefer to stick to marshy swamps near the coastlines. However, lizardfolk are capable of living underwater and some do; when they do they come into constant strife with the territorial sahuagin empires.

Their relations with other races depend on the specific tribes and your campaign, as lizardfolk don't tend to any alignment.


Flat-Tail Lizardfolk are usually of neutral alignment


Typically Lizardfolk stick to marshy swampland, usually found near coastlines. However, they often migrate more inland as long as there are marshes and swamps for them to inhabit, and also outwards towards the ocean as they are capable of surviving underwater. They hunt best on land, however. Flat-Tails tend to live in or near deserts. They stick to more lush areas of the deserts they inhabit and are always found near water. More intellectual lizardfolk can be found in various cities throughout the world.


Lizardfolk religion are as varied as the lizardfolk tribes. This one depends on your campaign and what gods and tribes you have.


Lizardfolk speak their own language, known as Lizardfolk. They also tend to speak the common trade language of the world, Common.


Lizardfolk names always have a lot of Ls, Ns, Rs, As, and Ys. Their first name tends to be one distinct word, but their last names tend to be multiple words, separated with apostrophes. Examples include "Lar Narya" and "Lyna Lyr'Yan'Nya".

They cannot change into a race bigger than large sized or smaller than small sized. The Lizardfolk can also change into a hybridized form between the two races. (For example; A male Flat-Tail sees a nearby Elven woman. He can assume the race and becomes an Elf. He then sees a Titan. The Titan being bigger than large is unaccessable to the Lizardfolk.) With these changes, the base stats and abilities do not change. You need a True Seeing effect to be able to determine the true race if they are entirely disguised as a race.
