Play a Tren if you want...
- to combine lizardfolk cunning and troglodyte brutality;
- to be a deadly reptilian literally bred to battle;
- to mercilessly torment your opponents around the battlefield;
- To be a member of a race that favors the Avenger, Barbarian, Figher, Monk, Ranger and Warden classes.
Average tren are high as humans, but tall individuals may be tall as a dragonborn. they resemble lizardfolk in shape, with a lizardlike face and a long, strong tail suitable for swim, but they have thicker scales and a wider, bulkier body structure typical of troglodytes. as troglodytes, tren secrete a musky odor when they are raging or frightnened that they show discrete ability to use for disorientate opponents, and their eyes are able to see in darkness. Tren scale color may be both lizardfolk-like(greenish\kaki) and troglodyte-like(graysh\white) kind, and sometimes even a combination of the two, for example a silverly or olive green. Thanks their dual heritage, tren are greatly versatile warriors, able to fit every role on the battlefield, but they are not exactly the best spellcasters.
Playing a Tren
Tren are essentially warriors, working to find a balance between instinct and tactics. even if their intelligence is mostly focused on military and battle, this does not mean they are just mindless thugs: they are perfectly able to apply their warlike attitude in resoning, tactically planning their moves and thinking before acting, a tren rarely acts imprudently. Tren do not undestand the concept of family, as they normally consider their own tribe as a family, and consider the idea of restricted family a clue of the non-scaled ones's stupidity. because of their stench, tren are mostly spited by civilized humanoids, and so tren prefer the company of other scaled ones such as yuan-ti and troglodytes, and form strong fire-forged friendship with other warlike reptilians such as khaasta, asabi and dragonborn.
