Archosaurians, or Tiacauh as they are known in some regions, resemble humans with pointed ears and a scaly crocodilian tail. Many of them have yellow eyes, and their hair often comes in shades of green. Their slender forms hide great strength and durability, and even the most unassuming archosaurian can lay an enemy low with their powerful bite and a great sweep of their tail.
Mostly being found in the jungles of Sargon, archosaurians have always been a traditional race, often at the cost of technological advances. Leaders of the various tribes, or chieftains as they are called, are always decided through physical violence. The celebration and resulting brawl, known as the "Mahuizzotia" is when all the worthy archosaurian tribes gather together for a massive all out fist fight to decide the great chieftain. This great chieftain is comparable to a king, his or her word becoming law until the next Mahuizzotia where the most impressive warriors will gather again to challenge the old great chief and begin the cycle anew. Their language of Sargonian is similar to tribal languages found in the Amazon region.
Archosaurian society is based upon physical prowess and strength alone. Disagreements and the election of leaders are typically settled through a martial duel, going until one competitor is beaten into submission and, in some cases, death. Most archosaurians live in tribes of various sizes in the swamplands of Acahualla, these tribes usually maintaining outside contact, but not much more than that. Apart from physical strength, archosaurians have immense pride in their tails, of which many fights have been caused. To this day, many "Scholars" like to "Debate" which kind of tail is superior, skinny or thick. Because of this, most outsiders are quite wary of archosaurians, with the tribes being known as impulsive and quick-tempered.
Names for both males and females are often simplistic. though it is not unheard of for some to be influenced by foreign cultures and the outside world as a whole, choosing to adopt a more "civilized" name.

Tail. Being the object of great pride for Archosaurians, its only natural that they use their tails in combat.

You can only use this feature an amount of times equal to your Strength modifier, regaining all use after finishing a long rest.
