Marshshadow Lizardfolk[edit]


They are proud and arrogant and are usually extremely hostile toward humans who trespass into the deep jungles,in their culture only the most powerful warrior rules the tribe.

Physical Description[edit]

Marshshadows usually stand 6 to 7 feet tall with green, dark bronze and gray scales to help them blend into the murky water.The Marshshadow has a crocodile like head,they are equipped with jagged teeth that can deliever a powerful bite that can crush bone, tear and fillet meat. Their eyes are a very deep yellow or sometimes orange. Their thick neck connect to a lean but surprisingly muscular body.They use their tail for balance and propeling itself through the water,the tail is about 3 to 4 feet long. Marshshadow's are sometimes surprisingly strong for their wiry frames.


Marsh shadows tend to keep to themselves, but of course they will do trade when in need of supplies or if given contracts to navigate people through the unforgiving swamps. Most people think of them as savages,for this reason people tend not to trust the marsh shadow.


Marsh shadows live very difficult lives so they generally care not for morals, their main concern is survival above all else.


They live in the Moonshadow Jungles and in the marshes of South Karma. Preferring to inhabit the bogs and the deadly jungles in the southern regions, these Green-scaled lizardfolk are well adapted to their semi-aquatic life. Like their animal cousins, marsh shadows often hunt by lieing half-submerged in the dark, reedy water of their homes, hoping to ambush any creature which wanders too close.


Most Duneswift Lizardfolk worship gods of the wilderness, such as Kephra God of Weather and animals.


They are the speakers of the Umbrese tongue. Which orginated in their homeland of the Moonshadow Jungles. Mainy also learn Draconic.


Lizardfolk names are invariably Draconic nouns with some relation to the swamp.
