Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Just a buffed version of the already comparatively strong Lizardfolk and uses incomplete and incorrect wording throughout. The traits need to be mechanically worded correctly. Overall poor and needs a rework both from a mechanic and lore perspective to better integrate with the first party content. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and see the Featured Articles pages for some exemplary content.

Lizard-Folk[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Lizard-folk are a well built and burly race standing at 6 to 7 feet tall, and weighting around 200 to 300 pounds.

Society[edit]

Fiercely territorial, they use camouflaged scouts to guard the perimeter of their domain. When unwelcome visitors are detected, a tribe sends a hunting band to harass or drive the trespassers off, or tricks them into blundering into the lairs of crocodiles and other dangerous creatures. Lizard-folk have no notion of traditional morality, and they find the concepts of good and evil utterly alien. Truly neutral creatures, they kill when it is expedient and do whatever it takes to survive
