Saurian (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
As the elder wizard looked through his books he searched for a fitting description of a reptile. The wizard looked up at the Saurian and studied its anatomy, "What are you?" The wizard asked.
Reptilian scales The Sauria are not to be confused with lizard folk. They have a much more humanoid appearance and a longer curled up tail. They come in the following colors: red, green, blue and purple. They do not have fins like lizard folk and do not like to swim very often. They have an advanced knowledge of steam and the use of poison. They have tongues that can elongate to up to 5ft and it also delivers a sharp and precise blow and also slowly poisons the victim, until they die or find a cure. Not much else is known about this ancient species.
Vivid adapters Sauria, when they lived in the material world used to be able to adapt to any climate. You could find some in the center of a desert, some in a swamp and others in grasslands or forests. They can live underground and can go longer than most humans without eating or drinking.
The Sauria are a proud reptilian race, they made astounding advanced technologies and used to produce the smartest minds. Until they were attacked by the other amphibious creatures, like bullywugs and lizard folk. Afraid that other civilisations would steal their grasp of magic and technology they hid away. They let their paranoia get the better of them. They have not been seen for eras. When they are seen in public they get mixed reactions, some treat them like their cousins, lizard folk and some study them.
Family names Saurians family names (or what humans call surnames) were determined by their colours and their role in society. For example a red warrior Saurians family name might be blood-axe. Saurian often change their family name when they move roles or they don't find it fitting any longer.
