Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: This race seems overpowered compared to similar first-party races, and would benefit from having less powerful traits. For example, tremorsense, Acid Spit is stronger than most basic abilities, unconditional advantage, etc. Consult the 5e Race Design Guide for help and consider checking out some of the comparable Featured Articles.
