Mostly live in swamps and jungle, but occasionally one of them gets curious and goes adventuring. Lizardfolk skin is drab green-gray in humid environments, brown-gray in very dry weather, and turns dark green-gray underwater.

  • Unusual anatomy: Lizardfolk cannot wear boots or armor that does not accommodate their tail.

Lizardfolk are an underclass in the Dragonborn Empire, considered to not be worth the trouble of enslaving. Instead they’re used as menial servants. Dragonborn typically don’t bother to learn the names of their servants; lizardfolk are generally addressed as “tilsi” (lizard) by their dragonborn masters. Few lizardfolk are literate, and as such lizardfolk storytellers & spiritual leaders have a strong oral tradition.
