Project Realm. Peoples of the Realm 7. Lizardfolk

Yes! After a long absence Project Realm has finally returned! I’m really looking forward to get back to further shape this world and its inhabitants. The last couple of entries dealt with the five Northern anthropomorphic species (Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Orks and Hobbits) as well as the Goblins. Today we go to the Island of the Cold-Blooded to introduce the Lizardfolk! Because they consist of various species I decided to give each of those a seperate entry during the coming weeks and use this entry as a short introduction.

As you might have noticed, most of the names of the Lizardfolk species are taken directly from the Warhammer fantasy universe, one of the settings that has strongly influenced the Realm. The only exception are the Pantathiëns, whose name came from Raymond E. Feist‘s Riftwar Cycle, some of which I read a long time ago. I’ve mentioned this before, but I thought I’d mention it again just in case: this was never intended as stealing or ripping off anything, but rather the attempt by a boy to pay homage to these settings that inspired him so much!

But enough talk! It is time, now, to return the Realm! Welcome back! ^_^


Peoples of the Realm

7. The Lizardfolk
The peoples commonly known as the Lizardfolk are a collective of various anthropomorphic amphibian and reptilian species living on the Island of the Cold-Blooded, which was called after the name they use for themselves. They consider themselves one united people and have a couple of similarities. All are, as the name implies, cold-blooded and while their manner of reproduction varies, all lay eggs. Otherwise, however, the sapient Lizardfolk species are very distinct from one another. These species can be divided into two main groups, the Elder and Younger Lizardfolk, which each in turn can be divided in two different species. The Elder Lizardfolk consist of 1) the Slann, toad mages and the Lizardfolk’s \rulers, and 2) the Pantathiëns, the serpent priests. Among the Younger Lizardfolk are counted 3) the brutish crocodile-like Kroxigor and 4) the Skinks, a small but numerous lizard species making up the vast majority of the Lizardfolk population. Each of these four species shall be discussed seperately.

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
