Their sub-human intelligence is driven by the worship of primitive gods; vile fusions of reptile, insect and slime or tentacled horrors of living madness.
The vilest magic and the most dangerous alchemical experiments are carried out by the sorcerers of the Black Ring Citadel. The chambers below have become polluted over the centuries and this has had a strange effect on the lizards dwelling in the lightless sewers below. Whether their evolution has regressed or accelerated is not known for sure but the existence of these hybrid humanoid reptiles is well known…and feared by the Stygian population above.
Their sub-human intelligence is driven by the worship of primitive gods; vile fusions of reptile, insect and slime or tentacled horrors of living madness. However, they are god-like beings that heed the call of their worshippers and bestow alien, shamanistic spells on their most blood-soaked and faithful.
The Scaleskins are blamed for disappearances in the city above but in fact they are content to dwell in the lightless chambers beneath and perform their cultish rites, but to what end is not known. However, anyone foolish enough to trespass in their territory risks a grisly fate, being torn part alive and consumed by these gibbering, howling monstrosities.
