Astonishing Torchbearers of Hyperborea
This region of coastal marshlands is inhabited by reptilian humanoids known as lizard-men; how they refer to themselves in their own sibilant tongue cannot be vocalized by men. These creatures are intelligent, though not particularly advanced. They are presumed not to have solved the riddle of steel, yet nearly every tribe protects its semi-aquatic lair with modern weaponry. Many lizard-men of this region ride giant draco-lizards, which they fit with saddles.
Lizard Coast is inhabited by many species of aquatic and semi-aquatic monsters, especially giant snakes and the oft-sought thew wagons. Massive species of giant elk dwell here, too. Lizard Coast is notorious for several deadly forms of lotus, which men seek for various diabolical schemes. Other reports mention deadly plants and trees perhaps tainted by Evil, as well as restless spirits and like horrors.
Expeditions into Lizard Coast are no doubt perilous, for although lizard-men typically avoid men, they can become violent upon intrusion. Whether the lizard-men make war on one another is not confirmed. They are generally understood to engage in ancestor worship and venerate Xathoqqua, whose ancient shrines are scattered about the coast.
