Thuria and Beyond
Details are per Monster Manual 3 (need conversion to 1E stats). This race of sentient lizards are native to the south-easternmost part of the Talamka Mountains, between the lands of Meru and Kosala. Their culture is quite primitive and their ability to produce well-made weapons or equipment is limited. However, these creatures are the remnants of a once powerful pre-human civilisation centred around an ancient lizardfolk city named Haka’torvhak. Once an important and bustling population centre, this city is now ruined, destroyed by a combination of forgotten battles and numerous earthquakes. The blackscale lizardfolk regard the ruins of Haka’torvhak as a sacred place. Much of their best weaponry, jewellery and suchlike comes from the vaults of the ancient city.
