Lizardfolk of the Dragon Fang is the next supplement in the TRIBES series for Pathfinder, While its a continuation of the series, the presentation is different than the most previous few supplements. As opposed to taking a single creature and giving it a “society” to be a part of, Lizardfolk of the Dragon Fang is a mish-mash of different lizard-type creatures. The supplement spends less time looking at the background of the group and instead details different warrior and spellcaster with a range of ratings and a grouping of powerful NPCs. To add to these creature stats is a grouping of new feats, spells and magic items.
Lizardfolk of the Dragon Fang is a great addition to the TRIBES series of supplements, although it carries similar qualities to that of the GMs Resource line. Instead of running static encounters with boring and mundane creatures, this supplement adds depth to the ranks of those creatures, gives them some type of purpose and brings in a powerful leader.
Lizardfolk of the Dragon Fang is a great tool to enhance or add dimension to an encounter the GM has already constructed. The supplement gives the GM more options for lizard-type creatures with various CRs and a (small) pool of leaders to choose from. While the group itself contains a listed background with characteristics, the are more of a “plug-in” creature group rather than a main focus for an adventure or for creating the framework of a campaign. It’s a valuable tool when it comes to creating more interesting encounters.
