A powerful and aggressive tribe of Lizardfolk that live in the Greenfang. Unlike other tribes, the Blackscale are a separate and distinct phenotype with jet-black scales over most of their bodies and generally larger and more muscular frames. There is consensus among sages that their differences are the result of long and frequent comingling of Blackscale stock with one or more black dragons. There have been multiple sightings of half-dragon Blackscale with wings and acid breath leading war parties.
For some of the late 8200s and early 8300s the Blackscale were engaged in a widespread and highly successful expansion, at their peak controlling over a quarter of the territory in the Greenfang. The Sharpclaw tribe was nearly wiped out, and the Blue Crest were reduced to less than half their number and lost most of their lands. In 8323 Hyoden came to the Greenfang looking for Nirhain’s Folly and aided some Blue Crest groups against the Blackscale. After destroying two raiding groups with the aid of Shamarkhalash, a Blue Crest Druid, and his warriors, the groups eventually tracked down and killed a young black dragon that was leading the Blackscale according to the direction of its mother, the Font of Poison.
The Blackscale are still active in the Greenfang, but their current strength and status are unknown.
