Scaled Horror - Monster Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Scaled horrors are elite amphibious soldiers. They specialize in guarding the watery borders of lizardfolk domains. Striking abruptly from the water's edge, they leave fear and destruction in their wake. Many an unwary intruder is last seen as a trail of bubbles in the marsh waters, taken below by scaled horrors.
Lizardfolk are the most common scaled horrors, but locathahs, merfolk, and sahuagin sometimes have similar guardians. Occasionally kuo-toas train as scaled horrors as well.
As NPCs, scaled horrors work in squads of 2 - 5 members along the edges of their people's domains. They sometimes serve other races as mercenaries, but always in situations where they can fight from the water. They rarely work alone, but even a solitary scaled horror is a skilled guerrilla.
