Background[edit | edit source]

The Lizardmen, particularly Skinks outside the temple-cities, worship the great god Itzl - the three-horned ruler of coldblooded beasts. The remaining temples of Itzl are always distant structures deep in the jungles of Lustria. Many feature great gongs, instruments rung only when sacrifices have been tied to attract Itzl's creatures out of the impenetrable forests to feed.

It is said that in order to master the mighty Horned Ones, a warrior must be blessed in the sight of Itzl. Such warriors are extremely rare and are often spawned alone. Those especially favoured by Itzl may sport massive crests upon their heads, marking them out from the moment they come forth from the spawning pools. Truly, these riders are great warriors, fated to perform mighty deeds in the holy name of the god of beasts.
