The Goblin Chronicles
Chief Predator of the fens
The brackish fens that cover the eastern approaches to The Cauldron are home to not only lizard men, but also to a species of dwarf crocodile that is both highly active, agile and smarter than their larger cousins. On occasion, these creatures swim up the streams into the ponds of the dale to forage, and can hunt on land, but prefer not to unless very hungry. The creatures prefer to lunge at prey from hiding and drag it into the water to drown. They rarely attack armed creatures, preferring stragglers or unwary individuals who seek to water themselves in its pond or stream. Unless disturbed, they tend to be active only during the day.
