Shrykes are a race of legendary creatures said to inhabit the land beyond the Five Forts, east of the southern half of the Bleeding Sea and south of K'Dath.[1]

Shrykes are said to be half-human beings with green-scaled skin and venomous bites. They supposedly fear the city of K'Dath.[2]


Are these truly lizard-men, or (more likely) men clad in the skins of lizards? Or are they no more than fables, the grumkins and snarks of the eastern deserts?[2]
