 Lizard tyrants are a larger, more intelligent breed of lizard men and usually encountered lording it over their 'lesser' brethren. Unlike normal lizard men, they often engage in cannibalism if no other fresh meat is available to satiate their rapacious hunger. Lizard tyrants are a larger, more intelligent breed of lizard men and usually encountered lording it over their 'lesser' brethren.

-Lizard tyrants wield vicious tridents in melee which inflict 5d4 points of damage. If their to-hit roll result is 18-20, they have impaled their victim and inflict double normal damage. These weapons are unwieldy and anyone except a Lizard Tyrant that attempts to use them in combat will suffer the standard untrained penalty and cannot impale victims.   Other than the exceptions noted, lizard tyrants are identical to normal lizard men in all other respects. +Lizard tyrants wield vicious tridents in melee which inflict 5d4 points of damage.

 **Treasure**: Lizard tyrants are exceptionally greedy and if encountered in their lair will have a hoard containing 1d10 x 1,000cp (10%), 1d12 x 1,000sp (25%), 1d6 x 1,000ep (25%), 1d8 x 1,000gp (25%), 1d12 gems (15%), 1d8 pieces of jewelry (10%), and 1d4 magic items (25%).  **Treasure**: Lizard tyrants are exceptionally greedy and if encountered in their lair will have a hoard containing 1d10 x 1,000cp (10%), 1d12 x 1,000sp (25%), 1d6 x 1,000ep (25%), 1d8 x 1,000gp (25%), 1d12 gems (15%), 1d8 pieces of jewelry (10%), and 1d4 magic items (25%).

- Giant ant lions are large, predatory insects that live in rocky desert areas. They construct tapered pits (around 60' diameter) that often (50% chance) appear like cave mouths. Any creature entering their pit may (1 in 2 chance per round) trip and slide further down the rocky, loose sides to the bottom where the ant lion buries itself awaiting the prey. It will burst out of the soil and attack with its two large mandibles. If it successfully hits, the victim will be held fast and cannot escape unless the ant lion is killed. Each round the mandibles will automatically inflict 5d4 points of damage to trapped prey. +Giant ant lions are large, predatory insects that live in rocky desert areas.

-** Treasure**: Ant lions do not value treasure, but there is a 30% of 1d4 items of incidental treasure that belonged to former victims. The GM should roll on the following table to determine such treasure: +**Treasure**: Ant lions do not value treasure, but there is a 30% of 1d4 items of incidental treasure that belonged to former victims.

- Greater basilisks are larger, more fearsome cousins of the common basilisk (q.v. __OSRIC__, pp. 262-3). Because of their bellicose nature and powerful abilities they are often employed as guardians of treasure hoards. +Greater basilisks are larger, more fearsome cousins of the common basilisk (q.v. __OSRIC__, pp. 262-3).

- In melee, a greater basilisk attacks with it's two front claws and a bite. It's claws drip with a weak poison (+ to Saving Throws) and it's breath is also poisonous (all within a 5' radius must Save vs. Poison at +2 or die). It's most terrible attack is its petrifying gaze effective up to 50' away. Attempts to reflect the greater basilisk's gaze will fail unless within 10' of the beast and have a 10% of success per round. +In melee, a greater basilisk attacks with it's two front claws and a bite.

- Most sages believe greater basilisks originate on the Elemental Plane of Fire. Like lesser basilisks they are capable of seeing into both the Astral and Æthereal Planes.  +Most sages believe greater basilisks originate on the Elemental Plane of Fire.
