An entry for Seventh Sanctum's Fantasy Folk contest. The Fantasy Race Generator stuck me with the following awesome description:
"The race of Basilisk-people. Their culture has some strict regulations on technology. Their government is ethical in its own way."
So I looked up an actual lizard called a basilisk, and the description made me think of the amish, then voila!
Amish lizard folk that farm a seemingly inhospitable desert under three varying suns. Ma and Pa touring their dirt farms.
