From The Regnum Animale by Bishop Vitellus of Oaken:
East of High Aquilaria and south of Aurore is the continent of Ophidia. The Ophidian Empire has ever been an enemy of the Avians, and their animosity is legendary among Mammalia. Only the Amphibia of Bulwarkeen seem to have had any lasting peace with them. Reptilians are the only inhabitants of Ophidia, and the Empire for which it is named rules them with murderous tyranny. The Ophidian Sorcerer-Kings sacrifice Fauna upon their altars to appease their infernal mistress, Tiamat. Even their own are not safe from sacrifice, for when captives cannot be taken in war, they must be taken from among the populace. All manner of blasphemous evils are practiced in Ophidia. Though I pray for the salvation of the Reptilians, it cannot be said that they have not earned the divine fire that our crusading Knights Argent and Knights Radiant have historically rained upon them.
I gather your account is gleaned from Ye Chronicles of Fra' Constantinus of Orvorc, which is a trustworthy but outdated document. The Ophidian Empire still holds sway, but there are other cultures among the Reptilians who do not share the Empire's bloodlust and demon-worshiping ways. I hear word that even Avian advisors may be found in certain Reptilian courts. A new crusade may find allies among the Reptilians if the downfall of the Ophidians is our primary goal. – Benevolus
