What's the deal with dragonnewts?
The dragonewts are one of the non-human Elder Races – the eldest, according to them. They are enigmatic in the extreme. They subscribe to the views of draconic mysticism, which holds that all existence is an illusion. They hope to one day surmount and overcome the illusions of reality by rejoining the spirit of Ouroboros. This is a process that happens over many lifetimes – literal lifetimes, since the dragonewt must commit the ritual suicide of utuma to move onto the next stage of their spiritual development.
