SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

Enter the Dragon
To those who have heard the legends, they require no introduction. They are the greatest of Gaia's shifting children. They are the ones who remember the days of the dinosaurs and draw upon the power of the Age of Reptiles. None can equal their wisdom when they are calm, and none can stand before them when they are angry. They are the Children of Dragon. The crocodile-shifters. The Mokolé.

The Children of Sun Rise Again
You've demanded it. Now it's here. Mokolé details the werecrocodilians of the World of Darkness, and reveals information never before seen about Dragon's children.

NoteEdit

The description of the Lizard Kings in Mokolé contains several homages to novels about dinosaur and lizard civilizations, and some of the lexicon are taken from these books. The Dinosaur King focus on biotechnology, and the names yilanè, Entoban, Ambalasokei, Gendasi, and Alpèasak are from the Eden trilogy by Harry Harrison. The name heesh comes from Dinosaur Nexus by Lee Grimes, and whileelin is from Toolmaker Koan by John McLoughlin. The name quintaglio and the character Sal-Afsan the Farseer were taken from Far-Seer, the first book of the Quintaglio Ascension trilogy by Robert J. Sawyer. However, Bandaiyan and Ulungan (more usually Ulangun) are real-world names. In turn, the Dragon Kings in Exalted are strongly based on the Lizard Kings.
