If I recall correctly, Karbo has mentioned the existence of naga tribes where the nagas are roughly human sized. Has anyone developed this idea any?

There are actually many groups of human-sized hybrids. There are nagas, but you also get human-sized Dridders, Mermaids, Elves and Harpies as well. It has been hinted, although never officially confirmed, that these smaller hybrids actually greatly outnumber the giant varieties. Their larger relatives just tend to get more of the spotlight.

As for being developed as a group? Not really. You have a couple here and there (and even then, it seems like most human-sized naga characters wind up coming from offworld), but nothing significant from what I've seen. Like I mentioned before, the giant ones tend to hog the spotlight.

If someone is talking about a "naga" it is always assumed they are talking about human sized nagas.
If they are talking about "giant nagas" then obviously they are referring to the giant naga variant.


The Lydronite islands of Shatterock Caldera have humans and nagas living together.

I have several human sized nagas, so... well, yeah, I've developed this idea a ton. I guess most see them as giant nagas because that seemed to be the main trend; giant predators. I guess because they're so much smaller, people generally concentrate on them less, especially when most art/stories/ect. contain giant nagas and other similar creatures, like dridders, mermaids, and the like.

Yes, a smaller version of naga exists, though it isn't spoken of often.

The ones that can morph between human and snake form are special and are called Lamia.

And apparently are all female.

...and not a Felaryan race. The only Lamia I ever knew of was Flare's character, and she came from offworld.

There was a Lamia in timing2's Galya portal story. Other than that, I don't recall anything.

Actually, there are human sized nagas all over Shatterock Caldera. Although it's not a canonized region, it's fleshed out pretty well.
