This article is about the current version of DF.
These creatures are shaped like men covered with rough scales. They have the head and tail of a lizard and possess a dark and evil intelligence. They are found deep under the earth.

Reptile men are one of the many underworld tribal races of animal people, living on any cavern level milling around piles of meat and tanned hides. They stand at roughly the size of an adult dwarf. Despite being described as humanoid lizards, they are a separate species from the lizard man.

Approach with caution, unless the tribe is friendly. If the tribe is friendly, feel free to take advantage of them in fine imperialistic tradition and steal all their resources without compensation. To check whether a tribe of reptile men is friendly, press u to view the unit list. The tribe will be labeled as either hostile or friendly. Alternatively, press v to view one of their profiles.

Like many underground races, the danger of reptile men is not to be found in their wooden weapons, but in the substances found smeared on them. Reptile men use many poisons, some of which can be deadly. They will launch group attacks on your fort, and have the ability to swim through your reservoirs and launch amphibious assaults on your fisherdwarves. Despite their description, they do not possess the [EVIL] token and are not anymore malevolent than any other race of animal people.

If you ssspeak to a reptile man in adventure mode, they will talk like thisss, becaussse of the [LISP] token.

Some dwarves like reptile men for their terrifying features.

Not always as menacing as pictured.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

The dwarves do not seem to worship this creature, and no mentions of them secretly ruling the world have been found in engravings. However, they can often be found in the deepest caverns nearest to the magma sea.
