Barbarian Conqueror King setting for the Adventurer Conqueror King System (ACKS). While other sentient species other than Men and Lizardmen exist in this world, most of them are monstrous and ardent followers of Chaos (Toadmen are an example of this). Lizardmen, on the other hand, exhibit a full range of beliefs and personalities, similar to what Humans do; some are Lawful and follow their goddess Ixchala; most are Neutral; and some are Chaotic and follow the dread gods of their old Serpentmen masters.
In this setting, not all Lizardmen are the savages depicted in the typical D&D setting. While some live in savage barbarity in the jungles and swamps, others have built, and still inhabit, massive cities, not least of which is the city called Cibola by humans - a massive Class II market rich beyond belief and sprawling over several large islands in its lake.
A Lizardman in Barbarian Conqueror King looks like an upright, anthropomorphic Water Monitor, with a long tail, a forked tongue and a brain-case worthy of its human-like intelligence. Lizardmen are hardy survivors, bred for manual labor and as cannon-fodder by the dead Serpentmen eons ago. They fight very well and thrive in warm, humid, watery environments, such as their homeland of Punt. Lizardmen are warm-blooded (though they resent cold climate) and are omnivores, albeit with a taste for fresh meat and fish.
For the most part, all Lizardmen classes (which I'll use later) will use the Thrassian racial stats from ACKS' Player's Companion (ACKS-PC); all will take 2 points in Lizardman ("Thrassian") and then add other abilities and classes as these fit the class. However, all will trade the Infravision 60' of the default Thrassian class for two custom powers common to all Lizardmen: Predatory Nature (Ambush) and Natural Camouflage (Difficult to Spot).
There are five Lizardman classes: Hunter, Gladiator, Priest, Warrior and Witch-Doctor.
Lizardman Hunters are masters of stealth, particularly in the wild; most savage Lizardmen are Hunters. In game terms, they combine the Assassin and the Explorer: adept at moving in the wild and deadly when they strike their prey. They should use minimal armour. In ACKS-PC terms, they're Lizardman 2, Hit Die 1, Fighting 1 (2 due to the Lizardman bonus), Thievery 1, Divine 0, and Arcane 0 (I'll detail the custom powers later). They can go up to level 12.
Lizardman Gladiators are bred by Human nobles in the city-states of the north to fight in the pit for their amusement, and, if there is a powerful mage on retainer, also improved by cross-breeding with Humans (which is possible only by magic). They use the exact stats of the Thrassian Gladiator from ACKS-PC, except for trading Infravision for Predatory Nature and Natural Camouflage as all Lizardmen.
Lizardman Priests worship Ixchala, or, alternatively, the various Chaotic gods of the dead Serpentmen. Priestesses of Ixchala can Turn Undead; Chaotic Priests can Rebuke and Control Undead. They are similar to clerics in game stats but more lightly armoured, and, of course, possessing all Lizardman traits. They also fight with sharp blades - especially sacrificial daggers - as well as bows. In ACKS-PC terms, they're Lizardman 2, Hit Die 1, Fighting 0 (1 due to the Lizardman bonus), Thievery 0, Divine 2, and Arcane 0 (I'll detail the custom powers later). They can go up to level 12.
Lizardman Warriors are totemic - each warrior is guided in combat by a totem, usually a reptile, amphibian or insect one. They wear light armour and can use all weapons, and get a Totem like a Shaman. In ACKS-PC terms, they're Lizardman 2, Hit Die 1, Fighting 1 (2 due to the Lizardman bonus), Thievery 0, Divine 0, and Arcane 0 (I'll detail the custom powers later). They can go up to level 13.
Lizardman Witch Doctors are the tribal sorcerers and urban sooth-sayers of the Lizardmen; they traffick with spirits and daemons and master the powers of fate. In game terms theycast arcane spells and fight a bit better than Wizards, at the expense of slower levelling. They also gain some special powers similar to those of a Warlock. In ACKS-PC terms, they're Lizardman 2, Hit Die 0, Fighting 0 (1 due to the Lizardman bonus), Thievery 0, Divine 0, and Arcane 3 (I'll detail the custom powers later). They can go up to level 12.
Note that Human spellcasters can gain a higher level and gain it far more quickly than Lizardmen. This is due to the vastness of Human ambition, which usually has painful costs as well.
