A Lizard man is an unreleased non-player character who was added to the game with the RuneScape 2 beta, but never actually released. It was completely removed from the game with the release of the Artisans' Workshop in 2011.
In 2011, Paul Gower explained that Jagex weren't too eager to develop them because they would look too similar to dragonkin[source needed]. Despite this, the concept of a race of lizard creatures was eventually released in 2014 in the form of the Ilujanka. In Old School RuneScape, lizard men were featured in the game's first birthday event in 2014, and a new incarnation of lizardmen were released in 2016.
