Men are citizens of Gielinor found all over the world, usually in towns. From a gameplay perspective, they are very similar to women, the only major differences being their appearance and name. They can be attacked, talked to, and pickpocketed.

Pickpocketing[edit | edit source]

Men, women, and pompous merchants can be used to start Thieving by pickpocketing them at level 1. After the Lost Her Marbles caper from the Thieves' Guild, a successful pickpocket gives 20 coins.
