The argonian (sub-species of lizard) is a playable race specific to Slash'EM Extended. They can be any role and alignment, and start out with the healing hands technique. Argonians also have intrinsic swimming and unbreathing, allowing them to overeat and traverse water. Their maximum stats are as follows:

Strategy

Being an unbreathing race, argonians can eat as much as they like with no risk of choking to death. Their swimming allows them to pass water on Medusa's level and similar places, and they can't be drowned either. By using the healing hands technique, they can restore quite some hit points every once in a while.

Lizard-type monsters (anything represented by a : character) are usually peaceful for an argonian character. Eating them is not considered cannibalism; eating humans is, though.
