The symbol of the Lizardman religion.

Finding information about the religion is the Lizardmen is not hard at all - there are lots of clues, influence in present-day religions, archaeological sites, and off course: the people. The lizardmen’s empire is long gone, but the now-nomadic lizardmen still practice their old religion. According to research, the lizardmen continued the religion of the Ancients, belief in the balance between Order and Chaos: You give, you take. After the Maessepreost Despotanfras race became extinct, the lizardmen started to employ men from their own race as priests, who led the rituals. All we know is that the warriors worshipped chaos, so that would give them superhuman-like strength, while the average townsfolk prayed to the Order, so they would get good harvest. That’s what the core of the religion was like and still is like.

Unfortunately we can’t say too much about their religion. The priests of the Lizardman Empire used the old Ancient Temples to sacrifice animals and goods in order to please the gods. But like many religions, it started to gray as the time passed. Expansion was stopped, people stopped to pray to the Chaos, and the religion become more and more corrupt with the sacrifices. They even started to practice cruel and inhumane man-sacrifices. The balance broke and problems rose again. However the Empire was already too big to support itself, and to care about such small problems. Some people heeded the priests, while some - like the Emperor - didn’t, so the religion and the imperial government started to weaken each other.
