- A huge monster with an enormous tail, covered with thick fur. They run on four legs and can be found deep under the earth.
Rutherers are massive creatures who can be found meandering at the second and third layers of the caverns, appearing in groups of 3 to 7 individuals. An adult rutherer weights around 3 tons, which is about 50 times bigger than a dwarf, though despite this they are in fact entirely benign, fleeing from anything they may consider a threat. In the event they engage dwarves in battle, they will use their massive size to easily tear them apart with bites and kicks. They are exotic mounts and may be ridden by goblins during sieges.
Rutherers can be captured in cage traps and trained into valuable pets. They provide a great quantity of returns when butchered, and products made from their parts are worth 3 times more than those of common domestic animals. This makes the idea of a rutherer farm an attractive one, especially since the creatures constantly give birth to more than one baby at a time. However, rutherers only reach their maximum size after 5 years, considerably longer than most sources of food.
Some dwarves like rutherers for their enormous tails.
