This article is about an older version of DF.
An evil humanoid with a long tail, black spiky fur and a twitching nose. It lives far underground.

Rodent men are found in caverns. They can form a crude civilization and usually have a few leather hides and meat scattered around.

They carry wooden weapons which aren't much of a threat to armored dwarves. However their blowdarts can sometimes carry a deadly syndrome

Overall however, they prove to be less of a threat then most other animal tribes due to their small size and unlike most other underground civilizations they cannot swim. But one shouldn't engage them with unarmored or unskilled dwarves as they may still get the upper hand.
