Cheetah men are animal people variants of the common cheetah who can be found in savage tropical grasslands. They spawn in groups of 1-5 individuals and are not too aggressive, but may pick fights with dwarves who get too close. Much like their animal cousins, cheetah men are extremely fast, running at 87 km/h (the max gait speed handled by the game), making them the fastest animal people on land. They are exactly the same size as dwarves.

Like other savage animal people, they can join civilizations, become historical figures, appear as visitors and be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like cheetah men for their speed.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.


There were to be no Cheetah Men, because the dwarves saw what happened last time and decided it would be unhealthy for the game's functionality. No midair dying was be implemented either. Additionally, Cheetah Men have no relation to any edible puffed cornmeal cheese products.

Sweet Armok, they tried to warn us. But now, it is too late.
