A person with the head of a deer.

Deer men are animal people variants of the common deer who can be found in savage temperate forests and taigas. They spawn in groups of 1-5 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are almost twice the weight of a dwarf, leading to confrontations between them being heavily in the deer man's favor unless the dwarf is properly armored and equipped.

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

Some dwarves like deer men for their grace.

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

Their deadliness and cruel nature rivals that of moose men.

Still tastes like venison.
