Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Emu men are animal people variants of the common emu who inhabit savage temperate forests and shrublands. They spawn in groups of anywhere between 1-5 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are a little smaller than the average dwarf.

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

Some dwarves like emu men for their size and their inquisitive nature.

Clothing in-game is vastly different.
