Fox men are animal people variants of the common fox who inhabit savage temperate forests and taigas. They spawn in groups of 2-10 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are roughly half the weight of the average dwarf.

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

Some dwarves like fox men for their cunning.

The culture of fox men places a high value on tradition, family, and national pride. Their preferred economic model is free-market capitalism, in stark contrast to the dwarves' centrally-planned economy.
