What’s this thing called ‘man’?
God only knows what a man is!
I only know his price.”
-Bertolt Brecht, “The Measures Taken”. 1930.

Useful Info

Humans are uncommon creatures in the dungeon and generally aren't very threatening. If you see one, it's either a shapeshifter, a sign of a nearby vault (e.g., "yak farm" or "sword in the stone"), or an outrider for one of a few uniques.

Tips & Tricks

Although generally very easy if you meet them, humans can be dangerous if spawned with crossbows, branded weapons, or tower shields, and they pack a surprisingly strong punch if they meet a low-level character.

Variant Humans
