The maragroth are miners living in the caves of the saloothian forest. They have the ability to use echolocation which keeps them from being snuck up on in the dark. Outsiders are rarely tolerated in their domain and those caught trespassing are killed on sight. Those that are allowed access are extremely lucky for they get to behold some of the most amazing stonework on the planet. Their domains stretch vastly through the great cave systems deep below the forest. Getting deeper and wider everyday as all the miners constantly carry pickaxes and use them whenever they think they’ve found something. The maragroth also forge their ore into weapons, armor, and stronger pickaxes. Most miners even wield their pickaxes as weapon if they are called upon to fight. The maragroth weapons are nothing special but their armor is extraordinarily durable. Their fighters carry daggers and sometimes handguns modified for their size. They don’t tend to bother with distance because they mostly fight in tight tunnels though the city defenders commonly wield rifles; they are anything but great marksmen. Some maragroth dig too far away from civilization and are driven mad by it. Those individuals strike out at all they see and perform unspeakable acts. Maragroths dislike killing their own and often ask for assistance from others when it comes to having to take care of what they call the nougral. This is a good way to gain the favor of the city and gain access to their domain. Their city beneath the earth is known as Tabira.
