Monsters > Beastman > Ratman


Ratman is a bipedal rat. 

"Out of deep places of foul magic, a tribe of giant, upright rats emerged. Crude though their weapon and armor may be, many an adventurer, deep in a dungeon, has found himself suddenly ringed by a sea of red, hungry eyes and dully glinting swords".

Ratmen are not strong but gain strength in numbers.
