Diamond Dogs[edit]


Diamond Dogs normally are on the search for gemstones to collect in their cavernous homes.

Physical Description[edit]

A diamond dog stands at a bit shorter height than a human would, they would be a bit lighter than a human in weight. The overall build might be brutish/canine look, but they are thin too. They typically have fur in greys or earth tones, their eyes are also in earth tones. Their claws appear sharp enough to dig through solid dirt.


If some other race can provide them with gemstones willingly, they will most likely be friendly. Though mainly they are singleminded in tracking down gemstones. As such they don't exactly get along with other races too often.


Any Neutral


Gem rich caverns.


Any involving gemstones or strength.


At best they can speak common. They also know other rough sounding or brutish languages if they are even smart enough for that.


Fido, Ruff, Butch, basically names dogs would get.
