ABOUT

Mukis are small, dwarf– or goblin-like creatures that inhabit the mines. Fey creatures, they are seemingly ageless and unceasing in their love of mining. Some legends say they come from the dark places of the fey world, and regard even their gloomy mineshafts as though they were paradises. A muki has a ruddy face, large feet, and eyes that glitter like metal. They typically have long, very light blond hair, and the males have white beards.

  • Consummate Professionals. Mukis are engrossed in their mining and little else. Thus, they are almost always dressed in work clothes, and take breaks from mining only to carouse or to satisfy their curiosity about other miners. Mukis know almost everything there is to know about earthworks. Other miners who impress them with their manners and hard work may earn a whistle of warning or a clue leading to a new vein. Conversely, sloppy or disruptive rivals may face sabotage from the mukis.

    Bargainers. Mukis have little to do with the outside world, and so sometimes can be appeased or hired with things like fresh food, clothing, drink, or promises of companionship. However, if the muki is not completely satisfied they have been given what they are owed, they almost invariably kill the offender.

    Not the Friendly Type. Mukis are sometimes found in small groups, mining together, but often prefer to live in solitude. They are only likely to approach, or even let themselves be seen by, other miners, people who have things they want, and those who show proper manners and hard work.
