Dalishmen are the citizens of the kingdom of Dale.


Dalishmen spawn throughout the land of Dale during the daytime, regardless of the light level. They will only spawn atop grass blocks, and will never spawn underground. They also inhabit Dalish Houses which spawn in Dalish Villages. They will spawn and despawn the same way as most NPC's in the mod, unless they're bound to a structure.


Dalishmen will generally wander around aimlessly and ignore any player or NPC with positive Dale alignment, unless of course the player talks to them. If an enemy of Dale approaches, these Men will take whatever weapon or tool they have at hand (often an axe or dagger) and attack the intruder.

As with most NPC's, Dalishmen will occasionally eat or drink, healing themselves in the process.


Dalishmen will drop a bone about half the time. In addition, they can drop food and drink on some occasions, including the Dalish Pastry.
