Spawning[edit | edit source]
The civilians of Rohan spawn only in the villages that can be found in their homeland. They do not spawn afield like the warriors.
Behaviour[edit | edit source]
Normally, they will wander their settlement idly. They are passive and will not attack anything unless provoked. When attacked, they will defend themselves with a Rohirric dagger, or various other tools. They are poorly equipped for battle and can be a useful source of alignment points for evil players.
Drops[edit | edit source]
When slain, Rohirrim will drop any of the items that can be found in the chests within their dwellings, with the same rarity. They may also drop Man-flesh.

Drunkard[edit | edit source]
If the Rohirrim get too drunk, they use the following speechbank:
- Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh!
- Roll roll roll roll, roll-roll-rolling down the hole!
- Hey ho! To the bottle I go!
- I drink, therefore I am.
- Tippity tippity tap! Splish splash splosh!
- My ale! Mine!
- Do not turn me about so, Person. My stomach is not constant.
- Stop walking on the wall, Person! Ho! Ho!
- Here and there, ale is everywhere!
- I couldn't live without my ale!
- The ale is mine!
- Up and down and left and right, I will drink until the end of night!

- More ale in my pail!

- Ah, my old friend! Welcome home!
- Ring a ding a ding dong, sing me a song!
- You'll want to back off, else we'll be having a scuffle!
- My, my, my, aren't you a strange fellow?

- Why do you sway around so?
- Aha, yes, you're a clever little fellow, aren't you?
- Stand still there!
- Get out of my tavern!
- Stay well away from me, Strawhead!
- There's always room for more drink!
- Yes, and a fine place for it!
- Oh, I quite agree, Person.
- I'll have you know I have quite the tale, to have you know, my Person.
- And what a day for it! What a day indeed!
- Don't you like to drink, Person?
- My old friend! Come, drink with me, Person.
- Now's not the time for it.
- I already told you, I have quite the tale for you to know, a tale. Now go away.
- That's not what you say, is it?
- I'm strong, I am. Strong and I can talk too.
- Can't you see I'm busy?
- Those cursed Dunlendings.
- You want me to tell you that old tale again?
- Speak up, Person! I can barely hear you.
- You're a dim old fellow, aren't you?
- That's very clever, Person. Very clever indeed, yes, very clever.
- I'd tell you, but then I'd only have to tell you again, you old fool.
- Here I am!
- Goodness, isn't it dark in here?
- Slow down! All of you, slow down.
- I've had it up to here with your tomfoolery.
- Is it time to go home yet, Person?
- Get away from me, you dirty old Strawhead!
- Someone forgot to feed the horses! Oh, woe is me!
