The Taurethrim farmer is a special NPC that the player can both hire and trade units from, much like the Hobbit Farmer. They spawn in farms which can be found in villages.


These NPCs usually remain within their farm, and can be easily recognised by the silver coin they hold in one hand and the hoe they carry in the other.

Also, just like all other trading NPCs, these will not attack enemies or players without being first provoked, at which point they will attempt to fight back using their hoe.


Anyone can trade with the farmers, unless they have negative Taurethrim alignment. Farmers will sell a variety of agricultural items, such as crops, seeds, and much more.

They are also eager to purchase equipment for use on their farms, such as buckets, hoes, and bonemeal.

Upon trading with a farmer, the player will earn the achievement "Tropical Crops".

These traders will not only sell items, but will also allow you to purchase farmhands, NPCs to manage your farm. Once one gains the required +50 alignment to the Taurethrim, these units can be purchased starting at forty silver coins. However, this price shall decrease as you gain further alignment.

Upon hiring a farmhand from a farmer, the player earns the achievement "Care of the Earth".


Upon death, farmers will usually drop bones, silver coins and various other crops.
