Not that the, um... I'm not sure who's the boss in an underground dwarven shelter housed by squirrel people? And yes, there's a squirrel people race, because this is fantasy, and that's how fantasy rolls.
Actually, given what I'm poking fun at, there's probably at least three varieties of squirrel people with different daily powers and skill bonuses.
ANYWAY, whoever's hand that is isn't wrong. The music out there is SO METAL.
