Muscular dwarf is a type of monster in ADOM. The PC will encounter many hostile muscular dwarves in Dwarftown if (s)he angers Waldenbrook; no other muscular dwarves are encountered in the game unless they are wished for. They are quite strong (always punching through armor in melee and able to dig walls) but surprisingly frail, particularly compared to their human counterparts, thugs.

Corpse effects[]

No effects for any race. Although dwarves will refuse to eat (regular) dwarves on the grounds that they would 'never eat a member of their own race', they will still eat muscular dwarves.

Monster memory[]

The best description for this being is a humanoid tank. The height of the dwarf is the standard for the race, possibly a few inches higher. But the shoulders and upper body characteristic of dwarves have been magnified to an unreal degree. They wander the store stocking shelves, moving equipment around, and assisting the shopkeeper at the counter. Best not to mess with these individuals, as they look like they can snap your neck like a twig.
