I was always interested in the Diggers, but I’ve never made one until now. Their culture and lifestyle is similar to that of the Native American people, and thus they are similar to the Mastodonoid race (who are like the Inuit tribes), which I have enjoyed playing in the past. I do my best to avoid cultural stereotypes and appropriation, so let me know if anything is off!
