Gramarye & Regret
Rat-Speakers are a small tribe of humans who worship the intelligent rats of London Below, to the point of submitting to them in all matters great and small. The rats generally don’t take advantage of the situation though they do enjoy making the humans bow and scrape to them on occasion. The leader of the rats, The Great Golden, favours certain humans and brings blessings of fertility and foraging to those who follow his tenets obediently. The most obedient Rat-Speakers are promoted to the title of Lord Rat-Speaker and given the ability to communicate with all rats and their brethren, such as mice, moles, hamsters and even rabbits (in a crude patois only).
