My New Idea Creature Idea - Mole Rat (Pachyderm Workhorse)
Giant Mole Rat

On first encounter with this creature it will be a nuisance! It could tunnel around the level causing walls to collapse and raiding your supplies of antroot. However you could find a nest/burrow or get the ugly Mole Rat really drunk with beer and have it do some faster mining with its huge digging teeth and be a pachyderm to carry lots of items out of an area such as a strip mine. It takes forever to have imps go back and forth gathering, so this would solve that problem to an extent.

It could be paired with a trainer imp of some kind who leads it around and feeds it. This leads me into orcs riding moles -- serving as pachyderms these moles could be ridden by orcs and other characters into battle on top of their hauling and mining capabilities. I think this could be a general workhorse that allows for speeding up many things.

Balancing: to keep things balanced, these giant moles would need to eat a lot so sustaining them would take a fair amount of resources to offset their usefulness some.
