Dire rats were dangerous creatures. They were much larger than the common rat and were found in dungeons and city sewers. The bite of these creatures carried a potentially lethal disease known as filth fever.[1]


Dire rats could be found in the wild in the Silver Marches, particularly in the Rauvin Vale and Sundabar Vale, as well as in the High Forest.[2]



A dire rat could be summoned as an animal companion in Neverwinter Nights.[3]
