The Pick and Shovel Corps was a military organization within the Sevenfold Mazework of the Great Dismal Delve.[1]


3,500 slaves and gladiators made-up this organization. The gladiators were typically freed after performing above and beyond their station.[1]


Derro served as the "picks" and dwarves formed the shovel.[1]

Both groups wanted to create their own separate communities, but the dao kept them dependent on their generosity for food and tools.[1]

Base of OperationsEdit

The Sevenfold Mazework within the Great Dismal Delve served as base of all dao military organizations.[1]
