A rare collective term for the Drûgs, otherwise known by their Elvish name, the Drúedain. Like the Hobbits, the Drûg-folk represented a distant branch of the human race (though Tolkien makes it clear that these two peoples were not otherwise connected with one another). Historically, representatives of the Drûg-folk had lived in Beleriand and in Númenor, though by the later Third Age they were limited to a scattered people living on the fringes of Rohan.
