About

Dwarves are one of the shorter races and most other races look down on them for it. While humans especially view them, like halflings, as childlike due to their size, they do them a great disservice.

Dwarves are quiet and taciturn around strangers but stalwart companions among their own kind and friends. They are lovers of the ale they brew and the various veins of ore beneath the surface. Dwarves can see in normal light as well as with darkvision out to 60 feet. Of all the races of the Material Plane, dwarves make the most skillful blacksmiths.

Dwarves are watched over by the Dwarf Pantheon.

Dwarves primarily speak Dwarven.
