Dwarves are a short , stocky, humanoid race largely living inside of mountain ranges above the Great Underdark. Dwarves tend to have heavy features, thick limbs and deep voices. They males always have beards, the longer the better. The females will grow thick long hair. Elaborate braids are considered the height of fashion. Skin color ranges from pale to ruddy and hair color is much the same as Humans.
Dwarves generally have a strong desire to craft and build things. They are intensely prideful and are highly focused on the perception of honor – the prickly nature of Dwarven sensibilities is legendary. Dwarves are also staunch allies and seldom change a position once it has been established.
Dwarves typically tend to establish monarchies and are ruled by a king who is supported by an aristocracy.
