Dwarves typically live in hilly or mountainous regions where they can be found living in clan-like societies. They are miners of great repute, and are known for their fondness of precious gems and metals. The typical dwarf is approximately 4 feet tall, ruddy skinned, bright-eyed, bearded (many of the women too), and are quite stocky.
Dwarves tend to be stronger than humans, and are renown for their hardiness. They are not always as quick as some races, but make excellent warriors. They are naturally resistant to poisons and magic, and often fare better against these than most. While not magically gifted, Dwarves are
devoutly religious, and make good clerics.
Dwarves have all developed the ability to see in the dark.
