Dwarves are a Race of Keldanar
At one time Dwarves were common on the face of Keldanar, until the Dwarven War. After the bloody war, Dwarves slowly began to return to the world. Dwarves are stubborn and hold generation deep grudges against Humans, Orcs, Chitice, Maltic, Aocota Elves, and Gnomes as well as most other races. Dwarves have good relationships with Dragon-king, and generally approve of Halflings. Dwarves are sturdy and set in their ways. Dwarves are natural black smiths and excel at stone work and mining. Dwarves are hot tempered and quick to make assumptions but slow to say they are sorry. Dwarves can be found in mountains, underground, and in the few Dwarven cities. Dwarves are often considered only good at blacksmithing and inn keeping. Dwarves are often found as grunt workers and cheap labor. Dwarves look out for their own kind and their allies. If it helps an ally a Dwarf would gladly lie, cheat, or steal from a Pamp. ( Pamp started out as a derogatory word for human and was eventually attributed to orcs, elves, gnomes and other races dwarves don’t care for)
