Stubborn, proud, mostly found in mountains, (four?) foot height average. Some travel for map-making, smithing, some uncommon ones for the simple adventure. Well known for smithing abilities, ale drinking capabilities, impressive beards and (after trust has been earned (Or very large amounts of drink have been consumed)) their loyal friendship and hearty mirth and merriment.
Some dwarves leave the mountains in preference of the open air and take jobs as smiths, stonemasons, jewelers and even bankers.
Although many dwarves are fiercely loyal and proud, some can succumb to greed, hate, and bloodlust.
Dwarves and Elves have had wars in the past.
