Dwarvish Roleplay

Dwarves are a very gruff society, living within the mountains and caverns of the world. Often miners and warriors, they tend to live by the philosophy of: Work hard, play harder. It is often very difficult to out-drink a Dwarf, and their short tempers are legendary. Dwarves hail from Kaladim in Faydwer and often worship Brell Serilis, the god of underfoot.
