Dwarves are a strong people, both of body and of mind. They live deep in the mountains and enjoy mining for precious stones and forging metal from the ore that they gather deep in the earth. All dwarves boast thick bushy beards, even the females have at least stubble coving their faces, it is not uncommon for a dwarf to stroke their beard in contemplation when deep in thought. Although they are generally shorter than the average human, there are dwarves who have been known to grow as tall as an average sized person. Tending to live in seclusion, dwarves are most often found in the world as traders or as owners of taverns as most members of their race also have an affinity for brewing.
