Dwarves tend to fight defensively and heavily armored, with slow and steady attacks adept at fighting giant, orc and goblinoid enemies.

History Edit

In ancient times a dwarven blacksmith with a strong sense of irony was the one to pick up the Sword of Truth, reforging it and imbued it with powerful magic.

3000 years ago, dwarves of Klip Ten Breem were as numerous and prosperous as any other race, living peacefully amongst humans and other races in Kethenecia, serving the Archmage of Kethenecia.

After Kethenecia’s fall, however, many dwarves gave up their traditions, becoming "black dwarves" favoring the leather and spitting lifestyle as diggers and masons for the king of Legara.

The few known exceptions include the time-travelling Pella, dwarven guards in the town of Nestorep, and the eight dwarves inside the Mage's Pit of Legara's dungeons.
