Hardy and bearded, Dwarves make their homes in great alpine fortresses called Citadels which are carved from the very stone of the mountains. They are known for their skills as architects, miners, stone workers, and blacksmiths, and their masterfully made weapons and armour are treasured across Gaeldren.

Physical Description

Dwarves stand only 4 to 4-1/2 feet tall, but they are so broad and compact that they are, on average, almost as heavy as Humans. Dwarf men are slightly taller and noticeably heavier than dwarf women. Dwarves’ skin is typically deep tan or light brown, and their eyes are dark. Their hair is usually black, gray, or brown, and worn long. Dwarf men value their beards highly and groom them very carefully. Dwarves favor simple styles of clothes and generally wear their long hair and beards braided. Dwarves are considered adults at about age 30, and they can live to be more than 300 years old.
