Resembling humans in many ways, and differing from them in just as
many, the dwarves are a quite common sight around the world. A dwarf
looks like a short and very stocky human, rarely taller than four
feet, but usually heavier than the biggest humans. The heavy beard
growth among the male dwarves is also a distinguishing feature
associated with the race. Most dwarves live in the dwarven kingdom,
stretching out around the underground dwarven capital, which is
called 'Uhruul' among the dwarves themselves. They live in clan
societies that are quite similar to big families, sometimes
consisting of hundreds or even thousands of brethren. Dwarves are
known for their abilities within craftsmanship and engineering. The
ease with which they adopt new techniques together with their
strength and endurance make them among the most feared warriors known
in the realm. When it comes to magic, everyone including the dwarves
themselves, will agree on the fact that dwarves are no magicians. Some
have a miniscule knowledge of a few spells, but most dwarves have no
clue about spellcasting at all, and look at magic with suspicion.

In the dwarven armies, one weapon is more common than any other, the
war-axe. It is so common that some people believe that dwarves are
born with the knowledge of how to use an axe. The ones with better
insight in the dwarven community know that this is not the case
though. The truth is that dwarves just like any other race needs
lots of practice before mastering the art of axe-fighting, but that
so many of them chose to do so that it might look like the entire
race possesses the knowledge.
