Highland dwarves are distant cousins to the regular dwarves. They
abandoned the mines and caves centuries ago, choosing to live off
hunting and what the forests can give rather than mining and
craftsmanship. The life outside of the tunnels have made them bigger
than their relatives from the underworld, giving the average clansman
a height of nearly five feet. The highland dwarves have kept the
dwarven proportions though, which with the increased height gives
them an impressive muscle mass to say the least. The usually red
haired or blond woodsmen have kept the dwarven social structure,
and live in big village clans, far up in the highlands of the
dwarven kingdom.

Being part of the dwarven kingdom, and loyal to the king, the
highland dwarves train to be a part of the dwarven armies if need
be. Just as their kinsmen from Uhruul, they learn the dwarven art
of axe fighting.

Highland dwarves are extremely conservative and stubborn in their
thinking. Getting a clansman from the highlands to understand new
ideas or new approaches to complete a task is therefore very hard.
Such a simple thing as a logical explanation or an inspiring song is
certainly not going to change his beliefs. As if this was not enough,
they have an old-fashioned way of looking at business which makes
them think of haggling and bargaining as suspicious. Thoralf, their
chieftain, has even forbidden them to take part of the trading market.
