Living deep underground, in the tunnels and mines of the Dwarven
Kingdom are the dwarves of the mountain clans. They work as miners,
explorers, warriors and sometimes even farm what little that can grow
beneath the earth.

Mountain Dwarves look quite similar to their brothers from Uhruul
when it comes to body shape and size. They also have the
characteristic dwarven beard growth, but there are differences.
Generations of time spent underground have led to Mountain Dwarves
losing most of their natural pigment, making their skin quite pale.
Their eyes, which give excellent vision in the underground tunnels,
are usually red and gleam with a dull light. This appearance has
quite often led to the misconception that Mountain dwarves are
sinister creatures, while they are in fact as friendly as any of
the other dwarven clans.

Leaving the safety and shelter of their underground dwellings is a
traumatic experience for any Mountain Dwarf. Under the open sky they
feel uneasy, weak or disoriented, longing for the safety of a sturdy
ceiling above their head. This of course makes it quite hard for them
to learn the ways of those who live and hunt under the open sky. The
rough life underground earns them other traits though, never getting
lost in the tunnels and having increased resistances against the
harsh conditions of the mines makes them more suited for their
environment than anyone else. They are also rumoured to be very
talented in using the tools of their trade. This comes in handy in
both of their major interests; mining gold and breaking skulls.
