Dwarves are a stout race, both in stature and personality. They are as unmoving as the rock they tunnel through, and feel more at home out of the sun than in it. They’re particularly uneasy in situations that require them to get off the ground; flying and boating are quite against their nature. Additionally, they strongly distrust magic-users and their arts. There are two particular kinds of dwarves: mountain dwarves that live in Thorbardin, and hill dwarves, also known as the Neidar.
The clans Hylar, Daewar, and Klar are all mountain clans. The Neidar clan is also known as the hill dwarves, and reside in Hillhome. The Theiwar and Dewar clans also live in the mountains, but they reside in the lower depths of Thorbardin, and are known around the other mountain clans as the Derro, or dark dwarves.
