Dwarves are famed for their industry. Being creatures of the earth, their livelihood comes primarily from mining precious minerals and performing great feats of engineering and stoneworking. They possess great strength and do not tire as easily as humans, their lives spent primarily underground having hardened them into perfect labourers and also warriors.
Being creatures of industry, dwarves tend to be wary of magic. They shun the use of magic and have made enemies of those who practise it. They are particularly disdainful towards elves.
