Warhammer: Alone Against the Night
The Dwarves are as old as the Elves. But where as the Elves left The Old World for some unfathomable reason the Dwarves chose to stay. It is in The Worlds Edge Mountains that the great Dwarf mines can be found.
Dwarves are shorter than a human but unlike Halflings who look like children, Dwarves are stocky and powerful as strong as a grown man but with a steadier footing. Dwarves all cultivate ample facial hair, even their women.
Since the days of Sigmar The Empire and the Dwarf Lords have been allies. Although there has been the odd falling out from time to time.
