3.5 Dwarves (Herregor Supplement)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The proud dwarves were once men according to legend. Warped by the raw arcane energy that crawled across the world when the barrier was shattered, they were made one with the earth and stone of their mountanous homes. They have since firmly entrenched themselves as a separate and rich society, and the only true rival to the supremacy of mankind.
