Dwarf Subrace[edit]

Guid day, laddie! Ye hink ye can come haur wi' yer wee sword an' yer lang hair an' yer skinny wee arms, an' except me tae jist lay doon oan mah belly an' lit ye tak' uir lands?! Weel, lang lugs, ye hae anither hin' comin'!"

It took Thia about an hour to understand what in the blazes the ill-tempered redheaded dwarf was shouting and 3 hours to explain that she was in fact not there to take his land. It took her 35 years to convince him to stop calling her "lang lugs".



The fearsome highland dwarves are tribes of dwarfs that live a nomadic lifestyle on the highlands, building temporary mud hut settlements during the winter only to abandon them in the spring. They are very warlike and have frequent clashes with nearby races which range from throwing goats at the castles of their enemies (usually more for humor than for damage) to full scale wars against nearby Orc or Goblin settlements.

Their skin is paler than their mountain and hill kin, and they often have fiery red hair. They are also slightly taller and stockier than the typical dwarf, sometimes being mistaken (much to their disgust) as a slightly short and rude human.

While they speak Common, it is very difficult to understand as they tend to mix in dwarven words and intonations into their speech.
