Dwarf Variant[edit]

We live and die the same way. Doing what we love.
—Dwarmir, goddess of Dwarves

Dwarves are a short and stocky race, with wide, compact bodies that account for their burly appearance. Both male and female dwarves pride themselves on their long beards, with the main difference between the genders is the downy softness of the female dwarves’ hair.

Terrados dwarves were born of the air elementals, who strove to escape what was expected and be truly free. Dwarves have dug deep, bringing air to the deep places of the world.

Dwarves are a boisterous people, working hard, playing harder, they take pride in their work and elevate those with the best skills to places of leadership. Particularly those that show skill in leadership. Generous by nature, dwarves will come to trust people that repay that generosity far quicker than those that simply take. They mostly eat fungi and insects, though they make excellent strong drinks out of these.

Due to their completely unique origin, terrados dwarves share no racial traits with their brethren, although some traits have been enhanced.
