Land of Altriere
Dwarves are very uncommon in Altriere, and those that do live within the countries borders tend to take up residence in the northern county of Keiras, where mountains are abound, giving them plenty of space. Most of them take residence in their cavernous homes underneath the mountains, but a few journey out from their underground homes in search of fame and fortune. Dwarven merchants often make a fortune out of dwarven metal-craft, and they are known as the best suppliers of arms and armor in all of Altriere, only rivaled by kobold armorers (as rare as they are). Dwarven adventurers are commonly berserkers or knights who formerly served under a dwarven lord. Personality-wise, most dwarves are stubborn and are difficult to sway once they make a decision, and it is commonly known that even the most level-headed dwarves find it difficult to accept others’ differing views.
