Book of Avilorn
Types of Dwarves:
Mountain: Most dwarves live in the Veriber mountains. They are more stubborn and xenophobic than their hill cousins.
Hill: In the dwarven hills is a colony of dwarves who run the trade caravans between the mountain dwarves and races of San Servus. There is a underground city where their king and most of the dwarves live. The hill dwarves are masters of brewing, using local halfling grains for their ales.
Zinzigy: In Virvilir live hedonistic, dark-skin dwarves who are so drunken and lazy that they don’t even wear armor. However, they are very cunning.
Druegar: The evil dwarves live deep within the veriber mountains.
Gnomes: Gnomes, an offshoot of dwarves, live deep within the Veriber mountains. They are a very rare race.
Dwarves do have spell resistance and may not be mages.
Hill dwarves have many scouts who patrol the surface lands. They may be Rangers or (fighter/thieves).
