"Guten Tag" - Dwarven greeting.

Dwarves, or welkind (elven faga), are one of the most populous races found on Nora. First migrating from across the Green Sea, dwarves mostly inhabit Untergrund, the subterranean kingdom found within the Wyrmspires.

Appearance and physiology


Dwarves average about 4½ feet in height and are very broad, weighing as much as an adult human. Dwarves have the same variety of skin, eye, and hair colors as humans, although dwarf skin is sometimes gray or sandstone red and red hair is more common among them. Male dwarves are often bald and braid their long beards into elaborate patterns. Female dwarves braid their hair to show clan and ancestry. Dwarven attire and equipment, including weapons and shields, are decorated with bold geometric shapes, natural gems, and ancestral faces.
