The Dwarves live in the mountains to the north of the continent and in the valley between the mountain ranges. They are extremely xenophobic and don’t allow anyone who is not a dwarf into their realm. The dwarves make some of the finest items from metal, but those items are very rare in human lands. A few dwarves emerge from the mountains to trade with the humans in the small settlements near there, but they rarely, if ever, trade their finer pieces of craftsmanship. A few dwarves choose to leave their homeland, but their presence in human lands is small.
Among the dwarves there is a small cult that worship the sun god, Nurgal. These dwarves are outcasts from normal dwarven society and are generally killed by any dwarves who discover them.
