Dwarves are a short race, as their name implies, standing between 4'3" and 4'9". What Dwarves lack in height they make up for in bulk; they are, on average, about as heavy as humans. Dwarves are a tough, tradition-abiding folk known for their strong martial traditions and beautiful craftsmanship.
Although some dwarves do live in the mountains, this is a stereotype. Most dwarves live similar terrain to humans, dwelling mostly in villages surrounded by arable fields. They can be found all over Ilarion, but are most common in the Yaruj and Falder Nor.
