Thousands of years ago, the dwarves were slaves of the dragonborn. When Io submerged the continents of the world, the dwarves led a massive uprising against their dragonborn oppressors and won their freedom. Their joy was short-lived, however, as they returned to their ancestral homelands to find all but one of their kingdoms wiped out. Some dwarves have committed themselves to rebuilding Gar Morra, but most dwarves are scattered across the Dragon Sea, living among the humans, halflings, elves, and others. If you play a dwarf, here are some things to remember:
- Dwarves have long memories and haven’t quite forgiven the dragonborn, but they’re trying.
- Status within dwarven society is based on wealth; the rich lead, and the poor follow.
- Dwarves are elemental souls with as much fondness for the open sea as the land.
- As a dwarf adventurer, you can search for the glory that comes only from wealth, help your people rebuild the kingdom of Gar Morra, build your own ship in the name of Moradin, forge new relations with the dragonborn, explore the mysteries of the Hollowdark, or slay the orcs who murdered your kin.
