The Fayn and the Veil
Dwarfs stand between 3’8’’ and 4’6’’ but measure 3’ wide across the shoulders on average. They are heavily built creatures with odd proportions compared to humans.
The Dwarves have been around for a long time. Their written histories predate those of the elves by nearly 100,000 years. (The accuracy of Dwarven historians is constantly challenged and decried by any government not reliant on Dwaven trade)
