Drawf is a mortal species upon the world of Morpheus.
They are a short, muscular race. They have excellent power use in battle and can keep up for a long time, just like in mining and other businesses. But with running they're easily tired due to their short legs. Dwarves are known to be able to drink a lot and have parties when drunk, often holding many celebrations just for the excuse to drink. They mostly they stay in groups but wanderers are also common under this species. Dwarves live in the mountains and have mined themselves vast strongholds beneath these. Dwarves respect the following things; Age, Wealth and skill. If you get the loyalty of a Dwarf than you more than likely have a friend that will follow you to the ends of the world and back without question, for a Dwarfs loyalty is a very hard fought thing to come by and an even harder thing to get back if lost.
Dwarves are immensely strong and sturdy.They have short stocky bodies with thick leather like skin. They have big, rough hands and feet.Usually accompanied by huge lustrous beards among many of the men, and sometimes a few of the women too. They're are known to be stubborn and un-forgetting. They have enhanced stamina and endurance due to they lifestyles they lead as conquerors and craftsmen. They have reinforced skeletons which adapted to the sometimes pressurised and heavy situations of they habitats.
The general shared personality traits of the race. These could develop as result of environmental factors or through genetics.
Magic Ability and Powers
All Dwarves come from the earth and thus can call on a "stone form" in which their body is infused with minerals and takes of a quartz like exterior and toughness. Some Dwarves are more proficient in the Arcane that others, as some Dwarves cannot "cast" or use magic at all. Dwarves mainly deal in either Lightning or Fire, some other castes of dwarves range from any number of magical affinities, one such is the dwarf shaman, who deals in spirit magic and a minor control over natural elements. Depending on what magic is used, it differs: more holy and sanctified magic draws on a dwarfs faith and willpower, other means of producing magic is by sheer use of energy or mana as some would call it.

What classes are commonly found amongst this race?List of classes
Mountain Dwarf: The colder climate Dwarf lives far up in the north in the frozen wastes, hardened by frigid weather, this Dwarf's skin is much tougher than its southern cousin. It's hair and body is much bushier and burlier to stand up to the icy temperature. This breed usually has a slight silver/grey hue to its skin, a very rough exterior that its developed to scale rock with.
Shield Dwarf: The more tropic Climate Dwarf lives mainly to the southern hotter areas more attuned to modern society. It has a leaner,yet still rigidly stocky form but it not nearly as burly and hairy as its Northern cousin. It can withstand intense heat and has apt senses due to living more often in the wilderness and jungles. This breed is the more common of the subspecies, being the more adventurous and social. This breed looks more like a miniaturised stocky human, with somewhat exaggerated features, sporting coppery-tanned skin and bright vibrant eyes.
Deep Dwarf: This race of Dwarf is the more rare seen one as it hardly ever comes above ground for only the necessities or provisions it needs for its almost constant excursions into the depths of the world, hungering and lusting after long lost riches forgotten by most of the above world. It has poor eyesight but incredible hearing. This breed almost always has a pale/deathly look to it due to no contact with the sun, with large ears to catch sounds.
Separate section for hybrids: ideally, hybrids would have both strengths and weaknesses from both (or all) the species they originate from. Add some pointers here; no strict rules because each hybrid will probably have different genetics.
