Man I really loved the whole write up Wallace has at Ludus Ludorum . He has a great take on Wood elves, and I really like how he’s tied them to the ecology of his world. So I’m totally shamelessly borrowing that set up to rework the dwarves in a setting I’m working on. If you didn’t know by now, I’m kind of a tinkerer when it comes to world building. I love to do it, and I have a thousand ideas all percolating in the back of my brain. It’s one of the ways I relax.
I won’t go super detailed into the analysis of what we know about Dwarves from 5th ed, we know they’re hardy, poison resistant, slow but steady, and everyone of them knows how to use axes, hammers, medium armor, and shields. Instead I’m going to jump right to what I’ve got for them.
