The Ballad of the Melting King
The Dwarven race is ancient, and have always been and are a large portion of Edelstein. They are also mutually respected among almost all the races, the only one who has a problem with Dwarves are the Orcs and the goblins, who despise the Dwarven kind. Giants use to have a problem with Dwarves as well, however they have come together and are at peace, since the dwarves realized that many of the giants are not evil, but misunderstood.
Many Dwarves find it there lifes work to rid the world of evil, It is the traditions of the ancient noble houses to do so. They believe in destroying all that they would consider evil.
Also the Dwarven are known to inhabit mining colonies and thus live closer to mountains then the forests and other areas.
The Dwarves did not fight the human beings with the Elves many years ago, infact they wanted to embrace the human beings, as such the humans of Shorr did not hate the dwarves, and in fact respect them, but most do not embrace them. The Elven people were mad at the Dwarves for a time, however since the Dwarves helped the Elves during the Shorr Elven Crisis during the War to end all wars, They had begun a new friendship with the Dwarves.
They mainly live near Hamora and Lundryn but are scattered throughout the land.
