The sturdy Dwarves of Kaladim are a reliable if gruff race created underground by Brell Serilis. Their city is located on the western area of the continent of Faydwer, and the Dwarves also hold command of the port which hosts vessels sailing to Antonica and Kunark. They live to fight, drink and mine gems and gold underground. The Dwarves have a strong hatred of the Ogres, owing to the bloody history between the two races, and also hold a dislike for the goblins and gnolls as they too claim Brell as their creator.
The Dwarves are a strong race, and have more stamina than most, and so often make particularly good Berserkers and Warriors. They are also well known as Paladins and Clerics, devoted to Brell - they are fairly wise as a people and so may make good use of their divine magic to heal and cure. Those of the Dwarves who are turned away by these professions often find work deep within the gem mines of Kaladim where a guild of Rogues holds command - these Dwarves are particularly dexterous and so are quite skilled with both a pickaxe and a knife.
Living underground has given the Dwarves the ability of infravision, allowing them slightly improved night vision. They also have an innate stonesense and can roughly sense the bearing they're facing without regarding the skies. Being particularly resillient, they also have an innate resistance to poison and magic.
