Jump to navigation Jump to search

Unlike the other dwarven subraces, gold dwarves prefer to live on the surface rather than in isolation deep within the mountains. They were forced to leave their ancestral homes long ago and now live in cities on the surface. They are great craftsmen and traders but less focused on war. They are the most liked and social of the dwarven subraces. Unlike other dwarves, they no longer have clans, but they still follow the dwarven ways and traditions.

Gold Dwarves are the least warlike of the dwarven subraces. They live on the surface, craft and trade. They still possess the combat skills and great drinking ability common to all the dwarven races however.

Physical description:
These sturdy dwarves tend towards blonde hair and dark skin tones. They value their beards even more than the other dwarves and prefer to keep them tidy and groomed.

Relations with other races:
Gold Dwarves get along with other surface races well enough and often trade with them. They hate orcs, goblinoids, and giants, like all dwarves. They do not hate the deep dwarves as much as the shield dwarves do but still dislike them greatly.

Gold dwarves are often of Lawful Neutral alignment.

Most gold dwarves worship Dorand. Vorax isn't as popular among gold dwarves as he is with shield dwarves.
