From muscular to stocky.

“Older than most, these short legged nuggets of living rock, are the core of legend.”
During the 1st Cataclysm a new Race emerged, the Dwarfs. These where as thoug nuggets of living rock and quickly made strong bonds with Drakk- and Ljost Alfar from which they learned Skills such as Crafting, Enhancing and Alchemy.
When the 1st Cataclysm and the Old Reshape had ended they spread across the World.
So, long before the Wanderers crossed The Rim there where eleven Dwarven Houses. It’s known both from Dwarven, Ljost Alfar and Drakk Alfar lore. That the Races interacted, Ühmrar's tribe in Mt. Ljostia Ljostari was the most open and even intermarried with Drakk Alfar. Some old lore hint at this being the origin of the Moss'ari, but it’s not so.
The 1st and 2nd Houses was extremely open to Other Races and ecen intermarried on a large scale. The other nine Houses as such kept from mixing their blood, except for extremely rare marriages out of their own House and then mostly into other Dwarven Houses.

When the swarm it came… Dwarven lost their fame…
City, town, stronghold, and crevasse… empty of sound…
Mile by mile they lost their ground… ores… and joy…
Eventually cutting off… their Human girl and boy…
As the Wanderers swarmed the islands and began settling in their lands. Conflicts began to brew and erupt. And as generations passed Humans, due their breeding and short lifespan, outnumbered the long-lived Dwarfs. And they slowly lost their former homes, faith in the Wanderers, the half-breed children Moss'ari and Izir. A distancing that ignited another split down the indigenous older Races, Ljost Alfar and Drakk Alfar, began to shun Dwarfs. So, slowly tension built up and all 5 races became more and more secretive to the others. Eventually armed conflicts began to break out between the races, firing off a full scale war.
It ended with the Vornir announcing their work flawed and released all their creations Truenames in the Hymn of Truenames. Leaving it up to the Boriac and Gods what should happen. The Gods gladly stepped in and started to scheme and plot to position themselves. But, when Boriacs stepped out of the Astral and into the shadows of our World, attacking Vular, Dwarfs and both Alfar Races. The Gods threw themselves in at different sides, resulting in a clash of such force, that Ljostari was consumed and sank into the The Deep Blue. Replaced by a volcano -said to forever burn their Souls.
Since the end of the War of Elves and Dwarfs all the five Races have also become remote to Humans and Vular never regained their might.

General Description: Short stocky people who tend to shun other races and its a rare occasion if a non-dwarf enters their domains.
They generally live in cities, towns, strongholds or laboratories carved out of solid rock. Rarely they do construct from rock elements and extremely seldom do they feel at ease in wood or similar thin or weak constructions.
