Their are three different races of Dwarf.
- The Duergar are a race of evil dwarves who inhabit large underground cities in the Underdark. Previously shield dwarves, duergar or gray dwarves were lead astray by Droskar, and his prophet Laduquer.
- The Dravun or Shield Dwarves are a humanoid race of dour warriors and craftspeople. They excel at jobs other races find tedious, but also have a great love of exploration and discovery. The dravun were created by the sparks that Torag’s anvil made when his hammer struck it.
- The Svartálfar or Nordic Dwarves are a humanoid race of extremely skilled smiths and craftspeople of Svartalfheim. They were created by the blood of the jotun Ymir, and were given sentience by the gods during Ymir’s fall.
