Dwarves

Dwarves have a long history in gaming and fantasy. They are associated with hammers and axes, gold and beer.

There is an ongoing debate about genders and beards. 5E Dwarves are split into hill and mountain, with duergar added in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes.

Here are tables for Names followed by class, background and character traits. Last are tables for ideal, bond and flaw.
