Dwarves are short, stocky demi-humans, known for foul temper and great stamina.
Dwarves have high strength and constitution. Their stoutness, however, reduces their
agility, and for this reason they tend to make terrible thieves. They are not
as smart as Humans, but are usually wiser due to their long life spans. Dwarves
make excellent fighters and clerics, but are very poor mages.

vulnerable to drowning. They can also see in the dark with infravision.
without exhausting themselves. Being short, Dwarves do not find themselves at ease
when mounting horses.
