Dwellers of stone and miners of metal, the Dwarves are a doughty folk, resistant to the corruption of the Enemy -- but not to greed.

Dwarves can be excellent warriors, displaying unique toughness in battle and ability to craft great things.

The stout Dwarves of Middle-earth are known for their steadfast determination, hearty strength, and commitment to all things found in the world’s deep places. Living a secretive life in their homes beneath the great mountains, Dwarves are expert miners and workers of stone and metal. They stand on average four-and-a-half to five feet high, and live long lives, occasionally reaching an age of 250 years.

Playable Classes: Brawler, Captain, Champion, Guardian, Hunter, Minstrel, Rune-keeper, Warden

Starting Area: Silver Deep / Ered Luin

Dwarf Names

Dwarves tend towards short, simple Norse-styled names.

  • Common endings are -ori, -óin, -íli, -alin, -orin, -osi, -imli, and ormur

These are coupled with

  • beginings using consonants like D-, F-, G-, H-, K-, L-, M-, N-, R-, T-, Th-, and W-, or paired consonants like Dr-, Dw-, Fl-, Gl-, or Thr-

Examples are Dori, Glóin, Kili, Balin, Thorin, Flosi, Gimli, and Gormur

A few dwarves have more complex names, combining whole words with specific endings or other whole words. (Examples: Skorgrím, Einskaldir.)

Dwarf Origins

  • of the White Mountains - You are from the southwestern halls of Ered Nimrais, the White Mountains in the south bordering the lands of Andrast. Though your kingdom lies far from the central mountains where Men once dwelt, the rumour of the Oathbreakers has given your realm an ill name.
