The dwarves were the first sentient race on Atheles, though they were put into a long, magical sleep and only awoke 4,000 years ago. The dwarves of Atheles are a very industrious race, believing that the only time a person’s hands should be still is when he has passed from this world. While several dwarven cultures exist, the one that is best known in Atheles is the dwarves of Greyhelm. They live in a grouping of cities at the base of the Swordspyne Mountains in the East.

Dwarves stand a little over four feet tall and are almost as wide. The have large eyes, though in the daylight their heavy lids often give the impression they are squinting. Since they work throughout their lives, often reaching a venerable age of 180, they are typically muscular and deft of hands. They have a great mechanical sense, and can figure out most mechanical devices with deductive reasoning.
