I'm not a big fan of dwarves, no. Of course, that means the internet thinks I hate dwarves. Not true. I just don't really like them. They feel a bit too cliched and boring to me, but in a weird way, doing things non-dwarf with them seems wrong. I just can't really get that interested in them. Maybe it's the fact that I prefer chaotic aligned things, or I prefer things without all that hair, or I prefer thigns that are more graceful and less squat... but it's also a lot to do with how they're portrayed. Loud boisterous drinkers kind of annoy me in real life, and dwarves do the same, I guess.
The Dragon Age dwarves are awesome though. That's more my kind of dwarf.
They are a leaning a bit toward LE. When you speak with the crippled female thief and she tell his tale I feel a strong impulse to search for the guard and be very medieval on him. Or heal the thief if I had the power and that was possible in a computer game.
But they are interesting and some of the better characters in that game are dwarves.
