None of those last few help much but thanks all the same.


So my group is getting ready to take on book 3 of the Serpent Skull AP. We've had mulitple party wipes and at this point all of us have made more then one character. We have a halfling cavalier, a human oricale of life, a half orc archer fighter build, and a elven sorcer. My friend and I both need ideas for our two characters to finish out the party. All

Dwarves are ugly and have ugly beards and I find nothing compelling about their racial stereotypes

I completely disagree. Dwarves are much more interesting then say, elves. Although I'm not a big fan of the 'drunken, axe-wielding moron' stereotype many people associate with them, they have a rich, fantastic legacy dating back to Norse Mythology.

In norse myth, elves were stupid little fairy people who danced around on hill tops and other such nonsense, while the dwarves were cunning, shapeshifting creatures of legend, unparalleled craftsmen that could even outwit the gods. In modern fantasy dwarves are stand offish traditionalists, but they have the wisdom of the deep earth and actually care about the greater world and the people who inhabit it. The elves, on the other hand, are isolated racists who only give a crap about anything if it involves an elf, and anything that isn't is beneath contempt.

As you can probably tell, I think dwarves are extremely unappreciated (and I'm not a big fan of elves).

I couldn't agree more Kazarath! You took the words right outta my mouth.

Dwarves are awsome and amazingly survivable. Elves are cool in pathfinder if you wanna play a wizard, period!

At lunch today I was reading the new Neverwinter setting, and looking to convert it to PF when I came across the section on the big dwarven city and it got me thinking.

What would it be like to have a setting populated by various dwarven clans and dwarf-like races? Got me thinking about all different types of dwarves there are from like, Forgotten Realms, World of Warcraft, Dragon Age, but also from other books and novels even folklore and myth.
Anyone else think this is a interesting thing, would, if offered, anyone play in such a setting?

I love Playing dwarves! I would be over joyed to play in a campaigne like that!
