The Dwarves of the lands thrive in two areas, the north Mountains of Velnara and north west in the mountains of the Dwarven isles. The Island Dwarves are seldom seen on the main lands, due to the fact that the last time they crossed the waters was to attack Illarious. Ever since that failed battle they had not returned, but they do welcome outsiders now and then and are not hostile towards non Dwarven visitors. The ruler of the dwarven Isles reigns from the great Dwarven city of Tithrin Hall. King Vallun Thundercrest rules the islands. The Mountains dwarves of Nothern Velnara are a hardy race as well. The main difference between the island dwarves and the mountain dwarves is the mountain dwarves have dark hair and beards such as black and brown, while the Island dwarves have lighter hair colours such as orange and blonde. The mountain dwarves of Velnara live in scattered settlements surrounding their main Mountain hall Aribure, the Mountain Kingdom is ruled by King Grum Stonerunnner.
