Ashes of the West
A stout race known for their great capacity with metalcraft, the Dwarves are native to eastern Europe and Russia. Prolific miners, their hollowed mountains often attracted greedy and powerful dragons. The Dwarves were known to be adept at utilizing rune magic, and their religion was based upon honor and ancestor worship. Their society was organized in a traditional caste system. It is unknown what their fate was after the invasion. Perhaps they are all dead, or perhaps they simply vanished into the earth, someday to rise again from the ground.
