Dwarf-kin

Dwarf-Kin are stout and powerful beings of a communal sort. They are the only kin who reliably live together in a single unit, each different type of dwarf filling another role in society. Thus they form into fortresses, and fortresses into strict casts formed out of regulated bloodlines. To abandon your fortress and cast is the highest level of treason a Dwarf-Kin can commit, and results in being branded, literally and figuratively, a race traitor.

Formist

The creator cast of dwarvish society. Formists are those who wield the hammers that smith weapons of legend. Though sometimes allowed to leave dwarvish society temporarily in order to apprentice with creators of other races, they live most of their lives under dwarf stone. They worship Krunder or Lindora.

Their eyes are grey like steel or stone or bright silver. Their skin is a light reddish brown. They can live up to 350 years, and become young adults at 35.

Drost

The laborer cast of dwarvish society. Drost work hard to keep a fortress running, ore flowing, and mugs of mead filled to the brim. They are also the least restricted of the Dwarf-Kin, and most likely to be seen venturing outside of a fortress without the brand of a race traitor. Any dwarf not of a specific bloodline, or resulting in the unregulated mixing of two bloodlines, is cast as a Drost. They often worship Krunder, Noel, or Lindora.

Pirate

Not a cast of dwarvish society, but a resistance group. These dwarves left the dwarven fortresses centuries ago, and created their own governments focused on dwarven freedom. Pirates are a resolute folk who go against the tide of dwarven society. They often work with underground organizations to afford their living. If you see a dwarf without a brand, they are either quickly returning to a fortress, or are a Pirate.

The skin ranges from tan to brown, or light red. They can live for up to 275 years, and become adults at 18
