Marauders of Ig
The dwarves live in scattered communities throughout Ig. They live in small communes not more than two dozen strong, and will always be found in even numbers. They live in small complexes below the earth, often built into the hills and mountains where they can mine safely. Eons ago they built their great mountain fastnesses into an empire called Mak. Ig is in fact a dwarf word for “The Land.” However, their downfall came, as the human tales go, when they delved too deep. From their deepest mines crawled hordes of monstrous insects that devoured everything in their path. The dwarven people were driven into the lands below, and have lived with and beside man ever since. The dwarves have great wisdom in regards to metallurgy, and the finest arms and armor are usually dwarven make.
