Earth Dwarf

Written by Pookas Kreations

Earth Dwarves are cousins of the Fire Dwarves. They are very similar except that they are linked to an earth elemental or outsider instead of fire. They live on a large island, called Terranus that's between Atlantia and Draconia.


Major language groups and dialects

On Terranus Dwarven and Terran are the most common languages.

Culture and cultural heritage

Their culture is similar to the ancient Turkish people, and they follow Tenegrism (shamanic, earth, ancestor and animal worship). Even with their developing society, they hold to their roots and in some ways evolve it to fit the times. Water from deep in the earth is also considered sacred.

Shared customary codes and values

Finish what you start, keep your word, don't lie, and don't be lazy.

Average technological level

Earth Dwarves are a dynamic culture in the engineering age but on the cusp of the technologic age.

Common Etiquette rules

Earth Dwarves are friendly and hospitable but tend to be impatient and gruff while working.

Common Dress code

They wear a utilitarian style of clothes, this often depending on their Guild or job.

Art & Architecture

Earth Dwarves prefer to live in or around mountains and volcanos. Instead of constructing buildings, they like to carve them out of stone outcrops, boulders, the walls of caves, canyons, and cliffs. They excel at this type of work.

Funerary and Memorial customs

Their dead are usually left in catacomb-like caves deep in the earth. They are usually near hot air vents or active lava tubes to help mummify the bodies.

Common Taboos

Lying and Laziness are frowned upon.


Beauty Ideals

Both genders tend towards strong chiseled features, this handsomeness is more appealing to earth dwarves than standard beauty is. Tattoos are considered works of art and are usually rendered with red or purple oriculum infused ink.

Gender Ideals

Genders are equal although they tend to drift to different occupations. They concentrate on their strengths, not their weaknesses. This depends on the individuals' choices.

Courtship Ideals

The highest form of beauty is a perfect gemstone. Prospective suitors search for years to find the one perfect stone to present to their partner of choice.

Relationship Ideals

Strong work ethic, honor, and being a good provider.
